I created PushFM plug-in for FIAS apps. It can be used in your own FileMaker iOS App SDK applications.
But you need to consider:
- you need to generate a pair of certificate inside your Apple Developer account, that linked to your iOS application
- you need to have a separate server, that will send push notifications and keep constant connection to Apple server (its not possible to work directly from FileMaker with Apple Push Notification Service ) This could be some node.js server, AWS SNS service or my push2fm.com service.
- second certificate (from the pair of certificates) should be used on this separate server to send push notifications to APNS.
- and the most difficult part: FIAS apps not allowed to receive push notifications, but I found the way, how to add a plug-in, that will allow to get notifications. More info:
So its quite complex task, but its possible. I can create a plug-in for you, then help to build your own push server or connect you to mine.
What do you want to do?
Push notification is a great concept, but it has many uses.
e.g. do you want to trigger a script from server?
or show a message to user if app is not running?
I am working to add push notifications to my plugin.
hi what i want is that the system notify when a new event is created. The system i made create an event when something happens: a new user, a new message..... but i wish to notify to users this events even when filemaker go is closed due to the fact that is a multiuser environement. If someone create an event the other should receive notifications even if the app is closed.
