To send push notifications on Android you need to have a Firebase Cloud Messaging Server key and Sender ID. Follow these steps to generate these and enable push notifications in both the Xtremepush platform and your Android app.
- Go to the Google Firebase console at (https://console.firebase.google.com/)
- Create a new project if you currently have none.
- Click the Settings icon and select Project Settings.
- If not already added, add your Android app to the project, and download the
google-services.jsonconfig file associated with that app.
- Go to Settings > Cloud Messaging where you will find the Server key and Sender ID.
In Xtremepush, go to Settings > Apps & sites > click on the matching Android app > Push Settings
Copy the Sender ID and Server key into the appropriate fields and press Save.
Any subscribed users are opted-in against your Sender ID on Firebase. If you change the Sender ID of an existing integration you will lose your current subscribers.
