Build app server send requests

Using the Firebase Admin SDK or FCM app server protocols, you can build message requests and send them to these types of targets:

  • Topic name
  • Condition
  • Device registration token
  • Device group name (legacy protocols and Firebase Admin SDK for Node.js only)

You can send messages with a notification payload made up of predefined fields, a data payload of your own user-defined fields, or a message containing both types of payload. See Message types for more information.

Examples in this page show how to send notification messages using the Firebase Admin SDK (which has support for Node, Java, Python, C#, and Go) and the v1 HTTP protocol. There is also guidance for sending messages via the legacy HTTP and XMPP protocols.

Send messages to specific devices

To send to a single, specific device, pass the device's registration token as shown. See the client setup information for your platform to learn more about registration tokens.

Node.js

// This registration token comes from the client FCM SDKs.
var registrationToken = 'YOUR_REGISTRATION_TOKEN';

var message = {
  data: {
    score: '850',
    time: '2:45'
  },
  token: registrationToken
};

// Send a message to the device corresponding to the provided
// registration token.
admin.messaging().send(message)
  .then((response) => {
    // Response is a message ID string.
    console.log('Successfully sent message:', response);
  })
  .catch((error) => {
    console.log('Error sending message:', error);
  });

Java

// This registration token comes from the client FCM SDKs.
String registrationToken = "YOUR_REGISTRATION_TOKEN";

// See documentation on defining a message payload.
Message message = Message.builder()
    .putData("score", "850")
    .putData("time", "2:45")
    .setToken(registrationToken)
    .build();

// Send a message to the device corresponding to the provided
// registration token.
String response = FirebaseMessaging.getInstance().send(message);
// Response is a message ID string.
System.out.println("Successfully sent message: " + response);

Python

# This registration token comes from the client FCM SDKs.
registration_token = 'YOUR_REGISTRATION_TOKEN'

# See documentation on defining a message payload.
message = messaging.Message(
    data={
        'score': '850',
        'time': '2:45',
    },
    token=registration_token,
)

# Send a message to the device corresponding to the provided
# registration token.
response = messaging.send(message)
# Response is a message ID string.
print('Successfully sent message:', response)

Go

// Obtain a messaging.Client from the App.
ctx := context.Background()
client, err := app.Messaging(ctx)
if err != nil {
	log.Fatalf("error getting Messaging client: %v\n", err)
}

// This registration token comes from the client FCM SDKs.
registrationToken := "YOUR_REGISTRATION_TOKEN"

// See documentation on defining a message payload.
message := &messaging.Message{
	Data: map[string]string{
		"score": "850",
		"time":  "2:45",
	},
	Token: registrationToken,
}

// Send a message to the device corresponding to the provided
// registration token.
response, err := client.Send(ctx, message)
if err != nil {
	log.Fatalln(err)
}
// Response is a message ID string.
fmt.Println("Successfully sent message:", response)

C#

// This registration token comes from the client FCM SDKs.
var registrationToken = "YOUR_REGISTRATION_TOKEN";

// See documentation on defining a message payload.
var message = new Message()
{
    Data = new Dictionary<string, string>()
    {
        { "score", "850" },
        { "time", "2:45" },
    },
    Token = registrationToken,
};

// Send a message to the device corresponding to the provided
// registration token.
string response = await FirebaseMessaging.DefaultInstance.SendAsync(message);
// Response is a message ID string.
Console.WriteLine("Successfully sent message: " + response);

    }

Send messages to multiple devices

The REST API and the Admin FCM APIs for Node, Java and .NET allow you to multicast a message to a list of device registration tokens. You can specify up to 100 device registration tokens (500 for Java) per invocation.

