My push notifications contain custom data that helps route the app to the right place when the notification is clicked. These work fine if the app is open or in the background, but don't work when the app is closed. The notification opens the app but my code doesn't detect the referenced notification event so that I can route it. I have this in AppDelegate.m


    - (void)                                 application:(UIApplication*)application
        // re-post ( broadcast )
        NSString* token = [[[[deviceToken description]
            stringByReplacingOccurrencesOfString:@"<" withString:@""]
            stringByReplacingOccurrencesOfString:@">" withString:@""]
            stringByReplacingOccurrencesOfString:@" " withString:@""];

        [[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] postNotificationName:CDVRemoteNotification object:token];

    - (void)                                 application:(UIApplication*)application
        // re-post ( broadcast )
        [[NSNotificationCenter defaultCenter] postNotificationName:CDVRemoteNotificationError object:error];

I have this JS code in place to catch the notification in my app

document.addEventListener('push-notification', function(event) {
                             //get the notification payload

                             console.log("incoming PUSH notification!")


My question is how do I reference the notification event in the app once the app has cold started? I think this used to work in my app but not sure when it stopped

I have a cordova/ionic app with pushwoosh as the provider. I am testing on IOS.
