APNS

In this area you can setup Apple's Push Notification Service. This service is capable of sending remote push notifications to iOS apps. In this area you will be able to upload the APNS certificate necessary for our platform to send notifications in your behalf.

To access these pages, expand the Settings menu and click in Services like shown below:

Menu 95980acef3

Then you should click the Configure button in the APNS box:

Service box 6a8dcd210e

Please note that before you finish successfully this setup, this service will show the Inactive sign. While inactive you will not be able to send iOS notifications at all.

In the APNS configuration page, you will need to upload a .p12 file. To learn how to generate these files please visit our guide here. Once you have a .p12 file, upload it in the following field:

Upload p12 cd04caec39

Because these files give access to any APNS provider to send notifications to your app, it's a good practice to create these files with a password. In the following field you should provide the password so we can open and extract the information in the file:

P12 password 903763357c

Finally you should click in the Save button to make sure you store these changes:

Save button 02e5062f07

Once you have successfully uploaded the certificate, we will display something like this:

Active p12 b039b91c73

At this point your service will also show as Active in the Services list and you are now able to start sending remote notifications in iOS.

Please note that these files have an expiration date and have to be renewed every year. When your certificate is expired it will look like this:

Expired p12 5b34be6241

At any point in time you can remove a certificate or upload a new one.