Node.js

// Create a list containing up to 100 registration tokens.
// These registration tokens come from the client FCM SDKs.
const registrationTokens = [
  'YOUR_REGISTRATION_TOKEN_1',
  // …
  'YOUR_REGISTRATION_TOKEN_N',
];

const message = {
  data: {score: '850', time: '2:45'},
  tokens: registrationTokens,
}

admin.messaging().sendMulticast(message)
  .then((response) => {
    console.log(response.successCount + ' messages were sent successfully');

Java

// Create a list containing up to 100 registration tokens.
// These registration tokens come from the client FCM SDKs.
List<String> registrationTokens = Arrays.asList(
    "YOUR_REGISTRATION_TOKEN_1",
    // ...
    "YOUR_REGISTRATION_TOKEN_n"
);

MulticastMessage message = MulticastMessage.builder()
    .putData("score", "850")
    .putData("time", "2:45")
    .addAllTokens(registrationTokens)
    .build();
BatchResponse response = FirebaseMessaging.getInstance().sendMulticast(message);
// See the BatchResponse reference documentation
// for the contents of response.
System.out.println(response.getSuccessCount() + " messages were sent successfully");

Go

// Create a list containing up to 100 registration tokens.
// This registration tokens come from the client FCM SDKs.
registrationTokens := []string{
	"YOUR_REGISTRATION_TOKEN_1",
	// ...
	"YOUR_REGISTRATION_TOKEN_n",
}
message := &messaging.MulticastMessage{
	Data: map[string]string{
		"score": "850",
		"time":  "2:45",
	},
	Tokens: registrationTokens,
}

br, err := client.SendMulticast(context.Background(), message)
if err != nil {
	log.Fatalln(err)
}

// See the BatchResponse reference documentation

Save the request into a file (in this example batch_request.txt). Then use the cURL command:

curl --data-binary @batch_request.txt -H 'Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary="subrequest_boundary"' https://fcm.googleapis.com/batch

For Firebase Admin SDK, this operation uses the sendAll() API under the hood, as shown in the Node, Java, Go and .NET examples. The return value is a BatchResponse whose responses list corresponds to the order of the input tokens. This is useful when you want to check which tokens resulted in errors.

Node.js

Send messages to topics

After you have created a topic, either by subscribing client app instances to the topic on the client side or via the server API, you can send messages to the topic. In your sending logic on the backend, specify the desired topic name as shown:

Node.js

// The topic name can be optionally prefixed with "/topics/".
var topic = 'highScores';

var message = {
  data: {
    score: '850',
    time: '2:45'
  },
  topic: topic
};

// Send a message to devices subscribed to the provided topic.
admin.messaging().send(message)
  .then((response) => {
    // Response is a message ID string.
    console.log('Successfully sent message:', response);
  })
  .catch((error) => {
    console.log('Error sending message:', error);
  });

Java

// The topic name can be optionally prefixed with "/topics/".
String topic = "highScores";

// See documentation on defining a message payload.
Message message = Message.builder()
    .putData("score", "850")
    .putData("time", "2:45")
    .setTopic(topic)
    .build();

// Send a message to the devices subscribed to the provided topic.
String response = FirebaseMessaging.getInstance().send(message);
// Response is a message ID string.
System.out.println("Successfully sent message: " + response);

Python

# The topic name can be optionally prefixed with "/topics/".
topic = 'highScores'

# See documentation on defining a message payload.
message = messaging.Message(
    data={
        'score': '850',
        'time': '2:45',
    },
    topic=topic,
)

# Send a message to the devices subscribed to the provided topic.
response = messaging.send(message)
# Response is a message ID string.
print('Successfully sent message:', response)

Go

// The topic name can be optionally prefixed with "/topics/".
topic := "highScores"

// See documentation on defining a message payload.
message := &messaging.Message{
	Data: map[string]string{
		"score": "850",
		"time":  "2:45",
	},
	Topic: topic,
}

// Send a message to the devices subscribed to the provided topic.
response, err := client.Send(ctx, message)
if err != nil {
	log.Fatalln(err)
}
// Response is a message ID string.
fmt.Println("Successfully sent message:", response)

C#

// The topic name can be optionally prefixed with "/topics/".
var topic = "highScores";

// See documentation on defining a message payload.
var message = new Message()
{
    Data = new Dictionary<string, string>()
    {
        { "score", "850" },
        { "time", "2:45" },
    },
    Topic = topic,
};

// Send a message to the devices subscribed to the provided topic.
string response = await FirebaseMessaging.DefaultInstance.SendAsync(message);
// Response is a message ID string.
Console.WriteLine("Successfully sent message: " + response);

