Cómo configurar los permisos necesarios

Add the following permissions to AndroidManifest.xml in the manifest section:

<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    package=YOUR_PACKAGE_NAME>

      <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
      <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE" />

      ...

</manifest>

The AD_ID permission

In early 2022, Google announced a change to the behavior of Google Play Services and fetching of the Android Advertising ID. According to the announcement, apps targeting Android 13 (API 33) and above must declare a Google Play services normal permission in their AndroidManifest.xml file in order to get access to the device’s Advertising ID.

Starting V6.8.0, the SDK adds the AD_ID permission automatically.

📘

Nota

  • Si tu aplicación participa en el programa Diseñado para Familias:
    • If using SDK V6.8.0 and above, you should Revoke the AD_ID permission.
    • If using SDK older than V6.8.0, don't add this permission to your app.
  • Para las aplicaciones que apuntan al nivel de API 32 (Android 12L) o anterior, este permiso no es necesario.

Apps that use SDK versions older than V6.8.0 and target Android 13 (API 33) and above must manually include the permission in their AndroidManifest.xml to have access to the Advertising ID:

<uses-permission android:name="com.google.android.gms.permission.AD_ID" />

Revocación del permiso AD_ID

De acuerdo con la Política de Google, las aplicaciones dirigidas a niños no deben transmitir el ID de publicidad.

When using SDK V6.8.0 and above, children apps targeting Android 13 (API 33) and above must prevent the permission from getting merged into their app by adding a revoke declaration to their Manifest:

<uses-permission android:name="com.google.android.gms.permission.AD_ID"
 tools:node="remove"/>

Para obtener más información, consulta la documentación de Google Play Services.

Reglas de ProGuard

OPCIONAL
If you are using ProGuard and you encounter a warning regarding our AFKeystoreWrapper class, then add the following code to your proguard-rules.pro file:

Reglas de ProGuard del SDK de AppsFlyer

-keep class com.appsflyer.** { *; }
-keep class kotlin.jvm.internal.** { *; }

Reglas de copia de seguridad

The SDK's AndroidManifest.xml includes rules to opt out of backing up the Shared Preferences data. This is done to avoid retaining the same counters and AppsFlyer ID during reinstallation, thereby preventing the accurate detection of new installs or re-installs.

To merge the SDK backup rules with your app backup rules and to prevent conflicts, perform the following instructions for each use case.

Fix confilict with fullBackupContent=”true”

If you add android:fullBackupContent="true" in the AndroidManifest.xml, you might get the following error:

Manifest merger failed : Attribute application@fullBackupContent value=(true)

To fix this error, add tools:replace="android:fullBackupContent" in the <application> tag in the AndroidManifest.xml file.

Fix conflict with dataExtractionRule=”true”

If you add android:dataExtractionRules="true" in the AndroidManifest.xml, you might get the following error:

Manifest merger failed : Attribute application@dataExtractionRules value=(true)

To fix this error, add tools:replace="android:dataExtractionRules" in the <application> tag in the AndroidManifest.xml file.

Fix conflict with allowBackup=”false”

If you add android:allowBackup="false" in the AndroidManifest.xml, you might get the following error:

Error:
	Attribute application@allowBackup value=(false) from AndroidManifest.xml:
	is also present at [com.appsflyer:af-android-sdk:6.14.0] AndroidManifest.xml: value=(true).
	Suggestion: add 'tools:replace="android:allowBackup"' to <application> element at AndroidManifest.xml to override.

To fix this error, add tools:replace="android:allowBackup” in the <application> tag in the AndroidManifest.xml file.

Merge backup rules in Android 12 and above

If you’re targeting Android 12 and above, and you have your own backup rules specified (android:dataExtractionRules="@xml/my_rules"), in addition to the instructions above, please merge your back rules with the AppsFlyer rules manually by adding the following rule:

<data-extraction-rules>
    <cloud-backup>
        <exclude domain="sharedpref" path="appsflyer-data"/>
    </cloud-backup>
    <device-transfer>
        <exclude domain="sharedpref" path="appsflyer-data"/>
    </device-transfer>
</data-extraction-rules>

Merge backup rules in Android 11 and below

If you’re also targeting Android 11 and lower, and you have your own backup rules specified (android:fullBackupContent="@xml/my_rules"), in addition to the instructions above, please merge your backup rules with the AppsFlyer rules manually by adding the following rule:

<full-backup-content>
    ...//your custom rules
    <exclude domain="sharedpref" path="appsflyer-data"/>
</full-backup-content>

Agregar bibliotecas de referentes de tiendas

El SDK de AppsFlyer admite varias bibliotecas de referentes de tiendas. El uso de un referente de tienda mejora la precisión de la atribución.

