Unable to run bms-samples-cordova-hellopush - bms_samples_cordova_push-Swift.h file not found

I am trying to run the Push notifications sample available on GitHub.
Unfortunately, the configuration as outlined here doesn't work.

Docs say:
At the top of your


#import "[your-project-name]-Swift.h"

If your project name has spaces or hyphens, replace them with underscores in the import statement.


// Project name is "Test Project" or "Test-Project"
#import "Test_Project-Swift.h"

So I did for the sample:

#import "bms_samples_cordova_push-Swift.h"

ObjC Bridging Header is set to:


Runpath is set to:


But Xcode throws the error above. What I am doing wrong?

Answer Source

I was able to get the bms-samples-cordova-hellopush sample application running using the following steps:

  1. Cloned the sample:

    git clone

  2. Added my APPLICATION_ROUTE and APPLICATION_GUID in my [your-directory]/www/js/index.js (after configuring Push Notifications for my Mobile Services Starter application on Bluemix

  3. Added the iOS platform to my application:

    cordova platform add ios@3.9

  4. Added the Cordova plugin:

    cordova plugin add ibm-mfp-push

  5. Opened my [your-app-name].xcodeproj file in my [your-app-name]/platforms/ios directory with Xcode (when I was prompted: Convert to Latest Swift Syntax, I clicked Cancel)

  6. Added the Bridging Header. Went to Build settings > Swift Compiler - Code Generation > Objective-C Bridging Header and added the following path:


bridging header

  1. Add the Frameworks parameter. Went to Build Settings > Linking > Runpath Search Paths and added the following parameter:


executable path

  1. Built Project

  2. Uncommented the following Push import statements in my bridging header. Went to [your-project-name]/Plugins/ibm-mfp-core/Bridging-Header.h:

bridging header

  1. Updated my client application to use the Push SDK

Here is my updated AppDelegate.m:

  1. Ran the sample on an iOS device to actually register and receive Push Notifications

Hopefully I didn't miss anything :0)

I've contacted and opened up a few issues with the Cordova team to improve the quality of this sample to make it easier to set up.

Edit: Also, as noted from Sebastian below, you need to disable bitcode.
