Websites

If you do not know your installation ID, visit your website and make sure to subscribe to push notifications. In your web browser, open the Developer tools (here's how to do that for Firefox and Chrome) and paste the following script in the console:

window.WonderPush = window.WonderPush || [];
WonderPush.push(function() { WonderPush.addTag("test"); });

Mobile apps

For mobile applications, if you do not know your installation ID you'll need to modify the app itself in order to add a secret button or gesture that executes the following code:

WonderPush.addTag("test");
WonderPush.addTag("test")
[WonderPush addTag:@"test"];
WonderPush.addTag("test");

You then need to build your application, run it on your device, subscribe to push notifications and press the button.

That's it! Go back to the segment you created earlier and make sure your installation is now a part of it.
