IBM Push Notifications features

Enable notifications

Learn more

Create your notification service, then enable tag-based or user-based notifications. These can be configured as interactive or silent and, with iOS 10 or later, can include rich media. Tag-based notifications target all devices subscribed to a particular tag. This allows segmentation of notifications based on subject areas or topics. User ID-based notifications target mobile app users with customized messages. Interactive notifications enable users to respond without opening the app.

Use REST APIs

Check out Push API

You can use a REST API for push notifications. You can also use the SDK and Push API to further develop your client applications. With the Push REST API, back end server applications and clients can access IBM Push Notification functions, including device registration, user registrations, messages, subscriptions, tags and webhooks.

Monitor notifications

The IBM Push Notifications service now extends capabilities to monitor the push performance by generating graphs from your user data. You can list all the sent push notifications or all the registered devices, and analyze information on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. This is important as you look to improve your engagement with users and learn how they are responding to your notifications.
