 Note

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

Add a New RSS Feed

  1. 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. 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. 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"
