AppsFlyer Data Connector

Learn how Singular pulls data from AppsFlyer and shows it in your reports.

 

Quick Details

Data Connector Technology API (AppsFlyer Pull API; Master API and Cohort API if available)
Data breakdown (segmentation)

The data is available in the following breakdowns:

  • App
  • Campaign
  • Country
  • Agency
  • Sub-Campaign ("Ad Set") - only available for Facebook campaigns
  • Creative ("Ad") - only available for Facebook campaigns
Time zone UTC by default, but can be changed in the AppsFlyer dashboard. Singular identifies the time zone and pulls the data properly
Currency USD by default, but can be changed per app in the AppsFlyer dashboard. Singular identifies the currency and pulls the data properly
Known Limitations/ Issues

If you don't have access to AppsFlyer's Master API: 

  • Harsh rate limit (if you have a large number of apps you may experience delays getting your daily data)

If you don't have access to AppsFlyer's Cohort API:

  • No cohort data or SKAdNetwork data.

If you have access to both:

  • Cohort data and SKAdNetwork data are available but usually delayed by two days. This is because the Master API does not provide data for the past two days. Therefore, Singular uses a combination of queries: we use the Pull API for today and yesterday, and the Master API for previous days. Singular checks with AppsFlyer, and if cohort data is available before two days have passed, Singular shows it to you.

Note: The Cohort API is a premium feature that must be explicitly enabled by AppsFlyer. The Pull API and Master API are represented by the V1 auth token, while the Cohort API has a second auth token called the V2 token. If you have access to the Master API and Cohort API, add your tokens to the data connector in the Singular app.

Data Mapping

Tips:

  • The revenue metric is only available for cohorts (see What are cohort metrics?).
  • The agency (partner) and sub ad network (channel) breakdowns are not available for cohorts. This means that if you run a report with agency or sub ad network breakdown, revenue data will not be available.
  • For descriptions of each field in Singular reporting, see the Singular Metrics and Dimensions Glossary.
