Find Devices & Set Test Users

OneSignal Dashboard - All Users Page: Finding Users, Setting Test Users, Sorting Devices and Deleting Users.

Dashboard > Audience > All Users

All Users shows a list of every device in your OneSignal App, and Data Collected by the OneSignal SDK. Use this page to do the following actions:

You can show/hide the data attributes with the columns button (1), search by Player Id, External User Id or Email (2) and filter by Segments (3).

Jump to details on All Users Data Columns below.

Finding Users

There are a couple options for finding your device depending on the data you currently have:

Find Device in Dashboard Without Player Id or External User Id

Open your app or site with your subscribed device. Make sure the OneSignal SDK is initialized. Then in All Users sort by "Last Active" so the arrow points up to see the latest active devices.

You may need to confirm it is your device by making the IP Address field visible. Click the "VISIBLE COLUMN LIST" filter at the top-right and checking IP Address to view the IP Address column.

You can also check the "DEVICE" column to see the model and Operating System version.

iOS users, the model is based on the Hardware String. Click that link and search for the device you see. For example "iPhone9,3 (12.3.1)" means "iPhone 7 with operating system version 12.3.1".

Find Device by External User Id, IP Address, Tag or Email

If you setup your app or website to collect External User Ids or if you are searching for an Email record, you can use the drop down search by the parameter.

If you added a specific tag to the user like a user_name, email tag, or other identifier, you can create a Segment with the User Tag filter to find your specific device.

To find device by IP Address, you need to get a CSV export of your devices and search them manually. Please see our guide on exporting user data from the Dashboard or use the API CSV Export POST call.

Find Player ID by SDK

You can also find your playerId through the SDK by using one of our Player Id methods in the console for your app or site.

Mobile SDK - Use the getPermissionSubscriptionState method on our Mobile SDKs to log the player id to your IDE (Xcode, Android Studio, etc.)

Web SDK:
1 Using the same browser you are subscribed to your site, open the site URL with the OneSignal code active.
2 Open the Debugger console (F12 or Right Click the site > Inspect).
3 Click the "Console" section and add this code: await OneSignal.getUserId();
4 You will see your OneSignal player ID logged to the console if you are subscribed.

Test Users

Test Users are a special group of devices that you can manually manage in order to test delivery of messages. Any user record may be added to the Test Device list in Dashboard > Audience > Test Users

First you need to find your devices, then simply select Options > Add to Test Users

Next you can Segment Users by Test Users Filter and/or send messages using the Send To Test Device Button.

All Users Data Columns

The provided columns contain a variety of data attributes about your users, as follows:




Push or Email Record


Whether the user's device is currently subscribed to push or email.

Last Active

The last date/time the user's device communicated with OneSignal servers.

For Web Push: This value is updated anytime a user visits any OneSignal-enabled page of your site in a new tab or new window. Clicking links in the same page or refreshing the same page does not cause the value to be updated for performance reasons. If a user clicks a notification and the notification brings them back to a OneSignal-enabled page of your site in a new tab, the Last Active time will be updated.
