Push Notification extension

With the Push Notification extension, you can send Push Notifications to your iOS, Android, or Desktop devices. With this, you can trigger alerts/notifications for important things happening in your system. You can do this both in interactive reports and in Scheduled reports.

Following Push Notification services are supported (you need to download the respective app to your device from the app store):

Configuration

The configuration is done via user/extension_init.php. You need to configure which service you use by default (you can override it in a report using dbr.push.options) and the respective API keys for each used service.

$mydbr_push = array( 
  'sender'  => "pushover", // Default sender: pushover, pushbullet, prowl
  'pushover_app_api_token'  => "APP_TOKEN",
  'pushbullet_access_token'  => "ACCESS_TOKEN",
  'pushsafer_private_key' => "PRIVATE_KEY"
);

Commands

dbr.push - Send a push message
dbr.push.sender - Choose another sender than the one defined in $mydbr_push init
dbr.push.option - Set a service-specific option
dbr.push.notify_successful_push - Disable the "Push message sent" message
dbr.push.log.proc - Log the push message activity to database
dbr.push.debug - Show status for each message sent
