Creating an Android certificate set

Updated on November 9, 2021

To build a mobile app for the Android platform, you must create a certificate set in Pega Platform. App Studio. In order for the mobile app to use push notifications, you must also enable them in the app.

The unique mobile app identifier specified in the App ID (Package Name) field is case-sensitive and must start with an uppercase or a lowercase letter. You may use the underscore character ( _ ). At least one period (.) must be used to separate different parts. Example:
  1. Click ConfigureMobileCertificates.
  2. Click SettingsMobile certificates.
  3. Click Add certificate set, and select Android.
  4. In the App ID (Package Name) field, enter a unique mobile app identifier.
  5. Set up a signing certificate:
    • If the signing certificate does not exist in the system, ensure you follow the steps of Uploading a signing certificate.
    • If the signing certificate already exists, select one from the Signing certificate list.
  6. Optional: Enable push notifications:
    1. In the FCM Server Key field, enter the key used to authenticate with the Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM) services that you obtained from the Firebase console.
    2. In the Google Services JSON section, click New and select the JSON config file that you obtained from the Firebase console.
