Notification Hubs

  1. 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.

  3. Add support for Apple's new iOS 13

    Apple APN has changed the push interface for iOS V13, which will be released soon (2nd or 3rd week in September 2019).
    As you can see in https://developer.apple.com/documentation/usernotifications/setting_up_a_remote_notification_server/sending_notification_requests_to_apns it is required to add a new HTTP header named "apns-push-type". Value is either "alert" (for visible notifications) or "background" (for silent notifications).

    Until now, we specify "aps": { "content-available":0, "alert":"Text" } (for visible notifications) or "aps": { "content-available":1 } (for silent notifications).

    We have tested this with Apple iOS 13 Beta 7 and Beta 8, but silent notifications will not get delivered any more.

    In communication with the Microsoft Azure notification…

  4. Allow flagging feedback items for notifications of change.

    I review all the feedback items for each Azure component to understand what is being fixed, what is in preview etc. It would be very nice if on each feedback item I could mark set a notification of change instead of me having to go back and read each one each week

  6. 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.

  7. Increasing the 60 tags per device limitation of Notification Hubs

    Having this limitation requires a workaround for implementations that focus on managing the complexity of social relationships

  8. Notification Hub debugging system like Onesignal

    Hello, sorry for my english.

    We use several applications with notifications, some with OneSignal and others with Azure Notification Hub.
    With OneSignal, it's easy to test a specific device, run a test campaign and manage everything. See if people have disabled notification, application version, etc. etc.
    Make debugging easier. Manage the certificate easily with a lot of documentation.

    In Azure, it's really very hard and boring.

    It is very difficult to send a notification test to a specific device. We are not sure to send 30 000 devices a test notification, etc.
    The monitoring system is not really useful, because…

  9. Write e-mails in recipients language

    Azure sends notifications to me about my account. These messages are in dutch. I don´t speak dutch and it seems there is no way to change it (I contacted support). The company headquarter is in the netherlands, but there a subsidiaries all over europe. Only a few speaks dutch. The language of the e-mail should be dependend on the account of the user, not of the head quarter.

    What are the nature of these emails? Are they account notifications or related to activity within Azure Notification Hubs?

    I imagine that the reason this is happening is because the Azure Subscription your Notification Hub namespaces are configured under has Dutch set for its language. It doesn’t feel like this is something we can affect unless you can change the language for the subscription you’re using

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. Return FCM messageId in REST Api Response Header for all pricing tiers

    The Notifications Hubs REST API Method "Send a Template Notification" should always return the FCM message_id in the Response Body for all Notification Hub tiers. Without this functionality,
    it’s of limited use in secure and auditable applications where message notification tracking is vital.

    The alternative is to bypass Notification Hubs altogether for the purposes of sending and use the Firebase Api directly.

    We have devices register as GCM template device. When we send native message on TestSend blade, it show 'Successfully send test message'. It is not correct, it should tell me the sending failed, please use 'Custom Template' to send message.

  16. Add support for data notifications on iOS and Android

    FCM has a concept of a "data" message, similar to WNS Raw message, that permits an arbitrary JSON payload. They include the ability to wake backgrounded apps to allow them to handle the incoming message (rather than going directly to the OS notification manager).

    Azure should replicate this support and include the ability to use them with Template registrations.

  18. 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.

  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?
