Deferred Deep Linking

Getting Started

To use Deferred Deep Links and/or Web-to-App banners, you need to enable the messaging feature for your app. You then need to configure three things:

  1. The subdomain you want to use for your Deferred Deep Links? E.g. cloudburger.lnk.click
  2. The URLs for your app listing in the App Store and Play Store (if your app is not installed)
  3. iOS and Android platform specific settings (so the operating system will open your app)

Select your app, expand 'Messaging', click 'Configuration' and then the 'Deep Linking' tab to start.

Subdomain

Enter the subdomain (of the lnk.click domain) that you want to use for your Deferred Deep Links. This must match the domain you set in the Associated Domains capability in your Xcode project.

Platform Settings

iOS

To use Deferred Deep Links with your iOS app, toggle the switch next to iOS Config on. Enter the URL to your app in the App Store, the Bundle ID for your app and your Apple Developer Account Team ID (which can be found in the Apple Membership Section).

iOS Config

Android

To use Deferred Deep Links with your Android app, toggle the switch next to Android Config on. Enter the URL to your app in the Play Store, the Package for your app and the colon separated, SHA256 signing certificate fingerprint(s).

Android Config

Huawei

To use Deferred Deep Links with your Android app distributed via the Huawei App Gallery for HCM devices sign into your AG Connect account and select My Projects, then select the Project containing the app you want to link to.

In the left menu under 'Grow' select the 'App Linking' feature, click 'Enable now' in the top panel, then once the screen refreshes, select the 'URL prefixes' tab. This will allow you to select the subdomain prefix to be used to identify your app, click 'New URL prefix' and enter the subdomain you would like in the form. It is recommended that you match the subdomain used for Kumulos iOS / Android deep links with the AG connect subdomain, if available. Once you have verified the link you will have an app gallery link of the format [subdomain].dre.agconnect.link.

Return to the Kumulos console and toggle the switch next to App Gallery Config on. Enter the AG connect prefix along with the URL to your app in the App Gallery.

Huawei Config

Click 'Configure' once done.

SDK Integration

Now follow the instructions in the iOS and Android SDK integration guides to implement deferred deep linking in your app.

Website Integration

In order to use Web-to-App banners you must also integrate the Kumulos Web SDK to your website.
