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.3 votes
Right now the datatype for the APNS-specific Expiry property on InstallationTemplate is a string. I have... no idea what to put there. The API reference is less than helpful:
Since it looks like the expiry ends up as a binary encoded integer value of seconds since the UNIX epoch, I can't really use that to guess what format Azure expects.
This would all be moot if the Notification Hub .NET API used a DateTime for the expiry and handled the translation to the format APNS requires.3 votes
Having a loopback PNS can:
-improve the test capabilities
-improve the onboarding experience, a new user can just set up a notification hub on azure management portal, use the test send and then see the messages arriving in the loopback PNS
This could be a plus: from the loopback PNS it should be possible to manage the registration and the tags to receive, in this way the users can have a complete testing environment for onboarding and get familiar with the technology, without opening development accounts with Google/Microsoft/Apple/Amazon.3 votes
Having this limitation requires a workaround for implementations that focus on managing the complexity of social relationships1 vote
We’ve had customers ask for this, but with the current architecture this isn’t possible for performance reasons. We’ll consider this once we complete some planned infrastructure improvements.
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.1 vote
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.1 vote
