How to get push notifications for your app

You can subscribe your app to work with push notifications. They allow you to get new events immediately and without requesting such an event with an API call. These notifications could be used by your program for triggering some actions with trackers, configs, tasks, sending them into your Telegram bot, etc.

Apps can be mobile or web-based. In each case, you need to subscribe it for push notifications differently. Let's examine each of these cases separately.

Mobile apps

At this moment the platform supports Firebase Cloud Messaging

To get push notifications on mobile devices, you need get app's push token. It may be done in several steps:

  1. Firebase projects support Google service accounts, which you can use to call Firebase server APIs from the app server. To authenticate a service account and authorize it to access Firebase services, you must generate a private key file in JSON format.
  2. Contact our support team ( with the generated private key, platform (Android/iOS) and your app's name.
  3. We will provide you with the application for an API call to bind your app.
  4. Get the push token of your app from Google Play Market or App Store.
  5. Then use the push_token/bind API call from your app. Substitute the push token and received from our support team application ID into it.

Web apps

In order for your web application to start receiving pushes, do the following steps:

When creating a subscription, you must specify the applicationServerKey. It should be in BYTEs, not as a base64 string.

Our public key in base64 is


function example:

return navigator.serviceWorker
    .then(function (registration) {
      const subscribeOptions = {
        userVisibleOnly: true,
        applicationServerKey: urlBase64ToUint8Array(

      return registration.pushManager.subscribe(subscribeOptions);
    .then(function (pushSubscription) {
        'Received PushSubscription: ',
      return pushSubscription

Take the endpoint and keys p256dh and auth from the pushSubscription object.


  "endpoint": "",
  "keys": {
    "p256dh": "BIPUL12DLfytvTajnryr2PRdAgXS3HGKiLqndGcJGabyhHheJYlNGCeXl1dn18gSJ1WAkAPIxr4gK0_dQds4yiI=",
    "auth": "FPssNDTKnInHVndSTdbKFw=="

Use the push_token/bind API call with parameters:

You will receive the notification in in JSON format.
