appsFlyer.initSdk(options, callback): void

initializes the SDK.

parameter type description
options Object SDK configuration

options

name type default description
devKey string Appsflyer Dev key
appId string Apple Application ID (for iOS only)
isDebug boolean false debug mode (optional)
onConversionDataSuccess function AppsFlyer allows you to access the user attribution data in real-time for every new install, directly from the SDK level. By doing this you can serve users with personalized content or send them to specific activities within the app, which can greatly enhance their engagement with your app. For Android; for iOS
onConversionDataFailure function

Example:

var options = {
devKey: 'WdpTVAcYwmxsaQ4WeTspmh',
appId: "975313579",
isDebug: true,
timeToWaitForATTUserAuthorization: 60,
onConversionDataSuccess: function(_res) {
console.log(JSON.stringify(_res));
},
onConversionDataFailure: function(_res) {
console.warn("failure: " + JSON.stringify(_res));
},
};

appsFlyer.initSdk(options).then(function(result) {
viewModel.set("initSdkResponse", result.status);
}, function(err) {
viewModel.set("initSdkResponse", JSON.stringify(err));
});

##### appsFlyer.logEvent(options): Promise<any>

  • These in-app events help you measure how loyal users discover your app, and attribute them to specific campaigns/media-sources. Please take the time define the event/s you want to measure to allow you to measure the ROI (Return on Investment) and LTV (Lifetime Value).
  • The logEvent method allows you to send in-app events to AppsFlyer analytics. This method allows you to add events dynamically by adding them directly to the application code.
parameter type description
options Object log event configuration

options

parameter type description
eventName string custom event name, is presented in your dashboard. See the Event list HERE
eventValues Object event details (see example bellow)

Example: (native javascript)

var options = {
eventName: "af_add_to_cart",
eventValues: {
"af_content_id": "id123",
"af_currency": "USD",
"af_revenue": "2"
}
};
appsFlyer.logEvent(options).then(function(result) {
viewModel.set("logEventResponse", result);
}, function(err) {
viewModel.set("logEventResponse", JSON.stringify(err));
});


Deep Linking

The 3 Deep Linking Types:

Since users may or may not have the mobile app installed, there are 2 types of deep linking:

  1. Deferred Deep Linking - Serving personalized content to new or former users, directly after the installation.
  2. Direct Deep Linking - Directly serving personalized content to existing users, which already have the mobile app installed.
  3. Unified deep linking - Unified deep linking sends new and existing users to a specific in-app activity as soon as the app is opened.

For more info please check out the OneLink™ Deep Linking Guide.

1. Deferred Deep Linking (Get Conversion Data)

Handle the Deferred deeplink in the following callback:

var options = {
onConversionDataSuccess: function(_res) {
console.log("Get conversion data success: " + JSON.stringify(_res));
},
}

Check out the deferred deeplinkg guide from the AppFlyer knowledge base here

2. Direct Deeplinking

Handle the Direct deeplink in the 'onAppOpenAttribution' callback:

var options = {
devKey: 'devKey',
appId: "appId",
isDebug: true,
onAppOpenAttribution: function(_res) {
console.log("onAppOpenAttribution: " + JSON.stringify(_res));
},
onAppOpenAttributionFailure: function(_res) {
console.log("onAppOpenAttributionFailure: " + JSON.stringify(_res));
},
};

When a deeplink is clicked on the device the AppsFlyer SDK will return the link in the onAppOpenAttribution method.

3. Unified deep linking

Handle the Unified deeplink in the 'onDeepLinking' callback (if onDeepLinking callback is define, onAppOpenAttribution won't be called):

var options = {
devKey: 'devKey',
appId: "appId",
isDebug: true,
onDeepLinking: function(_res) {
console.log("onDeepLinking: " + JSON.parse(_res))
},
};

Android Deeplink Setup

URI Scheme

In your app’s manifest add the following intent-filter to your relevant activity:

<intent-filter>
<action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.BROWSABLE" />
<data android:scheme="your unique scheme" />
</intent-filter>

NOTE: On Android, AppsFlyer SDK inspects activity intent object during onResume(). Because of that, for each activity that may be configured or launched with any non-standard launch mode the following code was added to MainActivity.java in android/app/src/main/java/com...

