  3. Enter values for each field.
    • Channel Name: Your Apple News channel name. This is used for preview purposes in the Apple News workflow.
    • Channel ID: Your Apple News channel ID.
    • API Key: Your Apple News API key.

  1. Your Apple News channel ID has no relation to an Urban Airship Channel ID.

  2. We validate the country selection when the Send Now or Send When Live button is clicked as the final step in creating an Apple News notification. If a country selected here is not configured in your Apple News publisher channel settings, you will see an error in the dashboard when attempting to send to that country.
