We’ve just added a new way for our customers and their development teams to configure Push Notifications within our Developer Tools web application.
Push Notifications enable your software to receive timely updates when messages are either received into an account, delivered from an account, or failed to reach their destination. These notifications can now be configured in our new and improved Developer Tools web application (formerly called Esendex API).
Setting up Push Notifications is easy…
1. Choose the account from which you wish to receive notifications using the Account list in the top right of the page.
2. Decide which type of notification you want to set up (i.e. SMS delivered, SMS received or SMS failed) and click on the corresponding configure button.
3. Supply a valid public URL for your notification handler that will receive and accept the notification.
4. If needed, add any optional notes for the notification you are setting up (this is for your own reference and doesn’t affect the performance of notifications).
If your server URL is unresponsive or errors when Esendex sends you a push notification you can set up an email address in the settings section that Esendex will use to notify you of a problem.
At Esendex we are committed to continually improving our products and services – the Developer Tools is no exception to that. We’d love to hear your feedback, both good and bad, and feature suggestions so we can continue to provide first class applications that work for our customers.
There’s comprehensive documentation for the Developer Tools within the developer area of our website which will explain all of the resources you can interact with in detail.
