What are providers?

One of the key factors in sending push notifications is the integration of your project with a provider.

A provider is a connector responsible for communication between the push technology and its own platform/browser.

We can distinguish several types of providers (depending on browser, platform, or operating system), but the main division is based on the push type:

  • web push - web browser providers using ServiceWorker and PushAPI,

  • mobile push - operating system provider by using our SDK.

Requirements for providers

In the following sections, we list all the requirements for a specific provider and the implementation rules.

The section for managing integrations with providers can be found on the Providers page (left-side navigation > Providers page).

In terms of permissions:

  • every user with access to the project can view the integration details and integrate or modify them (ex. upload new certificates),

  • only the project owner can see the secret data (like FCM’s authorization key or HMS’s app secret)
