The PushManager interface of the Push API provides a way to receive notifications from third-party servers as well as request URLs for push notifications.

This interface is accessed via the ServiceWorkerRegistration.pushManager property.

Static properties


Returns an array of supported content codings that can be used to encrypt the payload of a push message.

Instance methods


Retrieves an existing push subscription. It returns a Promise that resolves to a PushSubscription object containing details of an existing subscription. If no existing subscription exists, this resolves to a null value.


Returns a Promise that resolves to the permission state of the current PushManager, which will be one of 'granted', 'denied', or 'prompt'.


Subscribes to a push service. It returns a Promise that resolves to a PushSubscription object containing details of a push subscription. A new push subscription is created if the current service worker does not have an existing subscription.
