Tencent Push Notification Service Configuration

For customers who cannot use APN or FCM, Medable incorporates the Tencent notification system.

The Tencent push notification API has been integrated into the "endpoints.push.tpns" key of the Cortex script notification module send options.

All Android parameters are available, however, the behavior of a few has been slightly modified.

For Tencent's full API specification, please see https://intl.cloud.tencent.com/document/product/1024/33764.

  • Axon 4.14.3+

  • PATAND 4.13.300 (Android app for study patients)


  1. Obtain Tencent Push Notification Service credentials

  2. Add credentials to Android Patient App

    • Access ID

    • Secret Key

  3. For Cortex 2.16 and earlier, patch the c_axon_room_event_library Axon script

    • In the App Platform open Cortex -> Settings -> Scripts

    • Select the Axon - Room Event Library script