Solo necesitas agregar la dependencia del referente, el SDK se encarga del resto.

Google Play Install Referrer

Add the following dependency to your build.gradle:

dependencies {
    // ...
    implementation "com.android.installreferrer:installreferrer:2.2"
}

Reglas de ProGuard del referente de instalación de Google Play

-keep public class com.android.installreferrer.** { *; }

Meta Install Referrer

Meta install referrer allows AppsFlyer to receive ad campaign metadata from a device’s local storage.

Meta Install Referrer basic flow

The basic flow of the Meta install referrer mechanism is as follows:

  1. Once the SDK initializes, it uses the app's Facebook App ID to make a request to the Meta Content Provider API, retrieving the stored metadata from the Facebook app.
  2. AppsFlyer SDK sends the install event, along with the attribution data, to the AppsFlyer servers.

Requisitos previos

To support the Meta install referrer, the following is required:

  • SDK: Integrate with Android SDK version 6.12.6 or higher.
  • Facebook App Version: Users must have version 428.x.x or above installed on their device.
  • Instagram App Version: Users must have version 296.x.x or above installed on their device.

Configure Meta Install Referrer Support

To enable Meta install referrer support make the Facebook App ID available to the SDK by adding it to the AndroidManifest.xml. This can be done either when integrating the Facebook SDK with the app or when integrating the AppsFlyer SDK with the app.

With Facebook SDK integrated

Refer to Facebook’s official guide to learn how to add the Facebook App ID to AndroidManifest.xml. The SDK will read the Facebook App ID from the meta-data .

Without Facebook SDK integration

Include the following tag in AndroidManifest.xml 

<meta-data android:name="com.appsflyer.FacebookApplicationId" android:value="@string/facebook_application_id" />

Include in your strings.xml file:

<string name="facebook_application_id" translatable="false"><YOUR_FACEBOOK_APP_ID></string>

Huawei Install Referrer

Huawei Referrer is supported in SDK v6.14.0 and above.
Due to changes in the Huawei AppGallery store, previous versions of the AppsFlyer SDK are not able to fetch the referrer from the store.

Add the following repository to your Project's build.gradle:

repositories {
    //...
    maven { url 'https://developer.huawei.com/repo/' }
}

Add the following dependency in the app's build.gradle:

dependencies {
    // ...
    implementation 'com.huawei.hms:componentverifysdk:13.3.1.301'
}

Xiaomi GetApps store referrer

V6.9.0
Add the following dependency to your build.gradle:

dependencies {
  // ...
  implementation "com.miui.referrer:homereferrer:1.0.0.6"
}

Reglas de ProGuard para referentes de la tienda Xiaomi GetApps

-keep public class com.miui.referrer.** {*;}

📘

Nota

Samsung store referrer is supported out-of-the-box starting SDK V6.1.1 and does not require any additional integration.

Problemas conocidos

Missing resource files

SDK V5
If you are using Android SDK V5 and above, make sure that in the APK file, in addition to the classes.dex and resources files, you also have a com > appsflyer > internal folder with files a- and b- inside.
Note: Before SDK 5.3.0, file names are a. and b.

Verifica que tienes los archivos necesarios abriendo tu APK en Android Studio:

Si faltan esos archivos, el SDK no puede realizar solicitudes de red a nuestro servidor, y deberás comunicarte con tu CSM o con el soporte.

Boot Complete

If your app listens for LOCKED_BOOT_COMPLETED, make sure that all interactions with the SDK are initiated from the launcher activity. This precaution prevents the SDK from crashing when attempting to access SharedPreferences on a device that is still locked.
