Register devices for testing

In this section, you can register specific devices to an app for testing purposes. Each device has a unique Device ID that can be used to do this.

Thanks to this feature, you will be able to see the logs of this device as it navigates through the app. This means you will be able to see all of its session details. It will give you the ability to test your own tagging plan by looking at which events are really triggered while using your app.

You can also use the feature to send a test push to a device and see what it will look like to the user.
