Notification Hubs

  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. 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. cli support notification hub

    Support creating and managing Notification Hubs from the CLI. Not everybody uses powershell...

    Please make Azure-CLI a first class citizen to manage resources...

  8. Support iOS VoIP and Standard notifications in one hub

    My app need standard, silent and VoIP notifications. If I want to support them, I need 2 notification hubs just because of iOS.

  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. 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…

  11. Add support for Critical Alerts on APNS

    Starting with iOS 12, iphone apps and APNS can send critical alerts [1]. Critical alerts play a sound regardless of whether or not Do Not Disturb is enabled or the ringer switch is off.

    As documented on the APNS remote payload documentation [2] the sound key in the notification payload can be used as a dictionary and can contain the keys "critical", "name" and "volume" to send a critical alert remote notification. An example payload would look like:

    {
    "aps":{
    "alert": {
    "action-loc-key":"View",
    "body":"Test Critical Notification",
    "launch-image": "default",
    "title": "Test Critical Notification"
    },
    "badge":1,
    "sound":{
    "critical":1,
    "sound":"alarm.aif",
    "volume":1
    }
    } …

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. APN Tokens should be hidden (password field) in the portal?

    From what I've read the token in the Apple (APNS) section of the notification hub should be the contents of the p8 private key file.

    I pasted this in and it is working fine however the full private key is there in plain text for anyone to see.

    Did i use the wrong key / token here or should this be somehow hidden to stop someone copying it and then using it elsewhere?

    You are correct, anyone with access to the notification hub can view the notification credentials for all notification providers. This is how the underlying API is built and while we could use a password field to hide the value in the UI, the value is still available in the browser. Additionally, it is common for customers to have trouble inputting these values and it’s important for them to be able to verify the value when troubleshooting. It’s important to control access to your notification hubs to prevent unauthorized users from accessing the stored credentials.”

    From our side, we are planning to refresh this UI and we could consider hiding by default with a checkbox to show the value. Technically it’s not secure, but at least hides the value from casual access.

  15. Portal: Show Active Devices, total registrations count

    They only exposed in old portam, but both two values are super important to manage tier. Please make them display in new portal.

  16. 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.

  17. 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?

  18. Notifications

    Hello,
    It would be really great if Azure portal can provide some notifications to users to help them troubleshoot the issue. For example, if a user has lot of subscriptions loaded in Azure portal, it takes a while for some of the blades like Policy Assignment to load. It will be really helpful if portal can notify users like the following message:
    Page taking too long to load?Try limiting the subscriptions in your subscription filter.

  19. 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.

  20. Add integration with unity apps

    I'd like to use Notification Hubs with FCM and APNs to push notifications to a unity app. It would be useful to have a tutorial for this and/or a unity plugin which does the job.
