Deprecation and Replacement of Swagger End Points for Push Notifications

5 min read

IBM Push Notifications enables you to send notifications to mobile devices and browsers.

It helps in delivering timely and relevant information to the users, even when the user is not using the app or website. Notifications can be targeted to all application users or to a specific set of users and devices using tags. You can deliver the notifications as an onscreen banner alert or to a device's locked screen, thus providing information updates that are quickly and easily accessible.

IBM Push Notifications offers a set of REST APIs that can be accessed from your backend server applications or client applications to consume some of the capabilities, such as tags, subscriptions, web hooks, etc. The Swagger UI can be used to review the REST API documentation.
