v6 Breaking Changes

We have renamed the following APIs:

trackEvent logEvent
startTracking start
stopTracking stop
isTrackingStopped isStopped
setCustomerIdAndTrack startWithCUID
validateAndTrackInAppPurchase validateAndLogInAppPurchase

And removed the following ones:

  • trackAppLaunch -> no longer needed. See new init guide
  • sendDeepLinkData -> no longer needed

If you have used 1 of the removed APIs, please check the integration guide for the updated instructions

Plugin info

Supported platforms:

  • Android
  • iOS 6+

Based on:

  • iOS AppsFlyerSDK v6.3.2
  • Android AppsFlyerSDK v6.3.2

Built with:

  • SWF-version = 44
  • AIR SDK version =


Download the AppsFlyerAIRExtension.ane file from the bin folder Add the ANE to your project and make sure the IDE is marked to package it.

If the following was not added automatically please add it to the APP_NAME-app.xml:


Special instructions for Android applications:

  • On AppsFlyer's dashboard you will need to add "air." prefix to the package name as this is added automatically by Air. For example - an app with the package name "" , should set the app id on AppsFlyer's Dashboard as "".

  • Add the following permissions to Android Manifest (in the app description APP_NAME-app.xml):

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE"/>
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_WIFI_STATE"/>
<uses-permission android:name="" />
  • Add the following metatag to Android Manifest within the application tag (in the app description APP_NAME-app.xml):
    <meta-data android:name="" android:value="@integer/google_play_services_version" />

As a result, you should see your Manifest like this:


Due to some limitations in the
ADT, after APK is built it is missing some important files.

To add those files (with the help of automated script):

  1. Place into single directory of your choice:
  1. Run ./ and enter requested info when prompted

Here is what the script is doing. In case of any issues you can perform those steps manually:

  1. Decode the apk using apktool. This will create app_name folder.
    apktool d app_name.apk

  2. Download the AppsFlyer SDK jar/aar of the same version that was used in the apk

  3. Extract files a- and b- from the jar (by renaming jar into a zip) and place them into the folder with the decompiled apk to app_name/unknown/com/appsflyer/internal

  4. Edit apktool.yml by adding these lines under unknownFiles: like in the screenshot below:

com/appsflyer/internal/b-: '0'
com/appsflyer/internal/a-: '0'


  1. Build the apk back (will appear under app_name/dist folder)
    apktool b app

  2. Sign the apk
    jarsigner -verbose -sigalg SHA1withRSA -digestalg SHA1 -keystore myKeystore.keystore app_name/dist/app_name.apk myKey

  3. Zipalign the apk (to be able to upload to Google Play)
    zipalign -f -v 4 app_name/dist/app_name.apk app_name/dist/zipalign_app_name.apk

  4. Verify zipalignment
    zipalign -c -v 4 app_name/dist/zipalign_app_name.apk

  5. Your apk zipalign_app_name.apk is ready to use!

Special instructions for iOS applications:

If you use Strict mode ANE, make sure not to call any IDFA related APIs listed below. They are still present in the ActionScript, but will cause an app to crash if invoked.
  • waitForATTUserAuthorization(timeout:int):void;


Import the AppsFlyer Extension into your project:

import AppsFlyerInterface;

Construct the AppsFlyer interface:

private static var appsFlyer:AppsFlyerInterface; 
appsFlyer = new AppsFlyerInterface();

(Optional) If you want to perform deep linking or access AppsFlyer conversion data from the application, register Conversion Listener:


Set the Developer key and iOS app ID and Initialise the SDK:

appsFlyer.appsFlyer.init("DevKey", "iOSAppID");

Initialise session reporting (automatically report app launches and background-to-foreground transitions) with DevKey and iOS app ID:

appsFlyer.start("DevKey", "iOSAppID");


If you don't target iOS as a platform, specifying iOSAppID ID is not required

Deep Linking

Setting up Deep Links in Adobe Air applications

Android: Create an intent-filter in the Android-Manifest.xml containing the required scheme/host/path properties. For additional reading on App-Links in Adobe Air:

iOS: Using URI schemes. For additional reading on URI schemes in iOS:

More on DeepLinks and AppsFlyer: OneLink™ Overview

Receiving Deep Link Callbacks

In order to receive the relevant AppsFlyer information from the deep link used, register the following event listeners:

appsFlyer.addEventListener(AppsFlyerEvent.APP_OPEN_ATTRIBUTION, eventHandler); // success 
appsFlyer.addEventListener(AppsFlyerEvent.ATTRIBUTION_FAILURE, eventHandler); // error 

And handle the response in a corresponding event handler:

private function eventHandler(event:AppsFlyerEvent):void {
	log("AppsFlyer event: " + event.type + "; \nData: " +;

Deferred Deep Links (get Conversion Data)

In order to receive the conversion data for the current install, register the following event listeners:

appsFlyer.addEventListener(AppsFlyerEvent.INSTALL_CONVERSATION_DATA_LOADED, eventHandler); // success
appsFlyer.addEventListener(AppsFlyerEvent.INSTALL_CONVERSATION_FAILED, eventHandler); //error

And handle the response in a corresponding event handler:

private function eventHandler(event:AppsFlyerEvent):void {
	log("AppsFlyer event: " + event.type + "; \nData: " +;

IMEI And Android ID Collection (Android Only)

By default, IMEI and Android ID are not collected by the SDK if the OS version is higher than KitKat (4.4) and the device contains Google Play Services.

To explicitly send these IDs to AppsFlyer, developers can use the following APIs and place it before initialising the SDK.

If the app does NOT contain Google Play Services, the IMEI and Android ID are collected by the SDK. However, apps with Google play services should avoid IMEI collection as this is in violation of the Google Play policy.

Enable / Disable IMEI collection (disabled by default)


Manually setting IMEI Data


Enable / Disable Android ID collection (disabled by default)


Manually setting Android ID Data


API Methods

Logging In-App Events

In-App Events can be logged using the `logEvent("eventName", "eventValue") API. For Example:

var param:String = "Deposit";
var value:String = '{"amount":10, "FTDLevel":"-"}';
appsFlyer.logEvent(param, value);         

Setting App User ID


Setting App User Email


Setting Currency


Stop (Opt-Out)

In some extreme cases you might want to shut down all SDK reporting due to legal and privacy compliance. This can be achieved with the stop() API. Once this API is invoked, our SDK will no longer communicate with our servers and stop functioning.


Enable / Disable AppsFlyer Debug-Logs


Important : do not release the application to the AppStore / Google Play with debug logs enabled.