    }
  }
}' https://fcm.googleapis.com/v1/projects/myproject-b5ae1/messages:send HTTP/1.1

To send a message to a combination of topics, specify a condition, which is a boolean expression that specifies the target topics. For example, the following condition will send messages to devices that are subscribed to TopicA and either TopicB or TopicC:

"'TopicA' in topics && ('TopicB' in topics || 'TopicC' in topics)"

FCM first evaluates any conditions in parentheses, and then evaluates the expression from left to right. In the above expression, a user subscribed to any single topic does not receive the message. Likewise, a user who does not subscribe to TopicA does not receive the message. These combinations do receive it:

  • TopicA and TopicB
  • TopicA and TopicC

You can include up to five topics in your conditional expression.

To send to a condition:

Node.js

// Define a condition which will send to devices which are subscribed
// to either the Google stock or the tech industry topics.
var condition = "'stock-GOOG' in topics || 'industry-tech' in topics";

// See documentation on defining a message payload.
var message = {

Send a batch of messages

The REST API and Admin SDKs for Node, Java and .NET support sending messages in batches. You can group up to 500 messages into a single batch and send them all in a single API call, with significant performance improvement over sending separate HTTP requests for each message.

This feature can be used to build a customized set of messages and send them to different recipients, including topics or specific device registration tokens. Use this feature when, for example, you need to simultaneously send messages to different audiences with slightly different details in the message body.

Node.js

// Create a list containing up to 500 messages.
const messages = [];
messages.push({
  notification: {title: 'Price drop', body: '5% off all electronics'},
  token: registrationToken,
});
messages.push({
  notification: {title: 'Price drop', body: '2% off all books'},
  topic: 'readers-club',
});

admin.messaging().sendAll(messages)
  .then((response) => {
    console.log(response.successCount + ' messages were sent successfully');
  });

Java

// Create a list containing up to 500 messages.
List<Message> messages = Arrays.asList(
    Message.builder()
        .setNotification(new Notification("Price drop", "5% off all electronics"))
        .setToken(registrationToken)
        .build(),
    // ...
    Message.builder()
        .setNotification(new Notification("Price drop", "2% off all books"))
        .setTopic("readers-club")
        .build()
);

BatchResponse response = FirebaseMessaging.getInstance().sendAll(messages);
// See the BatchResponse reference documentation

System.out.println(response.getSuccessCount() + " messages were sent successfully");

You can query the returned BatchResponse to check how many of the messages were handed off to FCM successfully. It also exposes a list of reponses that can be used to check the state of individual messages. The order of the responses corresponds to the order of the messages in the input list.

Customize messages across platforms

The Firebase Admin SDK and the FCM v1 HTTP protocol both allow your message requests to set all fields available in the message object. This includes:

  • a common set of fields to be interpreted by all app instances that receive the message.
  • platform-specific sets of fields, such as AndroidConfig and WebpushConfig, interpreted only by app instances running on the specified platform.

Platform-specific blocks give you flexibility to customize messages for different platforms to ensure that they are handled correctly when received. The FCM backend will take all specified parameters into account and customize the message for each platform.

When to use common fields

Use common fields when you're:

  • Targeting app instances on all platforms — iOS, Android, and web
  • Sending messages to topics

All app instances, regardless of platform, can interpret the following common fields:

When to use platform-specific fields

Use platform-specific fields when you want to:

  • Send fields only to particular platforms
  • Send platform-specific fields in addition to the common fields

Whenever you want to send values only to particular platforms, don't use common fields; use platform-specific fields. For example, to send a notification only to iOS and web but not to Android, you must use two separate sets of fields, one for iOS and one for web.

When you are sending messages with specific delivery options, use platform-specific fields to set them. You can specify different values per platform if you want. However, even when you want to set essentially the same value across platforms, you must use platform-specific fields. This is because each platform may interpret the value slightly differently—for example, time-to-live is set on Android as an expiration time in seconds, while on iOS it is set as an expiration date.

Example: notification message with platform-specific delivery options

The following send request sends a common notification title and content to all platforms, but it also sends some platform-specific overrides. Specifically, the request:

  • Sets a long time-to-live for Android, along with a special icon and color to display on Android devices.
  • Sets the iOS-only badge field in the APNs payload, for delivery to iOS devices.

