 Note

RSS Feeds are not supported for web notifications at this time.

Add a New RSS Feed

  1. Open your messaging project, and go to Messages » RSS Feeds.
  2. Enter the source URL.
  3. Enter the feed Template content, using these values:
    • {{ title }}: The title of the feed item.
    • {{ description }}: The description of the feed item.
    • {{ author }}: The author of the feed item.
    • {{ url }}: The URL of the feed item.
  4. Click Add Feed.

Edit RSS Feeds

You can edit an RSS feed's URL or template.

  1. Open your messaging project, and go to Messages » RSS Feeds. At the bottom of the page is a list of your currently active RSS feeds.
  2. Click Edit.
  3. Make your changes.
  4. Click Save Updated Feed.

Delete an RSS Feed

  1. Open your messaging project, and go to Messages » RSS Feeds. At the bottom of the page is a list of your currently active RSS feeds.
  2. Click Delete.

Push to an RSS Feed

The Template field contains message contents (in the form of a Push API request) for messages generated by this RSS Feed. The Template should be a message skeleton, rather than a specific push message. Using the provided values, you can create a generic message frame.

{
   "audience": "all",
   "notification": {
      "ios": {
         "alert": "New item! - {{ title }}"
      },
      "android": {
         "alert": "Android users - {{ title }}"
      }
   },
   "device_types": ["ios", "android"]
}

The example is a standard Push API request, with the one difference being the {{ title }} value. So if you post a feed item with the title "Mayor Runs for Re-election":

  • iOS users will receive the message "New item! - Mayor Runs for Re-election"
  • Android users will receive the message "Android users - Mayor Runs for Re-election"
