Firebase Cloud Message to support for push notification

Does Pega 7.2.2 supports Google Firebase Cloud Message (FCM) for push notification from Pega to Andriod device which are using Pega custom hybrid mobile application?

we are building a Pega custom build hybrid container pega mobile application, and there trying to send push notification. When we are referring the help it is saying below



To enable push notifications for your Android custom app, obtain and then set certain parameters in the certificate set that is associated with the Android app.

Provide the following information:

  • Sender ID – a Google Cloud Messaging (GCM) services identifier used to authenticate an Android custom mobile app with the Android Push Notification Integration services.
  • Server API Key – a key used by the server to authenticate with the Google Cloud Messaging (GCM) services.

To obtain these values, log in to the Google Developer Console website, select an existing project or create a new project, and enable the Google Cloud Messaging for Android in the APIs section. Refer to the Google Developer documentation for assistance with this process.


Now instead of using Google Cloud Messaging (GCM) services (which is paid service), we want to use Google Firebase Cloud Message (which is free). The question is does Pega supports it. for us it is not working when we are using FCM Server API Key and Project ID.
