[Must do] Initialize the SDK

Support SDK for Android / iOS

export interface InitConfig {

clientId: string;
userLocale?: string;
/** AnonUserIdentity object or JWT Token string */
identity?: AnonUserIdentity | string;
import { ZendeskSdk } from "nativescript-zendesk-sdk";
const initConfig = {

If identity: null a new anonymous identity is created, but if identity is undefined it must be set later, but before launching any Zendesk views/activities.

Note: applicationId, zendeskUrl, and clientId must be specified when initializing the Zendesk, but locale, COPPA-compliance mode, and Identity can be set/changed later.

[Must do] Set an identity (authentication)

Simple Styling

Zendesk offers 3 base themes that can be used or extended:

  • ZendeskSdkTheme.Light
  • ZendeskSdkTheme.Dark
  • ZendeskSdkTheme.Light
Example extending PnpZendeskSdkTheme.DarkActionBar

import { isIOS } from 'tns-core-modules/platform';


if ( isIOS ) {
UINavigationBar.appearance().tintColor = new Color('#00FFFF').ios;
UINavigationBar.appearance().barTintColor = new Color('#FF00FF').ios;
UINavigationBar.appearance().titleTextAttributes =
<NSDictionary<string, any>>NSDictionary.dictionaryWithObjectForKey(
new Color('#FFFF00').ios,

const iOSTheme: ZendeskIosThemeSimple = {
primaryColor: '#FF0000',

The first 3 colors are used primarily on the ActionBar/StatusBar for the "new ticket" screen, as the Help Center uses the default ActionBar/StatusBar colors from the regular NativeScript setup.

These settings could affect the whole app, but are ignored by the regular NativeScript Views, but could potentially impact other 3rd part views. Likely you will set these to be the same as what is used in the rest of the app.

The settings within the theme object will only affect the Zendesk.
