I am trying to figure out how the new version of GCM or Firebase Cloud Messaging works so I moved one of my projects to the new Firebase console, If I did not have the API KEY or I want to create a new one... where can I do it?
You can find the API KEY in:
(gear-next-to-project-name) > Project Settings > Cloud Messaging
Server Key is the API key.

project overview -> general -> web API key
STEP 1: Go to Firebase Console
STEP 2: Select your Project
STEP 3: Click on Settings icon and select Project Settings
STEP 4: Select CLOUD MESSAGING tab
Please add new api key from
Firebase -> Project Settings -> Cloud Messaging -> Legacy Server Key to the workspace file i.e
admin should give you access to view the project settings, otherwise cloud messaging tab will be hidden on your console
