PushManager.permissionState()

This is an experimental technology
Because this technology's specification has not stabilized, check the compatibility table for usage in various browsers. Also note that the syntax and behavior of an experimental technology is subject to change in future versions of browsers as the specification changes.

The permissionState() method of the PushManager interface returns a Promise that resolves to a DOMString indicating the permission state of the push manager. Possible values are  'prompt', 'denied', or 'granted'.

Note: As of Firefox 44, the permissions for Notifications and Push have been merged. If permission is granted for notifications, push will also be enabled.

Syntax

PushManager.permissionState(options).then(function(PushMessagingState) { ... });

Parameters

options Optional
An object containing optional configuration parameters. It can have the following properties:
  • userVisibleOnly: A boolean indicating that the returned push subscription will only be used for messages whose effect is made visible to the user.
  • applicationServerKey: A public key your push server will use to send messages to client apps via a push server. This value is part of a signing key pair generated by your application server and usable with elliptic curve digital signature (ECDSA) over the P-256 curve. 

Returns

Promise that resolves to a DOMString with a value of 'prompt', 'denied', or 'granted'.
