Delete notification channel without id

13    7 months ago

My app has a bug where it sends different push notification and up until now every notification got its own channel ID, so the user has got for every new notification a new channel which he can then enable/disable by toggle. This bug is now fixed but I want to delete the old unnecassary channels programmatically and I found the way do it like this:

// The id of the channel.
val notificationManager = getSystemService(Context.NOTIFICATION_SERVICE) as NotificationManager
val id: String = "my_channel_01"

But since every channel got created by a random generated ID and this ID has been discarded I can't delete the channel by his ID.

Is there a way to list all channel IDs a user got or any other way how I can delete old channels without knowing the ID

have you tried obtain full list of all already created channels by calling getNotificationChannels()?

iterate through this list and call deleteNotificationChannel(id) for unnecessary channels (NotificationChannel has getId() method)
