Push notification delay


I’m experiencing issues with Ionics push notification service. If I create a notification through the dashboard and send it, it processes straight away and is delivered within seconds. If however I create a notification through the API, it has delays upwards of 15 minutes before sending.

Is there a way to set the priority that isn’t stated in the docs? Or will upgrading my account to a paid status have any effect?


No idea, sorry. But this sounds like something you might want to ask the Ionic people directly, they are not too active here: http://ionicframework.com/support#support

Thanks, I’ve contacted support.

What’s strange is that two created yesterday are still enqueue’d!

"created": "2017-08-09T16:30:36.227616+00:00",
"status": "locked",
"state": "enqueued",

Has anyone else had experience with sending push notifications dynamically through the API on a free account?

Just to further this, I’ve noticed when registering a token on a physical iOS device, the type is returned as ‘Android’ - could this potentially be the cause, and what possible reasons are there for ionic to return an iOS device an android token?

Incase anyone is having the same issue, to resolve this I cut out the ionic push API and now send my notifications directly through firebase.
