How to add Firebase SDK dependencies

The Firebase SDK is a dependency of the App Center SDK, so if you wish to use the App Center Push, you need to add Firebase dependencies by using the following steps.

Note

If you are a Firebase customer and already use Firebase features, you can skip the following steps.

1. Integrate Firebase in application

  • In the Firebase Console, go to Project Settings.
  • Download the google-services.json file to the root of your project.

2. Edit config.xml

Open the Apache Cordova project's config.xml file, and add google-services.json as a resource-file inside platform android:

<platform name="android">
    <!-- Add this line -->
    <resource-file src="google-services.json" target="app/google-services.json" />
</platform>

Remove the following line that is not needed anymore:

<preference name="FIREBASE_SENDER_ID" value="'your-sender-id'" />
