Conversion data

In this guide you will learn how to get conversion data using the iOS SDK, as well as usage examples.

Before you begin

Getting conversion data requires you first integrate the SDK.

Getting conversion data in iOS SDK

#import "AppDelegate.h"
#import <AppsFlyerLib/AppsFlyerLib.h>

@interface AppDelegate ()
@end
@implementation AppDelegate
    // ...
    -(void)onConversionDataSuccess:(NSDictionary*) installData {
    // Invoked when conversion data resolution succeeds
}
-(void)onConversionDataFail:(NSError *) error {
    // Invoked when conversion data resolution fails
    NSLog(@"%@",error);
}
// ...
@end
import UIKit
import AppsFlyerLib
@UIApplicationMain
class AppDelegate: UIResponder, UIApplicationDelegate, AppsFlyerLibDelegate {
    // ...
    func onConversionDataSuccess(_ installData: [AnyHashable: Any]) {
        // Invoked when conversion data resolution succeeds
    }

    func onConversionDataFail(_ error: Error!) {
        // Invoked when conversion data resolution fails
    }
    // ...
}

onConversionDataSuccess

onConversionDataSuccess is implemented in AppsFlyerLibDelegate.
The onConversionDataSuccess method is invoked whenever:

  • A user opens the app
  • A user moves the app to the foreground

When invoked, onConversionDataSuccess returns a NSDictionary (called installData in the example) that contains attribution data for that install. installData is cached the first time onConversionDataSuccess is called and will be identical on consecutive calls.

onConversionDataFail

onConversionDataFail is implemented in AppsFlyerLibDelegate.
If for whatever reason the SDK fails to fetch the conversion data, onConversionDataFail is invoked.

Accessing attribution data

You can get the conversion type by checking the value of af_status in onConversionDataSuccess's payload. It can be one of the following values:

  • Organic
  • Non-organic

Example

Following is an example implementation:

#import "AppDelegate.h"
#import <AppsFlyerLib/AppsFlyerLib.h>
#import <UserNotifications/UserNotifications.h>
@interface AppDelegate ()
@end
@implementation AppDelegate
    // ...
-(void)onConversionDataSuccess:(NSDictionary*) installData {
    // Business logic for Non-organic install scenario is invoked
    id status = [installData objectForKey:@"af_status"];
    if([status isEqualToString:@"Non-organic"]) {
        id sourceID = [installData objectForKey:@"media_source"];
        id campaign = [installData objectForKey:@"campaign"];
        NSLog(@"This is a Non-organic install. Media source: %@  Campaign: %@",sourceID,campaign);
    }

    else if([status isEqualToString:@"Organic"]) {
        // Business logic for Organic install scenario is invoked
        NSLog(@"This is an Organic install.");
    }

}
-(void)onConversionDataFail:(NSError *) error {
    NSLog(@"%@",error);
}
// ...
@end
import UIKit
import AppsFlyerLib
@UIApplicationMain
class AppDelegate: UIResponder, UIApplicationDelegate, AppsFlyerLibDelegate {
    // ...
    func onConversionDataSuccess(_ installData: [AnyHashable: Any]) {
        if let status = installData["af_status"] as? String {
            if (status == "Non-organic") {
                // Business logic for Non-organic install scenario is invoked
                if let sourceID = installData["media_source"],
                let campaign = installData["campaign"] {
                    print("This is a Non-organic install. Media source: \(sourceID)  Campaign: \(campaign)")
                }
            }
            else {
                // Business logic for organic install scenario is invoked
            }
        }
    }

    func onConversionDataFail(_ error: Error!) {
        // Logic for when conversion data resolution fails
        if let err = error{
            print(err)
        }
    }
}

Deferred deep linking (Legacy method)

When the app is opened via deferred deep linking, onConversionDataSuccess's payload returns deep linking data, as well as attribution data.
