Branch Data Connector

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

Note: Due to Branch's requirements, you have to add a separate Branch data connector in Singular for each of your apps.

 

Quick Details

Data Connector Technology API (Branch Query API + Branch Cohort Exports)
Data breakdown (segmentation)

The data is broken down by:

  • Source (ad network)
  • Campaign
  • OS
  • Country

The following additional breakdowns are only available for campaigns from Self-Attributed Networks (SANs):

  • Sub Ad Network (e.g. for Facebook - Facebook/Instagram)
  • Sub Campaign (ad set)
Time zone  Configurable per app in the Branch dashboard. Singular identifies the timezone and pulls the data appropriately.
Currency USD
Known Limitations/ Issues

The Branch APIs require separate credentials for each of your apps that is tracked by Branch. For that reason, you have to add a separate Branch data connector in Singular for each of your apps

For more information about setting up data connectors, see the Data Connectors FAQ.

Data Mapping

The data connector pulls the following fields from Branch.

Note:

  • Singular uses the Branch Query API to pull stats based on the actual dates, and the Branch Cohort Exports API to pull cohort data. Therefore, the dimensions (breakdowns) available for actual data and for cohorts are slightly different (see table for details).
  • In addition to the default metrics of clicks and installs, Singular can also pull any custom events you configured in Branch. To learn how to display aggregated custom event data in your resorts, see the Custom Events FAQ.
