At a glance: Leanplum, an AppsFlyer integrated partner, is a mobile marketing platform, designed for intelligent action. Its integrated solution delivers engagement across messaging and the in-app experience. Leanplum offers Messaging, Automation, App Editing, Personalization, A/B Testing, and Analytics.
Some media sources 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 such media sources are therefore sent as organic.

Setting up Leanplum
Leanplum customers can integrate with AppsFlyer by sending Leanplum a postback containing publisher information. This allows you to view this data in Leanplum analytics as well as use it for targeting in A/B tests or marketing campaigns, using Leanplum’s targeting and segmentation menu.
Before you activate the integration with AppsFlyer, you first must confirm that your Leanplum integration is using the same device ID as Appsflyer. This is important as Leanplum matches the user install with the postback using the device ID, so if they do not match Leanplum cannot report the data.
By default, Leanplum collects the IDFV for iOS and the MD5 hash of the MAC address for Android, but this can be easily changed to IDFA for iOS and GAID for Android with one line of code. For information about how to change the device ID format for Android and iOS, click here.
The setup is done from the Integrated Partners page, but to find the partner you must first go to the marketplace.
