application in Amazon SNS


I want to create an Android platform application for push messaging in Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS). How can I do that?

To use the Amazon SNS console to create a Google Cloud Messaging (GCM) push notification platform, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Amazon SNS console.
  2. In the navigation pane, under Applications, choose Create platform application.
  3. For Application name, type your application's name.
  4. For Push notification platform, choose Google Cloud Messaging (GCM).
  5. For API key, enter the Legacy server key for your Firebase Cloud Messaging project. To find your legacy server key, use the Firebase console to get your project credentials.
  6. Choose Create platform application.

Note: Amazon SNS Mobile Push also supports Baidu Cloud Push for Android devices in China. For more information, see Getting Started with Baidu Cloud Push.