Admin FCM SDK error reference

The following table lists the Firebase Admin FCM API error codes and their descriptions, including recommended resolution steps.

Error Code Description and Resolution Steps
messaging/invalid-argument An invalid argument was provided to an FCM method. The error message should contain additional information.
messaging/invalid-recipient The intended message recipient is invalid. The error message should contain additional information.
messaging/invalid-payload An invalid message payload object was provided. The error message should contain additional information.
messaging/invalid-data-payload-key The data message payload contains an invalid key. See the reference documentation for DataMessagePayload for restricted keys.
messaging/payload-size-limit-exceeded The provided message payload exceeds the FCM size limits. The limit is 4096 bytes for most messages. For messages sent to topics, the limit is 2048 bytes. The total payload size includes both keys and values.
messaging/invalid-options An invalid message options object was provided. The error message should contain additional information.
messaging/invalid-registration-token Invalid registration token provided. Make sure it matches the registration token the client app receives from registering with FCM. Do not truncate or add additional characters to it.
messaging/registration-token-not-registered The provided registration token is not registered. A previously valid registration token can be unregistered for a variety of reasons, including:
  • The client app unregistered itself from FCM.
  • The client app was automatically unregistered. This can happen if the user uninstalls the application or, on iOS, if the APNS Feedback Service reported the APNS token as invalid.
  • The registration token expired. For example, Google might decide to refresh registration tokens or the APNS token may have expired for iOS devices.
  • The client app was updated, but the new version is not configured to receive messages.
For all these cases, remove this registration token and stop using it to send messages.
messaging/invalid-package-name The message was addressed to a registration token whose package name does not match the provided restrictedPackageName option.
messaging/message-rate-exceeded The rate of messages to a particular target is too high. Reduce the number of messages sent to this device or topic and do not immediately retry sending to this target.
messaging/device-message-rate-exceeded The rate of messages to a particular device is too high. Reduce the number of messages sent to this device and do not immediately retry sending to this device.
messaging/topics-message-rate-exceeded The rate of messages to subscribers to a particular topic is too high. Reduce the number of messages sent for this topic, and do not immediately retry sending to this topic.
messaging/too-many-topics A registration token has been subscribed to the maximum number of topics and cannot be subscribed to any more.
messaging/invalid-apns-credentials A message targeted to an iOS device could not be sent because the required APNs SSL certificate was not uploaded or has expired. Check the validity of your development and production certificates.
messaging/mismatched-credential The credential used to authenticate this SDK does not have permission to send messages to the device corresponding to the provided registration token. Make sure the credential and registration token both belong to the same Firebase project. See Add Firebase to your app for documentation on how to authenticate the Firebase Admin SDKs.
messaging/authentication-error The SDK could not authenticate to the FCM servers. Make sure you authenticate the Firebase Admin SDK with a credential which has the proper permissions to send FCM messages. See Add Firebase to your app for documentation on how to authenticate the Firebase Admin SDKs.
messaging/server-unavailable The FCM server could not process the request in time. You should retry the same request, but you must:
  • Honor the Retry-After header if it is included in the response from the FCM Connection Server.
  • Implement exponential back-off in your retry mechanism. For example, if you waited one second before the first retry, wait at least two seconds before the next one, then four seconds, and so on. If you're sending multiple messages, delay each one independently by an additional random amount to avoid issuing a new request for all messages at the same time.
Senders that cause problems risk being blacklisted.
messaging/internal-error The FCM server encountered an error while trying to process the request. You could retry the same request following the requirements listed in the messaging/server-unavailable row above. If the error persists, please report the problem to our Bug Report support channel.
messaging/unknown-error An unknown server error was returned. See the raw server response in the error message for more details. If you receive this error, please report the full error message to our Bug Report support channel.

Send messages using the legacy app server protocols

If you prefer to use the legacy protocols, build message requests as shown in this section. Keep in mind that, if you are sending to multiple platforms via HTTP, the v1 protocol can simplify your message requests.

