The push works well when the App is not running, push notification can show in status bar. but when the App is running in foreground, I can see push message shows in status bar and disappears immediately when push arrives. In the end there is no push notification in status bar. From the log I can see the app gets the push.

Question: why the push notification doesn't show in status bar?

we are using pushwoosh:4.8.4. test device: Sony X compact, Android 6.0

I also have the same problem. I added <meta-data android:name="PW_NO_BROADCAST_PUSH" android:value="true"/> and it still doesn't work. I changed to <meta-data android:name="PW_NO_BROADCAST_PUSH" android:value="false"/> also does't work. Any luck?

Hi Hamy, we had discussions with Pushwoosh team over Skype. here is their suggestion:

Thank you for the information provided. In this case it is necessary to create your own receiver for push notifications received in foreground as per instructions below:

Hello !

Actually the Pushwoosh SDK automatically handles notifications received in foreground. This is equivalent to a click on a notification. Therefore notifications are not saved in the Notification Center(status bar). To prevent SDK from handling all notifications received in foreground just add the following string to your AndroidManifest.xml :

<meta-data android:name="PW__NO_BROADCAST_PUSH" android:value="“false”">

Regards, Alex.

Thank you Alex.

I tried both <meta-data android:name="PW_NO_BROADCAST_PUSH" android:value="“false”"/> and <meta-data android:name="PW__NO_BROADCAST_PUSH" android:value="“false”"/>

neither of them works. The push still doesn't show when the App is running in foreground.

Hi Alex,

I am sorry it still doesn't work with <meta-data android:name="PW_NO_BROADCAST_PUSH" android:value="true"/> , the push shows and disappears immediately. By the way, we are using native app, not PhoneGap or other hybrid app. Thank you very much and Have a nice holiday.

Best Regards, Tang
