Finding Users

There are a couple options for finding your device depending on the data you currently have.
If you know the device's player_id or external_user_id , jump to Adding as Test User.

If you know specific tags see this section finding device by tag.

Find Device in Dashboard

Open your app or site with your subscribed device. Make sure you are visiting a page of your site/app with OneSignal initialized (code actively running). 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 some data visible. Click the Displayed Columns List filter at the top-right. Some helpful data to check is:

Last ActiveThe most recent time the user visited the site/app. You may want to refresh the page to get updated values.
First SessionThe first time you subscribed to the website or opened the app with OneSignal code.

Check if this is the first time you subscribed to the site/app.
IP AddressIf enabled, visit to see if the IPs match.

Find Device by Tag

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.


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 Audience > Test Users

First, you need to find your device. Once you have your player_id or external_user_id, you can search for it (1), then next to the device record select Options > Add to Test Users (2).


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