Some media sources (e.g., Facebook, Snapchat) restrict sharing data with 3rd parties. AppsFlyer cannot share user level data of users acquired through these media sources with 3rd party platforms or services. All installs from these media sources are therefore sent as organic. Currently, Braze doesn't internally use organic users data.
Follow the instructions below to configure the integration with Braze.
Minimum requirements - AppsFlyer SDK:
On Android, integrating with Braze requires that the Braze Device ID (Braze's unique user identifier) is populated in AppsFlyer's Android SDK. This parameter is sent with every postback and enables the identification of each user. To perform this you must insert the following strings to your app code:
Make sure the lines of code are inserted at the correct place – after Braze SDK was launched and before the initialization code for AppsFlyer’s SDK (refer to the Initializing the SDK section in our Android SDK Integration Guide).
HashMap<String, Object> customData = new HashMap<String,Object>(); String deviceId =(Braze.getInstance(MyActivity.this).getInstallTrackingId()); customData.put("brazeCustomerId", deviceId); AppsFlyerLib.setAdditionalData(customData);
Braze’s SDK must have IDFA collection enabled. For details of how to do this, click here.
- Copy the API key from Braze’s dashboard (available under App Settings > 3rd Party Integrations > Attribution
Appboy.AppboyBinding.GetInstallTrackingId() Dictionary<string, string> customData = new Dictionary<string, string>(); customData.Add("brazeCustomerId", Appboy.AppboyBinding.GetInstallTrackingId()); AppsFlyer.setAdditionalData(customData);
Setting Up Braze
Go to the dashboard of your app and click on Integrated Partners on the left bar.
Enter "Braze" in the search field and click on its logo to open the Braze configuration window.

The Integration Tab is divided into different sections as described below.
Braze connects with AppsFlyer via a unique API Key and REST Endpoint. If you don't already have it, you must obtain it from Braze to continue with the integration or follow the steps below.
- Insert the Braze API_Key copied in the prior step from Braze’s dashboard under App Settings >> 3rd Party Integrations >> Attribution
- Insert the Braze Rest Endpoint URL (from the previous step) in the REST_endpoint field.
- Click Save & Close
Once you have saved the configuration, AppsFlyer sends the following data to Braze for every organic and non-organic install:
- Braze Dev_ID
- Media Source
- Campaign name
- Adgroup name
- Ad name
AppsFlyer can send automatic postbacks to Braze user installs. Use this section to define sending these postbacks.