Send messages to specific devices

To send messages to specific devices, set the to key to the registration token for the specific app instance. See the client setup information for your platform to learn more about registration tokens.

HTTP POST request

https://fcm.googleapis.com/fcm/send
Content-Type:application/json
Authorization:key=AIzaSyZ-1u...0GBYzPu7Udno5aA

  "success": 1,
  "failure": 0,
  "results": [
    { "message_id": "1:08" }
  ]
}

XMPP message

<message id="">
  <gcm xmlns="google:mobile:data">
    { "data": {
      "score": "5x1",
      "time": "15:10"
    },
    "to" : "bk3RNwTe3H0:CI2k_HHwgIpoDKCIZvvDMExUdFQ3P1..."

      "message_type":"ack"
  }
  </gcm>
</message>

The XMPP connection server provides some other options for responses. See Server response format.

For the full list of message options available when sending downstream messages to client apps, see the reference information for your chosen connection server protocol, HTTP or XMPP.

Send messages to topics

Sending messages to a Firebase Cloud Messaging topic is very similar to sending messages to an individual device or to a user group. The app server sets the to key with a value like /topics/yourTopic. Developers can choose any topic name that matches the regular expression: "/topics/[a-zA-Z0-9-_.~%]+".

To send to combinations of multiple topics, the app server must set the condition key (instead of the to key) to a boolean condition that specifies the target topics. For example, to send messages to devices that subscribed to TopicA and either TopicB or TopicC:

'TopicA' in topics && ('TopicB' in topics || 'TopicC' in topics)

FCM first evaluates any conditions in parentheses, and then evaluates the expression from left to right. In the above expression, a user subscribed to any single topic does not receive the message. Likewise, a user who does not subscribe to TopicA does not receive the message. These combinations do receive it:

  • TopicA and TopicB
  • TopicA and TopicC

You can include up to five topics in your conditional expression, and parentheses are supported. Supported operators: &&, ||, !. Note the usage for !:

!('TopicA' in topics)

With this expression, any app instances that are not subscribed to TopicA, including app instances that are not subscribed to any topic, receive the message.

For more detail about app server keys, see the reference information for your chosen connection server protocol, HTTP or XMPP. Examples in this page show how to send messages to topics in both HTTP and XMPP.

Topic HTTP POST request

Send to a single topic:

https://fcm.googleapis.com/fcm/send
Content-Type:application/json
Authorization:key=AIzaSyZ-1u...0GBYzPu7Udno5aA


Send to devices subscribed to topics "dogs" or "cats":

https://fcm.googleapis.com/fcm/send
Content-Type:application/json
Authorization:key=AIzaSyZ-1u...0GBYzPu7Udno5aA


Topic HTTP response

//Success example:
{
  "message_id": "1023456"
}

//failure example:
{
  "error": "TopicsMessageRateExceeded"
}

Topic XMPP message

Send to a single topic:

<message id="">
  <gcm xmlns="google:mobile:data">


  </gcm>
</message>

Send to devices subscribed to topics "dogs" or "cats":

<message id="">
  <gcm xmlns="google:mobile:data">


  </gcm>
</message>

Topic XMPP response

//Success example:
{
  "message_id": "1023456"
}

//failure example:
{
  "error": "TopicsMessageRateExceeded"
}

Expect up to 30 seconds of delay before the FCM Server returns a success or failure response to the topic send requests. Make sure to set the app server's timeout value in the request accordingly.

For the full list of message options, see the reference information for your chosen connection server protocol, HTTP or XMPP.

Send messages to device groups

Sending messages to a device group is very similar to sending messages to an individual device. Set the to parameter to the unique notification key for the device group. See Message types for details on payload support. Examples in this page show how to send data messages to device groups in HTTP and XMPP protocols.

