What you need to know before starting

Global settings

If you want to activate notifications on the app, you need to fill the information about your Azure notification hub name in the global settings of the app in P-Manager. This service will manage the sending of notification to users.

To do so, let yourself be guided by the following steps on how to create the hub and collect the information needed.

Step 1: Create the notification hub from Azure

Go on your Azure management portal: https://portal.azure.com/

From there, you can create a new resource :
