PushSubscription.endpoint

Experimental

This is an experimental technology
Check the Browser compatibility table carefully before using this in production.

The endpoint read-only property of the PushSubscription interface returns a USVString containing the endpoint associated with the push subscription.

The endpoint takes the form of a custom URL pointing to a push server, which can be used to send a push message to the particular service worker instance that subscribed to the push service. For this reason, it is a good idea to keep your endpoint a secret, so others do not hijack it and abuse the push functionality.

Syntax

var myEnd = pushSubscription.endpoint;

Value

A USVString.

Example

navigator.serviceWorker.ready.then(function(reg) {
  reg.pushManager.subscribe({userVisibleOnly: true}).then(function(subscription) {
    console.log(subscription.endpoint);

      // At this point you would most likely send the subscription
      // endpoint to your server, save it, then use it to send a
      // push message at a later date
  })
})
