Bulletin: Additional parameters available for deep linking existing users

What's new

AppsFlyer SDK V6.6+ allows UDL method to return additional parameters for deep linking existing users (with the app installed).

Effective date April 27, 2022
Where UDL method for deep linking existing users with the app installed
What

Before the change: UDL method only returned deep_link_value and deep_link_sub1-10 parameters for deep linking existing users.

After the change: UDL method returns additional parameters for deep linking existing users (with the app installed):

  • path
  • scheme
  • host
  • af_c_id
  • af_adset
  • af_adset_id
  • af_ad
  • af_ad_id
  • af_ad_type
  • af_channel
  • af_dp
  • esp_name
  • link
What you must know

Best practice: Even though these parameters are available for deep linking existing users, we recommend you create new links using only deep_link_value and deep_link_sub1-10 parameters, as documented in our deep linking guide.

  • This change is only intended for customers with existing links using legacy methods for deep linking. These customers can now implement the UDL method for deep linking and use these additional parameters to deep link existing users, while continuing to use the same links. New links don't have to be created.
