I'm trying to send mobile push test messages through marketing cloud.

How can I add my device ID to mobile push so I can send a test message to only "me", not all of the subscribers? Please kindly share the mobile push notification testing method. Where can I find my device ID?

Currently, there are no contacts in my account since i haven't linked my contacts yet.

Thank you

If you have the SDK configured correctly then it will register itself. Once your device is registered you can create an audience list for your device or your contactKey.


You can import a CSV file with a test record, hence you use the new contact for your test send.

Note: your CSV file would need these fields: Contact Key, DeviceID, Platform, System Token

I put these steps here for your reference:

  1. Go to Mobile Push: Mobile Studio >> Mobile Push
  2. On the top right corner: click Add Contacts.
  3. Select the destination for the imported contacts.
  4. Select the file to upload.
  5. Before uploading, certify whether you have opt-in permission from contacts in the file.
  6. Click Next.
  7. Select the application to associate with the contacts.
  8. Click Next.
  9. Map the column headings in the file to the supported MobilePush columns
  10. Click Next.
  11. Review the import mapping. Make sure that the column headings match the data in the columns. Click Back to change.
  12. Enter your email address for notification when the import completes.
  13. Click Finish.

  • I thought you already had it. I used to get it from the app, basically the app developer let me an option to see the configured values where I could get the registered Device ID and then I used it for the test
