Introducing the
Push Notifications Console

The new Push Notifications Console makes it easy to send test notifications to Apple devices through the Apple Push Notification service (APNs). You can access logs that provide insights into the delivery process and leverage tools to generate and validate tokens.

Send Push Notifications

The Push Notifications Console includes new intuitive web interface that lets you easily initiate push notifications for validating end-to-end push functionality of your app. History of the messages sent through this tool makes it easy to quickly iterate by adjusting notification attributes and trying again.

Access delivery logs

APNs helps route remote push notifications to the destination device. The delivery of the push notification depends on various factors, namely: device power considerations, device’s connection, priority of the push, application’s state on the device, and others. This feature will help you learn how these various factors ultimately impact the delivery of the notification, by providing some insight into the progression of the notification as it travels through APNs.

Authenticate and validate

The Push Notifications Console includes additional tools to help you authenticate and validate your implementation with APNs:

Authentication token validation. Enter your token and check whether it’s valid for your application.

Authentication token generation. Provide a key identifier, select the private key associated with it – and you’ll get the corresponding authentication token. Your privacy is preserved – nothing gets uploaded to our servers, the token gets generated in your browser.

Push Token validation. Simply enter a push token to see if it’s valid for a particular environment/push type combination.
