Mobile notifications

Reading time: 2 minutes

Mobile notifications integrate your iOS and Android app with One Signal. Using your own OneSignal accounts, you can now push a notification to your contacts's mobile device (with their permission). Enable these in Mautic's configuration to see them listed under Channels in the menu.

For more information see One Signal iOS documentation and One Signal Android documentation


iOS Code for OneSignal integration

To enable push notifications in your iOS app, add the following code (or a variant of it) inside of your application func of AppDelegate. The code examples below use Swift 3.1. Please modify them to your needs if you're using C#.

// Somehow determine the user email. If you have user accounts, it may be better to move
// this outside of the `application` func of `AppDelegate` in order to determine the user email.
// In this example, the address is hardcoded for ease of use.
let userEmail = "[email protected]"

OneSignal.initWithLaunchOptions(launchOptions, appId: "YOUR-ONE-SIGNAL-APP-ID")

OneSignal.idsAvailable({(_ userId, _ pushToken) in
    let pushId      = userId != nil ? userId : ""
    let pushEnabled = pushToken != nil ? true : false
    let userData    = UserData(email: userEmail, push_id: pushId!, enabled: pushEnabled)

    self.pushUserDataToMautic(userData, "")

For ease of use, I've created the following struct and func for sending user data to Mautic. Create this struct in your app, and import it where appropriate.

UserData struct

struct UserData {
    var email   = String()
    var push_id = String()
    var enabled = Bool()

    static func toJSON(_ userData: UserData) -> String {
        let email   =
        let pushId  = userData.push_id
        let enabled = userData.enabled

        return "{\"email\":\"\(email)\",\"push_id\":\"\(pushId)\",\"enabled\":\(enabled)}"

pushUserDataToMautic func

This is a basic function for pushing the UserData struct to your Mautic installation. It will push the user data, and then display the response from Mautic as an app alert. Modify to meet the needs of your app.

func pushUserDataToMautic(_ userData: UserData, _ url: String) {
    var request = URLRequest(url: URL(string: url)!)
    request.httpMethod = "POST"

    let postString = UserData.toJSON(userData)
    request.httpBody = .utf8)

    let task = URLSession.shared.dataTask(with: request) { data, response, error in
        guard let data = data, error == nil else {
            // check for fundamental networking error

        if let httpStatus = response as? HTTPURLResponse, httpStatus.statusCode != 200 {
            // check for http errors

        // Comment the next 4 lines to remove the alert 
        let responseString = String(data: data, encoding: .utf8)
        let alert = UIAlertController(title: "Response Data", message: responseString, preferredStyle: UIAlertControllerStyle.alert)
        alert.addAction(UIAlertAction(title: "OK", style: UIAlertActionStyle.default, handler: nil))
        self.window?.rootViewController?.present(alert, animated: true, completion: nil);

Notification Stats

In addition to the UserData that gets pushed to Mautic, you can push open / interaction stats to Mautic by sending the UserData struct, with an appended stat JSON key.