Device Group HTTP POST Request

https://fcm.googleapis.com/fcm/send
Content-Type:application/json
Authorization:key=AIzaSyZ-1u...0GBYzPu7Udno5aA

{
  "to": "aUniqueKey",
  "data": {
    "hello": "This is a Firebase Cloud Messaging Device Group Message!",
   }
}

Device Group HTTP Response

Here is an example of "success"— the notification_key has 2 registration tokens associated with it, and the message was successfully sent to both of them:

{
  "success": 2,
  "failure": 0
}

Here is an example of "partial success" — the notification_key has 3 registration tokens associated with it. The message was successfully sent to 1 of the registration tokens only. The response message lists the registration tokens that failed to receive the message:

{
  "success":1,
  "failure":2,
  "failed_registration_ids":[
     "regId1",
     "regId2"
  ]
}

When a message fails to be delivered to one or more of the registration tokens associated with a notification_key, the app server should retry with backoff between retries.

If the server attempts to send a message to a device group that has no members, the response looks like the following, with 0 success and 0 failure:

{
  "success": 0,
  "failure": 0
}

Device Group XMPP Message

<message id="">
  <gcm xmlns="google:mobile:data">
  {
      "to": "aUniqueKey",
      "message_id": "m-1366082849205" ,
      "data": {
          "hello":"This is a Firebase Cloud Messaging Device Group Message!"
      }
  }
  </gcm>
</message>

Device Group XMPP Response

When the message is sent to any one of the devices in the group successfully, the XMPP connection server responds with an ACK. If all messages sent to all devices in the group fail, XMPP connection server responds with a NACK.

Here is an example of "success" — the notification_key has 3 registration tokens associated with it, and the message was successfully sent to all of them:

{
  "from": "aUniqueKey",
  "message_type": "ack",
  "success": 3,
  "failure": 0,
  "message_id": "m-1366082849205"
}

Here is an example of "partial success" — the notification_key has 3 registration tokens associated with it. The message was successfully sent to 1 of the registration tokens only. The response message lists the registration tokens that failed to receive the message:

{
  "from": "aUniqueKey",
  "message_type": "ack",
  "success":1,
  "failure":2,
  "failed_registration_ids":[
     "regId1",
     "regId2"
  ]
}

When FCM connection server fails to deliver to all devices in the group. App server will receive a nack response.

For the full list of message options, see the reference information for your chosen connection server protocol, HTTP or XMPP.

Firebase Admin SDK legacy send methods

The Firebase Admin Node.js SDK supports methods for sending (FCM) messages based on the Legacy FCM server API. These methods accept different arguments compared to the send() method. You should use the send() method whenever possible, and only use the methods described in this page when sending messages to individual devices or device groups.

Send to individual devices

You can pass a registration token to the sendToDevice() method to send a message to that device:

Node.js

// This registration token comes from the client FCM SDKs.
var registrationToken = 'bk3RNwTe3H0:CI2k_HHwgIpoDKCIZvvDMExUdFQ3P1...';

// See the "Defining the message payload" section below for details
// on how to define a message payload.
var payload = {
  data: {
    score: '850',
    time: '2:45'
  }
};

// Send a message to the device corresponding to the provided
// registration token.
admin.messaging().sendToDevice(registrationToken, payload)
  .then(function(response) {
    // See the MessagingDevicesResponse reference documentation for
    // the contents of response.
    console.log('Successfully sent message:', response);
  })
  .catch(function(error) {
    console.log('Error sending message:', error);
  });

The sendToDevice() method can also send a multicast message (that is, a message to multiple devices) by passing an array of registration tokens instead of just a single registration token:

Node.js

// These registration tokens come from the client FCM SDKs.
var registrationTokens = [
  'bk3RNwTe3H0:CI2k_HHwgIpoDKCIZvvDMExUdFQ3P1...',
  // ...
  'ecupwIfBy1w:APA91bFtuMY7MktgxA3Au_Qx7cKqnf...'
];

// See the "Defining the message payload" section below for details
// on how to define a message payload.
var payload = {
  data: {
    score: '850',
    time: '2:45'
  }
};

// Send a message to the devices corresponding to the provided
// registration tokens.
admin.messaging().sendToDevice(registrationTokens, payload)
  .then(function(response) {
    // See the MessagingDevicesResponse reference documentation for
    // the contents of response.
    console.log('Successfully sent message:', response);
  })
  .catch(function(error) {
    console.log('Error sending message:', error);
  });

The sendToDevice() method returns a promise that is resolved with a MessagingDevicesResponse object containing the response from FCM. The return type has the same format when passing a single registration token or an array of registration tokens.

