Overview

**Overview ** Enhance your app capability by using Push Notifications service on IBM Cloud. This service enables you to send real-time notifications to mobile devices and web applications. - Notifications can be delivered to either all application users, or to a selected set of users or devices. - Supports both interactive and silent notifications. - Customers can choose to subscribe to specific tags or topics for notification. - Enables the app owner to analyze the number of devices that are registered to receive notifications and the number of notifications sent. **Getting started** Get started by looking through our service [documentation](https://console.bluemix.net/docs/services/mobilepush/index.html) to understand the features and capabilities. It also has information on monitoring and troubleshooting aspects for any issues that you might come across. **REST APIs** The current document gives you detailed instructions on using our REST APIs. You can either use our SDK (software development kit) or REST (Representational State Transfer) API (application program interface) to further develop your client applications. Access the below Push Notifications Functions from your back-end server applications and the clients through Push REST APIs - - Push Configuration - Device registrations - Messages - Subscriptions - Tags - Webhooks To access the Push REST APIs you will need a **Base URL**. A Base URL is dependent on the IBM Cloud region in which you have created your Push Notifications service. To get a BASE URL, complete the following steps: 1. Follow the documentation to create a Push notification service instance. An App id is generated after creating a service instance. 2. Make a note of the **Location** in which the Push service instance is created. 3. Select one of the below Base URLs depending on the location in which your service instance is created United Kingdom: https://imfpush.eu-gb.bluemix.net/imfpush/v1 Sydney: https://imfpush.au-syd.bluemix.net/imfpush/v1 Germany: https://imfpush.eu-de.bluemix.net/imfpush/v1 US South: https://imfpush.ng.bluemix.net/imfpush/v1 Washington: https://imfpush.us-east.bluemix.net/imfpush/v1 You may now use the Base URL in conjunction with the REST APIs to access the Push Notifications Functions Updated : 12-Feb-2018 (1)

Pick a key to use with this API. Make sure you are logged in with your IBM id for your keys to be populated in the dropdown below. By selecting a key, it will be pre-filled for each endpoint in the Documentation section that can be used with the built-in testing. If you want to change which key to use for a particular endpoint, you can do so at the endpoint in the Documentation section.
You can manage your API keys in the <MyAPIs> section. API keys authenticate you to your subscription, so make sure to keep them secret. Do not share the X-IBM-Client-Secret portion of any API key in publicly accessible places such as GitHub, or client-side code.
