Implementation

Send Push Notifications via Firebase by Postman requires you to have the Postman application installed on your system.

You will test the notifications either using the device token or topic. The receiving app will have a particular Firebase device token which you can use to send the notification on that device. Also, the receiving application will have subscribed to the topic so that you can send the notification to that topic and will be received by any user that has installed that application.

If you want to send push notifications from your server using the Firebase console, first you can check whether it is working or not in Postman.

The FCM request used to send the notification is https://fcm.googleapis.com/fcm/send, the request type is POST.

Inside the Body of the request use the below JSON containing all the details. Below request will send the notification to a single device.

The authorization key will be your server key which you will get from the Firebase console. For more information check the below image.
