Credential Resource

A Credential resource represents one credential record for a specific push notifications channel. We support the APNS, FCM, and GCM push notification channels. Each push notification channel vendor issues its own Credentials and they can vary between vendors. This resource allows you to save the Credentials that should be used for push notifications to a specific channel.

You can learn more about provisioning vendor-specific credentials in these topics.

Twilio Console

You can also manage the Credentials for Programmable Chat in your Twilio console when you are logged in.
