There are two ways to set up integration with AppsFlyer:
- Integration through Integrated Partners Module;
- Integration through Push API method;
Integrated Partners connection is available for all users. However, please remember that you cannot integrate more than one Campaign Group per application via this type of integration.
If some of your apps belong to several Campaign Groups in Apple Search Ads account, you can use Push API method of integration. Please note, that Push API is available only for AppsFlyer Premium Plan. Below you will find instructions how to configure Integrated Partner Module.
Setting up AppsFlyer Integrated Partner Connection:
Log into your AppsFlyer account here https://hq1.appsflyer.com/auth/login.
Once logged in, go to the Dashboard of the app for which you would like to get installs and post-install events in SearchAdsHQ.
Note: if you have a few apps for which you need to receive installs and post-install events, these steps will need to be repeated for each of them.
On the Dashboard scroll down until you see Configuration section on the left bar. Under this section click on Integrated Partners.
Search for Splitmetrics – Apple Search Ads Marketing Partner as shown in the following screenshot. Click Edit button.
You’ll get to SplitMetrics - Apple Search Ads Marketing Partner Integration page.
In order to set up the partner integration first activate the partner.
Then you can fill out General Settings using your:
1. Client ID.
2. Apple Search Ads Campaign Group name. VERY IMPORTANT: Take this name from your Apple Search Ads campaign group in your Apple Search Ads account.
Read below where to get them.
1. Сlient ID.
To find your Client ID go to your SearchAdsHQ dashboard. Click Integrations. On the Integrations page point to AppsFlyer logo until you see View Settings button. Click on it. You’ll see AppsFlyer Integration pop-up.
On the AppsFlyer Partner Integration popup copy Client ID field and paste it to Client ID field in AppsFlyer.
2. Apple Search Ads Campaign Group
To find out your Apple Search Ads Campaign Group name you can check your Apple Search Ads account. Make sure to check Campaign Group name.
Or check SearchAdsHQ. Remember that in SearchAdsHQ your Campaign Group name = Your Ad account. So check where is the app you are connecting. For example - if I would like to transfer installs and in-app events for Clash of Clans App, I will use Campaign Group Name Ad Account2 (because Account in SearchAdsHQ = Campaign Group in ASA).
In AppsFlyer Scroll down to In-App Events, paste your SearchAdsHQ client ID to the client_id field.
Toggle In-App Events Postback ON.
Here you can also select whether the revenue should be sent along with the event. Select the applicable and click Save.
Note, that you need to repeat these steps for every app connected to SearchAdsHQ.
