Register Device for Push Notifications Using Corona SDK

0 votes
Hi, There are many APIs in the push notification service that use the device token (subscribe, unsubscribe, store device token, etc). My question is how do I get the device token to begin with? I understand that you must register your device with GCM/Firebase to receive the device token but what I do not understand is where that happens. What API within App42 actually registers the device with GCM and receives the device token? Thanks ahead of time! Scott

For future readers, Google GCM and FCM only give the device token out at specific times; the first time the app is ran, after an uninstall/reinstall and after the user clears the app data. You will receive an event.type of "remoteRegistration." The token itself will be stored in "event.token." Since you cannot seem to programmatically request a new token via Corona, I found it best to not only register this token with App42(pushService:storeDeviceToken) but to also store it locally in case the user logs out or unsubscribes or manages to delete the token from App42.
