Migrating from Version 3.3.X to 4.3.2 and Higher

At a glance: Considerations for migrating versions of the AppsFlyer Android SDK.

Major changes have been made to the Android SDK integration.

The main changes are:

  • The SDK is now a singleton, meaning that every call to the APIs should be called as follows:
AppsFlyerLib.getInstance().setCustomerUserId("myId");
  • SetAppsFlyerKey()– this method was removed; as a result, we expect to receive the dev key using the new init method: AppsFlyerLib.getInstance().startTracking (this,"YOUR_APPSFLYER_DEV_KEY")
  • sendTracking(), onActivityPause(), onActivityResume() were removed. The SDK detects launches automatically
  • Deep Link - for activities that support deep linking the developer should call:
AppsFlyerLib.getInstance().sendDeepLinkData(this) from the onCreate()

of the displayed activity.

This is necessary only if the app is not running in the background.

  • Logging - The logging flag default value has been changed to false. In addition, if the flag is turned off, no logs are printed (bug fix). To activate the logging flag, the developer should call:
AppsFlyerLib.getInstance().setDebugLog(true);

Migrating to 4.4.0 and higher

The AppsFlyer Android SDK v4.4.0 no longer supports the following receiver in the manifest:

<receiver android:name="com.appsflyer.AppsFlyerLib">
  <intent-filter>
    <action android:name="android.intent.action.PACKAGE_REMOVED"/>
    <data android:scheme="package"/>
  </intent-filter> 
</receiver>

If you are using version 4.4.0+, remove this receiver from your manifest file.

The only mandatory receiver for the SDK is as follows:

<receiver
  android:name="com.appsflyer.MultipleInstallBroadcastReceiver"
  android:exported="true">
    <intent-filter>
      <action android:name="com.android.vending.INSTALL_REFERRER" />
    </intent-filter>
</receiver>