Some cases such as an authentication error or rate limiting cause the entirety of the message to fail to process. In these cases, the promise returned by sendToDevice() is rejected with an error. For a full list of error codes, including descriptions and resolution steps, see Admin FCM API Errors.

Send to a device group

Device group messaging allows you to add multiple devices to a single group. This is similar to topic messaging, but includes authentication to ensure that group membership is managed only by your servers. For example, if you want to send different messages to different phone models, your servers can add/remove registrations to the appropriate groups and send the appropriate message to each group. Device group messaging differs from topic messaging in that it involves managing device groups from your servers instead of directly within your application.

You can use device group messaging via the legacy XMPP or HTTP protocols on your app server. Firebase Admin SDK for Node.js based on the legacy protocols also provide device group messaging capabilities. The maximum number of members allowed for a notification key is 20.

You can create device groups and generate notification keys via an app server or an Android client. See Managing device groups for details.

The sendToDeviceGroup() method allows you to send a message to a device group by specifying the notification key for that device group:

Node.js

// See the "Managing device groups" link above on how to generate a
// notification key.
var notificationKey = 'some-notification-key';

// See the "Defining the message payload" section below for details
// on how to define a message payload.
var payload = {
  data: {
    score: '850',
    time: '2:45'
  }
};

// Send a message to the device group corresponding to the provided
// notification key.
admin.messaging().sendToDeviceGroup(notificationKey, payload)
  .then(function(response) {
    // See the MessagingDeviceGroupResponse reference documentation for
    // the contents of response.
    console.log('Successfully sent message:', response);
  })
  .catch(function(error) {
    console.log('Error sending message:', error);
  });

The sendToDeviceGroup() method returns a promise that is resolved with a MessagingDeviceGroupResponse object containing the response from FCM.

Some cases such as an authentication error or rate limiting cause the entirety of the message to fail to process. In these cases, the promise returned by sendToDeviceGroup() is rejected with an error. For a full list of error codes, including descriptions and resolution steps, see Admin FCM API Errors.

Defining the message payload

The above methods based on the FCM legacy protocols accept a message payload as their second argument and support both notification and data messages. You can specify one or both message types by creating an object with the data and / or notification keys. For example, here is how to define different types of message payloads:

Notification message

var payload = {
  notification: {
    title: '$GOOG up 1.43% on the day',
    body: '$GOOG gained 11.80 points to close at 835.67, up 1.43% on the day.'
  }
};

Data message

var payload = {
  data: {
    score: '850',
    time: '2:45'
  }
};

Combined message

var payload = {
  notification: {
    title: '$GOOG up 1.43% on the day',
    body: '$GOOG gained 11.80 points to close at 835.67, up 1.43% on the day.'
  },
  data: {

Notification message payloads have a predefined subset of valid properties and differ slightly depending on which mobile operating system you are targeting. See the reference docs for NotificationMessagePayload for a full list.

Data message payloads are composed of custom key-value pairs with a few restrictions, including the fact that all values must be strings. See the reference docs for DataMessagePayload for a full list of restrictions.

Defining the message options

The above methods based on the FCM legacy protocols accept an optional third argument specifying some options for the message. For example, the following example sends a high priority message to a device which expires after 24 hours:

Node.js

// This registration token comes from the client FCM SDKs.
var registrationToken = 'bk3RNwTe3H0:CI2k_HHwgIpoDKCIZvvDMExUdFQ3P1...';

// See the "Defining the message payload" section above for details
// on how to define a message payload.
var payload = {
  notification: {
    title: 'Urgent action needed!',
    body: 'Urgent action is needed to prevent your account from being disabled!'
  }
};

// Set the message as high priority and have it expire after 24 hours.
var options = {
  priority: 'high',
  timeToLive: 60 * 60 * 24
};

// Send a message to the device corresponding to the provided
// registration token with the provided options.
admin.messaging().sendToDevice(registrationToken, payload, options)
  .then(function(response) {
    console.log('Successfully sent message:', response);
  })
  .catch(function(error) {
    console.log('Error sending message:', error);
  });

See the reference docs for MessagingOptions for a full list of available options.
