PythonAsyncioAsyncioTwistedTornadoNativePython-aiohttp V4 Mobile Push API Reference for Realtime Apps

 

These docs are for PubNub 4.0 for Python-aiohttp V4 which is our latest and greatest! For the docs of the older versions of the SDK, please check PubNub 3.0 for Python, PubNub 3.0 for Python-Tornado and PubNub 3.0 for Python-Twisted.

If you have questions about the PubNub for Python SDK, please contact us at support@pubnub.com.

PubNub's Mobile Push Gateway feature enables developers to bridge native PubNub publishing with 3rd-party push notification services including Google Android GCM (Google Cloud Messaging)/FCM (Firebase Cloud Messaging), Apple iOS APNS (Apple Push Notification Service), and Microsoft Windows Phone MPNS (Microsoft Push Notification Service).

By using the Mobile Push Gateway, developers can eliminate the need for developing, configuring, and maintaining additional server-side components for 3rd-party push notification providers.

Enable push notifications on provided set of channels.
To run Adding Device to Channel you can use the following method(s) in the Python-aiohttp V4 SDK
  1. ParameterTypeRequiredDefaultsDescription
    push_typePNPushTypeYesNot setAccepted values: PNPushType.GCM, PNPushType.APNS, PNPushType.MPNS.
    channelsListYesAdd push notifications on the specified channels.
    device_idStringYesDevice id.
from pubnub.enums import PNPushType

envelope = await pubnub.add_channels_to_push()\
    .push_type(PNPushType.GCM)\
    .channels(["ch1", "ch2", "ch3"])\
    .device_id("deviceId")\
    .future()
The add_channels_to_push() does not return actionable data, be sure to check the status object on the outcome of the operation by checking the status.is_error()

Request for all channels on which push notification has been enabled using specified pushToken.
To run Listing Channels For Device you can use the following method(s) in the Python-aiohttp V4 SDK
  1. ParameterTypeRequiredDefaultsDescription
    push_typePNPushTypeYesNot setAccepted values: PNPushType.GCM, PNPushType.APNS, PNPushType.MPNS.

envelope = await pubnub.list_push_channels()\
    .push_type(PNPushType.GCM)\
    .device_id("deviceId")\
    .future()
The list_push_channels() operation returns a PNPushListProvisionsResult which contains the following fields:
MethodTypeDescription
Channels
List
List of channels subscribed for push notifications.

Disable push notifications on provided set of channels. If nil will be passed as channels then client will remove push notifications from all channels which associated with pushToken.
To run Removing Device From Channel you can use the following method(s) in the Python-aiohttp V4 SDK
