Account Setup#

You'll want to Request Developer Access which is asked of you when you first log in to the site. Check your email because you'll need to verify your account with them.

First: Create an App:#

Once this is done you will have access to the apps where you can create a new one if you don't already have one.

Once this is done, you'll get access to an:

  • Application Key: {app_key}
  • Application Secret: {app_secret}

You'll also need something to notify; so once you've created an account and an app, you'll also need to retrieve their mobile app (for either Android or iOS) and log in.

Subscribe to this App; there is a Subscription Link you can follow right from the settings page of the App you just created. You will need at least one subscription to use the notification service.


Valid syntax is as follows:

  • pushed://{app_key}/{app_secret}
  • pushed://{app_key}/{app_secret}/@{user_pushed_id}
  • pushed://{app_key}/{app_secret}/@{user_pushed_id1}/@{user_pushed_id2}/@{user_pushed_idN}
  • pushed://{app_key}/{app_secret}/#{channel_alias}
  • pushed://{app_key}/{app_secret}/#{channel_alias1}/#{channel_alias2}/#{channel_aliasN}

You can also form any combination of the above and perform updates from one url:

  • pushed://{app_key}/{app_secret}/@{user_pushed_id}/#{channel_alias}/

If neither a @{user_pushed_id} or #{channel} is specified, then the default configuration is to send to just the App you provided keys for.
