Trouble with Firebase Setup in App and Server

Hamzaa month ago

Hey everyone,

I'm encountering an issue with Firebase setup in my app and server, and I'm hoping to get some guidance here.

I've integrated Firebase into both my app and server, but for some reason, it's not functioning as expected. The frustrating part is that I'm not receiving any error messages, making it difficult to pinpoint the problem. Strangely, the Firebase setup worked perfectly in an older version of my app, but now that I'm using Traccar Manager to build the app, I'm running into this issue.

If anyone has encountered a similar problem or has any insights into troubleshooting Firebase integration without explicit error messages, I would greatly appreciate your help. Thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer!

Dependencies set up correctly

Have you built the right flavor of the app?

Yes..!

Yes which?

Hamzaa month ago

Regular release

Anton Tananaeva month ago

Then it's obviously not the right flavor.

Hamzaa month ago

So which one I needed to use ...!

Anton Tananaeva month ago

The other one.

Hamzaa month ago

I added the google-services.json file to the app and changed the package name. Can you please guide me on what I need to do next?

Hamzaa month ago

Google Release ?

Anton Tananaeva month ago

You have to build the Google flavor, of course. Because push notifications is a part of Google services.
