Configure Push Notification

Last Updated on : 2022-09-21 03:47:56download

A push notification is a type of product notification, which allows you to specify product alert conditions for real-time monitoring of product status.
For a running product, if the value of a function exceeds the set threshold, or if certain real-time information needs to be sent to users, the app will instantly send push notifications to users. This guarantees the product is running as expected.


You have created at least one product. For more information, see Create Products.
