@innomobile/attribution - Appsflyer and Branch.io

  • Integrate Appsflyer
  • Integrate Branch.io


Install the package:

npm i @innomobile/attribution

Install peer dependencies

You have to install the following packages:

  • @ionic/angular: ^4.0.0 || >= 4.0.0-beta.6
  • cordova-plugin-x-socialsharing: ^5.4.0,
  • @ionic-native/social-sharing: ^5.0.0 || >= 5.0.0-beta.18
  • branch-cordova-sdk: ^3.0.0
  • @ionic-native/branch-io: ^5.0.0 || >= 5.0.0-beta.18
  • cordova-plugin-appsflyer-sdk: ^4.4.0
  • @ionic-native/appsflyer: ^5.0.0 || >= 5.0.0-beta.18

Add to your app.module.ts

    import { AttributionModule } from '@innomobile/attribution';

    AttributionModule.forRoot(appsflyerConfig, branchConfig),

The appsflyerConfig contains the devKey, you find at Appsflyer and the AppId (ID of your app in the App Store)

export const appsflyerConfig = {
    devKey: '', // From appsflyer.com
    appId: '', // iOS only

This is your branchConfig:

export const branchConfig = {
  debug: false, // optional
  branchKey: '', // From branch.io

Initialize Appsflyer and Branch.io

I recommend to initialize Appsflyer and Branch.io in your app.component.ts. For Branch, a BranchHandleService is good use case (see below). For Appsflyer, add private appslfyer: AppsflyerService to your constructor and after the platform is ready, add this.appsflyer.init().

Additional information

Appsflyer is Android and iOS only. Branch.io is ready for Android, iOS and Web! See use cases for the implementation!

Use Cases

Add Branch.io for Web / PWA

@innomobile/attribution has out-of-the-box support for a PWA / Web implementation of Branch.io. Just add the Branch JavaScript to your index.html (more information on https://github.com/BranchMetrics/web-branch-deep-linking):

  <script type="text/javascript">
    (function (b, r, a, n, c, h, _, s, d, k) { if (!b[n] || !b[n]._q) { for (; s < _.length;)c(h, _[s++]); d = r.createElement(a); d.async = 1; d.src = "assets/scripts/branch-latest.min.js"; k = r.getElementsByTagName(a)[0]; k.parentNode.insertBefore(d, k); b[n] = h } })(window, document, "script", "branch", function (b, r) { b[r] = function () { b._q.push([r, arguments]) } }, { _q: [], _v: 1 }, "addListener applyCode autoAppIndex banner closeBanner closeJourney creditHistory credits data deepview deepviewCta first getCode init link logout redeem referrals removeListener sendSMS setBranchViewData setIdentity track validateCode trackCommerceEvent logEvent disableTracking getBrowserFingerprintId".split(" "), 0);

In this case you have to add the branch-latest.min.js to this directory: assets/scripts/branch-latest.min.js. You can also use a CDN or other website. Just change the src!

Create a Branch Handle Service

I recommend that you create a branch-handle.service.ts to handle all Branch.io related

In your app.component.ts add:

import { Platform } from '@ionic/angular';
import { BranchHandleService } from './services/branch-handle.service';

    private platform: Platform,
    private branchHandler: BranchHandleService,
) {

async initializeApp() {
    await this.platform.ready();

The BranchHandleService could be like

import { Injectable } from '@angular/core';
import { BranchService } from '@innomobile/attribution';

    providedIn: 'root'
export class BranchHandleService {
        private branch: BranchService,
    ) {

    async init() {
        try {
            const branchData = await this.branch.initSession();
        } catch (error) {
            console.log('[BRANCH] ERROR', error);

    checkData(data) {
        /* Example of deep link data of Branch.io */
        data = {
            '~creation_source': 5,
            '+click_timestamp': 1541443185,
            '$identity_id': '588028323188499933',
            'userId': 'asfsaf',
            '+clicked_branch_link': true,
            '$one_time_use': false,
            '~id': '588051199941949836',
            '~campaign': 'Invite',
            '$canonical_url': 'http://localhost:4200/63cc1d35',
            '+is_first_session': true,
            '~referring_link': 'https://xyz.app.link/ARMy3izrBR',
            '~channel': 'viral',
        // read deep link data
        console.log('[BRANCH] Deep Link Data: ', data);
        if (!data) {
        if (data['+clicked_branch_link']) {
            // Add your code here

     * Set User Id
    setIdentity(userId) {


As described in "Add Branch.io for Web / PWA" you only need this.branch.initSession(); - based on the platform (Android, iOS, Web) it will handle the session correctly!

Overview methods

initSession(): Promise<BranchIoPromise>;
getSession(): Promise<BranchIoPromise>;
setIdentity(userId: any): Promise<any>;
shareLink(options: BranchShareOptions): Promise<any>;
share(subject: string, message: string, analytics: BranchIoAnalytics, properties: BranchIoProperties): Promise<void>;
