The Message Test Tool is used to send a single push notification or email message to a specific device immediately in order to check that your Out of Game Messaging is correctly configured.

 

Push Notifications

Use this tool to check that your push notification certificates and keys are correctly configured and any deep link actions in your game are reacting correctly.
NB: You can enter a userID and press the “Lookup” button to retrieve the Push Notification Token for the player’s device to ensure that you are collecting the token correctly in the game client.