Java:

@Override
public void onNewIntent(Intent intent) {
super.onNewIntent(intent);
setIntent(intent);
}

Kotlin:

override fun onNewIntent(intent : Intent){
super.onNewIntent(intent)
setIntent(intent)
}

App Links

In your app’s manifest add the following intent-filter to your relevant activity:

<intent-filter android:autoVerify="true">
<action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.BROWSABLE" />
<data android:scheme="your unique scheme" />
<data android:scheme="https"
android:host="yourcompany.onelink.me"
android:pathPrefix="your path prefix" />

</intent-filter>

iOS Deeplink Setup

URI Scheme

  1. Create custom app delegate

  2. Add the following iOS method and AppsFlyer API

@NativeClass()
export class CustomAppDelegate extends UIResponder, ATTrackingManager implements UIApplicationDelegate {
public static ObjCProtocols = [UIApplicationDelegate];

applicationOpenURLOptions(application: UIApplication, urlOptions: NSURL, options: NSDictionary<string, any>): boolean {
console.log("applicationOpenURLOptions");
AppsFlyerLib.shared().handleOpenUrlOptions(urlOptions, options);
return true;
}

// Open URI-scheme for iOS 8 and below
applicationOpenURLSourceApplicationAnnotation(application: UIApplication, url: NSURL, sourceApplication: string, annotation: any): boolean {
console.log("applicationOpenURLSourceApplicationAnnotation");
AppsFlyerLib.shared().handleOpenURLSourceApplicationWithAnnotation(url, sourceApplication, annotation);
return true;
}
};

For more on URI-schemes check out the guide here

Universal Links

  1. Create custom app delegate

  2. Add the following iOS method and AppsFlyer API

@NativeClass()
export class CustomAppDelegate extends UIResponder, ATTrackingManager implements UIApplicationDelegate{
public static ObjCProtocols = [UIApplicationDelegate];

// Open Universal Links
applicationContinueUserActivityRestorationHandler?(application: UIApplication, userActivity: NSUserActivity, restorationHandler: (p1: NSArray<UIUserActivityRestoring>) => void): boolean{
console.log("applicationContinueUserActivityRestorationHandler");
AppsFlyerLib.shared().continueUserActivityRestorationHandler(userActivity, restorationHandler);
return true;
}
};

More on Universal Links: Essentially, the Universal Links method links between an iOS mobile app and an associate website/domain, such as AppsFlyer’s OneLink domain (xxx.onelink.me). To do so, it is required to:

  1. Get your SHA256 fingerprint:

    a. Creating A Keystore

    b. Generate Fingerprint

  2. Configure OneLink sub-domain and link to mobile app in the AppsFlyer onelink setup on your dashboard, add the fingerprint there (AppsFlyer takes care of hosting the ‘apple-app-site-association’ file)

  3. Configure the mobile app to register approved domains:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<dict>
<key>com.apple.developer.associated-domains</key>
<array>
<string>applinks:test.onelink.me</string>
</array>
</dict>
</plist>

Set plugin for IOS 14

  1. Add a custom App Delegate and inside add the ATT consent dialog for IDFA collection:
@NativeClass()
export class CustomAppDelegate extends UIResponder, ATTrackingManager implements UIApplicationDelegate{
public static ObjCProtocols = [UIApplicationDelegate];

applicationDidFinishLaunchingWithOptions(application: UIApplication, launchOptions: NSDictionary): boolean {
if (parseFloat(UIDevice.currentDevice.systemVersion) >= 14) {
console.log("iOS 14");
ATTrackingManager.requestTrackingAuthorizationWithCompletionHandler((status) => {

});
}
console.log("applicationDidFinishLaunchingWithOptions");
}

};
  1. In the app.ts add:
import { CustomAppDelegate } from "./custom-app-delegate";

if (Application.ios) {
Application.ios.delegate = CustomAppDelegate;
}
  1. Add Privacy - Tracking Usage Description inside your .plist file in Xcode.

  2. Optional: Set the timeToWaitForATTUserAuthorization property in the options to delay the sdk initazliation for a number of x seconds until the user accept the consent dialog:

var options = {
devKey: 'WdpTVAcYwmxsaQ4WeTspmh',
appId: "975313579",
isDebug: true,
timeToWaitForATTUserAuthorization: 60
};

##Sharing filter (GDPR/CCPA COMPLIANT - Read more information in the following article

In some cases, advertisers may want to stop sharing user-level data with ad networks/partners for specific users. Reasons for this include: Privacy policies such as CCPA or GDPR User opt-out mechanisms Competition with some partners (ad networks, 3rd parties) AppsFlyer provides two API methods to stop sharing data with some or all partners:

##### appsFlyer.setSharingFilter(partners): Promise<any>

  • setSharingFilter: Used by advertisers to set some (one or more) networks/integrated partners to exclude from getting data.
parameter type description
partners Array Exclude (one or more) networks/integrated partners from getting data

Example: (native javascript)

var partners = [""];

appsFlyer.setSharingFilter(partners).then(function(result) {
viewModel.set("setSharingFilterResponse", result.status);
}, function(err) {
viewModel.set("setSharingFilter Response", JSON.stringify(err));
});

##### appsFlyer.setSharingFilterForAllPartners(): Promise<any>

  • setSharingFilterForAllPartners: Used by advertisers to exclude all networks/integrated partners from getting data.

Example: (native javascript)

appsFlyer.setSharingFilterForAllPartners().then(function(result) {
viewModel.set("setSharingFilterForAllPartners", result.status);
}, function(err) {
viewModel.set("setSharingFilterForAllPartners Response", JSON.stringify(err));
});
