  1. Add support for Azure Notification Hubs to push messages to web browsers

    Azure Notification Hubs should be able to deliver messages to users via web browsers.

    This should be done through lightweight javascript. The script should be cross browser compatible with desktop, mobile and legacy browsers.

    Basically this would replace the need for hosting SignalR unless you're building something like a chatroom.

  2. Add webhooks to Azure Notification Hubs

    Add the ability for Notification hubs to call an endpoint when an event has occurred on a push notification (push delivered, failed ...etc)

    For the notification related events, we can only report if the message was successfully sent to the respective provider’s PNS. The actual delivery of the message is handled by the PNS and we don’t have any direct visibility in this. Where we can add some hooks are instances where maybe the registration expires etc. Let me know if there are any other places you will find this useful.

  3. Add ability to move NotificationHub from one namespace to another within the same subscription id

    According to this answer in the forums:
    https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/azure/en-US/08a3ffc8-dbf3-4212-8533-d639371e2016/moving-notification-hub-from-one-namespaces-to-another?forum=notificationhubs&prof=required

    It requires contacting support in order to move notification hub between namespaces (sometimes one app get's bigger audience and it's necessary to move it to different pricing namespace e.g. from Basic to Standard)

  4. Bulk tagging of installations

    When we need to add a tag for a set of installations, we currently need to perform a request to Azure Notification Hubs for each installation.

    This results in very poor performance, ruining one of the main advantages of Notification Hubs: massive scalability.

    It is to be expected that many many uses of tags will involve applying tags on installations dynamically in response to business events in the app. Since this may affect as many users as we would later want to send notifications to, it follows that we should have an efficient way to apply tags to many installations…

  5. Support grouping notifications

    If using PNS for iOS and Android directly, notifications can be grouped by using apns-collapse-id https://developer.apple.com/library/archive/documentation/NetworkingInternet/Conceptual/RemoteNotificationsPG/CommunicatingwithAPNs.html and summary notification ID https://developer.android.com/training/notify-user/group.

    It would very useful if I could pass apns-collapse-id (for iOS) and summary notification ID (for Android) through Azure Notification Hub.

  6. Get Installation and Delete Installation By Tags, By PushChannel

    I think azure must provide api to get installation record by Tags and PushChannel.

    Also Delete api by tags and PushChannel

  7. Support push variables in all properties of templates

    Currently push variables are only supported inside the message property of a notification payload. Our suggestion is that push variables should be available to use in all properties. For example...

    In our case we use template registrations and send to large audiences using a single "batch tag" which we apply to registrations using a bulk registration update ahead of a push campaign.

    When it comes time to send the template notification using the batch tag we need the ability to personalise other properties of the notification payload for each registration and not just the message property. Specifically, we need to…

  8. Allow Global Templates

    As I understand it, templates are only held at a specific user registration level.
    For our (enterprise) app this makes life difficult, as I now need to register a large number of templates to a large number of registrations, and worse keep this in sync as templates are changed.

    It would work better in our scenario to have 'global' templates ready in the hub (referenced by name), then send a message to whatever tags, specifying the template desired.

    Under this scenario we would handle any personalisation via the back end app - using either tags or other means (I'm either…

  9. Notification hub - Better way of analytic for push notifications send using Azure

    Notification hub currently provides a way to send PN across all plateforms but the analytic provided is not very usable and real time.

  10. Add the ability to read certificate (APNS) from Key Vaults

    Instead of uploading a certificate to the notification hub (Scattering certificate management across many resources). Having certificates consolidated in a Key Vault makes it easier to manage certificates and makes expiring certificates less common.

    We rely heavily on Key Vaults, for managing our domains SSL certificates, to Azure Service Fabric Cluster Certificate and others. Having the APNs Certificate there provides a one stop shop for all certificates on the portal.

  12. Make Notification Hub as simple as Firebase from google

    I think you know that we have products addressing the same problem as we are. but they do it simpler than we are. For example Firebase code required from dev- much less than Notification Hub.
    https://developers.google.com/cloud-messaging/faq

    "You no longer have to write your own registration or subscription retry logic. " - why we can't do something simple like that!

    Recently when we discussed with customer usage of notification hub and I can't explain why they should use it instead of firebase after feature comparison

  13. Need HA or DR feature for Azure Notification Hubs

    I am opening this feedback on behalf of our customer.
    Our customer would like to find a way to have multiple Notification Hub instances in separate regions to shield them from the outages.
    They currently rely on Notification Hub for their service to provide mission-critical notifications.
    Are there any plans or road-map for High Availability or Disaster recovery features or anything similar for Notification hubs.

  14. Please check and fix possible problems with PUSH notifications in Android and node.js

    A lot of users are having problems with these services.

    Problems with devices registering and unregistering, updating tags, devices that disappear from the registered devices list after two or three days and it starts the "Error deleting the push registration-Error: NotFound." problems...

  17. Provide browse, query for handle/tag registrations in Portal

    It would be good to provide browse/query explorer for registered devices/handles and tags in Portal.

    The interface might be similar to DocumentDB document/query explorers in Portal.

  18. Make NotificationHub fully available in the new UI / RBAC model

    Make NotificationHub fully available in the new UI / RBAC model

    Our development team really wants to use the notificationhub functionality, but in order to configure / manage it, they need Co-Admin access rights in the old portal on this subscription. This gives them full access to all resources in this subscription which is not acceptable for our information security team.

    We really need NotificationHub and related functionality in the new portal so we can use RBAC.

  20. Azure Notification hub Monitoring via Azure Portal and from Azure Log Analytics

    Generally we have an option to monitor Azure PaaS components via Azure portal (ie, Dashboards, alert notify) and from OMS portal.

    But Azure Notification hub doesn't have capability in ARM portal for Monitoring it. But it as in Classic Portal.

    Please advice whether we can monitor Notification hub from ARM Portal and from OMS? Is it available in ARM?
