Send Push Notifications with OneSignal on Web API

Hi Everyone,

Today I’m representing you a easy way to use OneSignal API with Asp.NET MVC project to send push notifications any platform with OneSignal.

Firsly you can download from here the class library which created for OneSignal by me. Then add the library to your project, or build it and implement dll to your project ((!!! Do not forget to set your parameters in Configuration.cs before building a DLL !!!))

MAKING CONFIGURATIONS

Firstly go Configuration.cs and set your App ID and Rest API KEY paremeters.If you don’t know these parameters, go and sign in on OneSignal and go SETTINGS from menu and click KEYS & IDs tab. You can find these from here.


You can find Visual Studio Project Template here


OneSignal Web API configuration, keys ids

 

USING AND SEND PUSH NOTIFICATIONS

Go your API Controller or what you use to trigger. Just get an instance of Notification class and set your parameters. Some parameters is platform specific and I already added descriptions for theese ones. Set your parameters and don’t forget to set PlayerID, then use Send() method to send this notification. Cool!

Notification myNotification = new Notification();
myNotification.contents = "HEELO FROM PUSH NOTIFICATION!";
myNotification.small_icon = "icon.png";
myNotification.include_player_ids = new List { "OneSignal_playerid_fordevice","Another_onesignal_playerid" };
myNotification.Send();

You can download Class Library:

Possible Mistakes

  • Install v.10.0.3 or newer version of Newtonsoft.Json to your main project.
  • Do not forget set your App ID and RestAPI KEY in Configuration.cs
