Configuring Firebase Cloud Messaging Service

Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM) is a service that can be used by SAP Mobile Platform Server or any other entity to send a push notification to a specific device. FCM's Firebase Notifications web console allows you to push notifications directly to a device by bypassing the server.
