This guide will walk you through how to send your Branch data to Airship using Branch Data Integration.
Branch Universal Ads provides everything you need for complete tracking.
The basic integration involves three parts:
- Integrating the SDKs and tracking in-app events
- Enabling the integration and selecting postbacks
- Creating tracking link
Integrating the SDKs and tracking in-app events¶
The Branch SDKs for iOS and Android allow you to get up and running quickly.
If you haven't already integrated Branch SDK into your application, please follow our integration guide to integrate Branch SDK into your application:
Limitations with setDebug and seeing data in Branch
When integrating the SDKs, it's often useful to use setDebug to verify that your app is able to communicate with Branch servers, and is receiving deep link data. However, our upstream systems don't register test events sent using setDebug, so events will not appear in Liveview or Analytics, nor will they fire postbacks. You should disable setDebug when looking at Liveview or testing postbacks.
Enable the integration¶
- Visit the Data Integration on the Branch dashboard.
- Search for your Data Integration Partner
- Select your Data Integration Partner
- Provide the required details
Provide account credentials¶
Enter any credentials that may be required, and click Save and Enable in the bottom right hand corner.
Please ask your ad partner where you can find your credentilas.
Please refer to Airship's documentation if you need instructions on how to find the values required to enable the integration.
