ntfy App


ntfy lets you send push notifications to your phone or desktop via scripts from any computer, using simple HTTP PUT or POST requests. I use it to notify myself when scripts fail, or long-running commands complete.

Custom config

Custom configuration can be set in /app/data/config/server.yml using the File manager.


To access the ntfy CLI, simply open a Web terminal and run ntfy:

root@89c61cad-e48d-4fce-bcc2-b82b3b1b8a69:/app/code# ntfy
   ntfy - Simple pub-sub notification service

   ntfy [OPTION..]


CLI configuration can be adjusted in /app/data/config/client.yml.

Access control

ntfy's access control mechanism can be used to configure authentication and authorization.

By default, Cloudron configures ntfy as a private instance. auth-default-access is set to deny-all.

Web interface

The web interface is open to all and can be used to send/receive notifications from one or more ntfy servers. Keeping the UI unprotected is harmless as it's purely a frontend application and one cannot send and receive notifications without authentication.

Change password

To change the password of a user, use the Web terminal:

# ntfy user change-pass admin
changed password for user admin
