The Roost Adaptor supports the following outbound action:
- Send a web push notification
Web Push Notifications
Web push notifications enable your website users to opt-in to timely updates from your site and enable you to engage with users through customized, relevant content. Using the Roost adaptor, Swrve triggers a web push notification upon receipt of a selected Swrve event.
There are two main steps involved in triggering web push notifications via the Roost adaptor:
- Create a custom event in the Swrve SDK for the trigger you want to use to send a web push notification; for example, subscription_accepted.
- Create an Amplify rule that is triggered on receipt of the designated event and uses the Send Notification action to send the web push.
Step 1: To access the configuration settings, on the Roost Adaptor card, click Configure.
Step 2: Complete the following fields as required:
|API Key||Your Roost API key, which is located on the Roost dashboard under Settings > API Keys.|
|API Secret||Your Roost API secret key, which is located on the Roost dashboard under Settings > API Keys.|
Step 3: To save the configuration settings, click Save.
After you click Save, the status of the Adaptor changes to Active and the Deactivate button is available. If you Activate or Deactivate the adaptor at any time, the changes apply to both the outbound and inbound actions.
This section describes the fields that are included when creating a new rule using the Send Notification action. For most fields, you have the option to manually enter the value or to select a user property from the list to have Swrve automatically populate the value when the rule is processed. For more information on rules, see Creating Amplify Rules.
