Create an Amazon Pinpoint application - Amazon Chime SDK

Create an Amazon Pinpoint application

To send push notifications, the Amazon Chime SDK requires an Amazon Pinpoint application configured to send pushes to your mobile app. The following steps explain how to use the AWS console to create a Pinpoint application.

To create a Amazon Pinpoint application

  1. Sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the Amazon Pinpoint console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/pinpoint/.

    If this is your first time using Amazon Pinpoint, you see a page that introduces you to the features of the service.

  2. In the Get started section, enter a name for your project, and then choose Create a project.

  3. On the Configure features page, next to Push Notifications choose Configure.

  4. On the Set up push notifications page, toggle Apple Push Notification service (APNs), Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM), or both, and complete the required fields.

    Important

    The Amazon Chime SDK currently only supports sending push notifications to APNs and FCM.

  5. When finished, choose Save.

  6. Return to the Amazon Pinpoint console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/pinpoint/ and note the Project ID value. You use that as the ARN for your Amazon Pinpoint application.
