Even if you haven't purchased beacons from Beaconstac, you can now get NearBee to show notifications in the background. 

Please read how to configure beacons so that NearBee can detect them before following the instructions in this article.

For Beaconstac beacons

Beaconstac beacons by default have been designed to be detected by NearBee and have the notifications displayed in the background.  There's nothing for you to do!

For other beacons

Step 1. Give permissions to our service account in your project

Login to the Google Cloud Platform

Add 'nearbee-attachment-publisher@beaconstac-1043.iam.gserviceaccount.com'. as a new IAM user in your project.

Assign it the role of ‘BeaconAttachmentPublisher’ so that we can publish attachments to your beacons.

Step 2. Make a POST request to the NearBee API

Please see this to understand how to make a POST request: https://www.toolsqa.com/postman/post-request-in-postman/

This is the beaconName. A beacon name has the format "beacons/N!beaconId" where the beaconID is the base16 ID broadcast by the beacon and N is a code for the beacon's type.
N = 3 for Eddystone
N = 1 for iBeacon
N = 5 for AltBeacon.

When you register your beacons on the Proximity API, leave this field blank. After you register, you will receive a beacon name which can be used for further operations.
