The following Cordova plugins for push notifications can not be used in the store version and the custom build debugger. You can use these plugins in a debug build or a release build.
    Monaca Backend plugin
    NIFCloudMB plugin
    Other Cordova plugins for push notifications:
      phonegap-plugin-push
      onesignal-cordova-plugin
      cordova-plugin-firebase
If the Cordova version of your project is lower than 5.2, it might not work properly with the Monaca Debugger 5.X.X. There are two ways to fix this issue:

Cordova plugins

In the Monaca Debugger, core and third-party Cordova plugins are automatically included.
Monaca includes the core cordova plugins such as battery status, camera, contacts and device. For a complete list of the core Cordova plugins, please refer to Core Cordova Plugins.
Monaca also includes some third-party Cordova plugins such as statusbar, date picker and barcode scanner. For a complete list of currently included third-party Cordova plugins, please refer to Third-party Cordova Plugins.
While developing your project, you may need to add other third-party or custom Cordova plugins to your project. The standard Monaca Debugger (Store Version) doesn't have these newly added plugins. For this reason, your project might not run properly in the debugger. Therefore, you need to use a custom Monaca Debugger. Custom Monaca Debugger is a debugger that is built from a Monaca project in the Monaca Cloud IDE.

USB debugging (for iOS and Mac only)

Monaca Debugger for iOS supports USB debugging functions with Safari browser:
    console debugging: using a console to diplay message
    DOM inspection: viewing and modifying the DOM structure with live
    updates
    JavaScript debugging: profiling JavaScript performance, setting
    breakpoints and execution control
For more information, please refer to USB Debugging with Monaca Debugger for iOS Apps.
This feature is not available on Windows.

Network install

Network Install is a feature provided by a custom Monaca Debugger allowing you to install the built app (debug build only) using the debugger. For more information, please refer to how to use Network Install feature.
This feature is not available for the Monaca Debugger for iOS available in the App Store.
