Other Amplitude + AppsFlyer integrations

This integration sends Amplitude data into AppsFlyer. Amplitude offers two other integrations with AppsFlyer:

Considerations

Keep these things in mind when sending events to AppsFlyer:

  • A user must exist in AppsFlyer to send events for them. Amplitude sends the event data with the user_id, which must match the customer_user_id within AppsFlyer. Make sure that the AppsFlyer customer_user_id and the Amplitude user_id match.
  • Amplitude forwards all event, user, and group properties as key value pairs within eventValue.
  • Amplitude sends the os property. AppsFlyer recommends including it because for iOS apps, if the os property isn't included for iOS apps, AppFlyer records the data as coming from a device running iOS 14.5.
  • Amplitude sends device identifiers if available. See the AppFlyer documentation for more information about what happens if you don't send a device identifier.
  • Amplitude attempts to send the device identifiers listed in the AppFlyer documentation.

Setup

Prerequisites

To complete setup, you need the following information from AppsFlyer:

  • REST API Key: Find this in App Settings > Dev Key.
  • AppsFlyer App ID: The app identifier used in your AppsFlyer dashboard. It also appears in the URL when you are on the dashboard.

There are no other setup steps in AppsFlyer.
