Summary

This is the Cordova SDK of adjust™. You can read more about adjust™ at adjust.com.

Basic Installation

These are the minimal steps required to integrate the adjust SDK into your Cordova project. We are going to assume the command line interface is used.

1. Get the SDK

Download the latest version from our releases page. Extract the zip file in a folder of your choice.

2. Add the SDK to your project

After you added iOS and/or Android as a platform for your project, enter the following command in your project folder:

> cordova plugin add path_to_folder/cordova_sdk
Installing com.adjust.sdk (android)
Installing com.adjust.sdk (ios)

3. Integrate with your app

The adjust plugin automatically registers with the cordova events deviceready, resume and pause. To configure the parameters of your app to adjust, follow these steps:

  1. Open the file plugins/com.adjust.sdk/config/adjust.json.
  2. Replace the appToken value with the App Token that you can find in your dashboard.
  3. Copy the the adjust hook folder plugins/com.adjust.sdk/hooks to the root of your project. It contains the script to replace the configuration values from the adjust.json file.
  4. There should be a new file hooks/after_prepare/replace_adjust.js located at the root of your project. Check if this file has execute permission and add the permission if needed.

Depending on whether or not you build your app for testing or for production you must set the key environment with one of these values:

    "environment" : "sandbox"
    "environment" : "production"

Important: This value should be set to sandbox if and only if you or someone else is testing your app. Make sure to set the environment to production just before you publish the app. Set it back to sandbox when you start testing it again.

We use this environment to distinguish between real traffic and artificial traffic from test devices. It is very important that you keep this value meaningful at all times! Especially if you are tracking revenue.

You can increase or decrease the amount of logs you see by setting the key logLevel with one of the following values:

    "logLevel" : "verbose" // enable all logging
    "logLevel" : "debug"   // enable more logging
    "logLevel" : "info"    // the default
    "logLevel" : "warn"    // disable info logging
    "logLevel" : "error"   // disable warnings as well
    "logLevel" : "assert"  // disable errors as well

If your app makes heavy use of event tracking, you might want to delay some HTTP requests in order to send them in one batch every minute. You can enable event buffering by setting the key enableEventBuffering to true.

It's possible to have different configuration values in the adjust.json file depending on the target platform. Just add the suffix _ios or _android to the key for the target platform iOS or Android respectively. For example, it's possible to have appToken_android for Android and appToken_ios for the iOs target.

Additional Features

Once you integrated the adjust SDK into your project, you can take advantage of the following features.

4. Add tracking of custom events.

You can tell adjust about every event you want. Suppose you want to track every tap on a button. You would have to create a new Event Token in your dashboard. Let's say that Event Token is abc123. In your button's click event function you could then add the following line to track the click:

Adjust.trackEvent('abc123');

You can also register a callback URL for that event in your dashboard and we will send a GET request to that URL whenever the event gets tracked. In that case you can also put some key-value-pairs in a dictionary and pass it to the trackEvent function. We will then append these named parameters to your callback URL.

For example, suppose you have registered the URL http://www.adjust.com/callback for your event with Event Token abc123 and execute the following lines:

var parameters = { 'key' : 'value', 'foo' : 'bar' };
Adjust.trackEvent('abc1234', parameters);

In that case we would track the event and send a request to:

http://www.adjust.com/callback?key=value&foo=bar

It should be mentioned that we support a variety of placeholders like {idfa} for iOS or {android_id} for Android that can be used as parameter values. In the resulting callback the {idfa} placeholder would be replaced with the ID for Advertisers of the current device for iOS and the {android_id} would be replaced with the AndroidID of the current device for Android. Also note that we don't store any of your custom parameters, but only append them to your callbacks. If you haven't registered a callback for an event, these parameters won't even be read.

5. Add tracking of revenue

If your users can generate revenue by clicking on advertisements or making in-app purchases you can track those revenues. If, for example, a click is worth one cent, you could make the following call to track that revenue:

Adjust.trackRevenue(1.0);

The parameter is supposed to be in cents and will get rounded to one decimal point. If you want to differentiate between different kinds of revenue you can get different Event Tokens for each kind. Again, you need to create those Event Tokens in your dashboard. In that case you would make a call like this:

Adjust.trackRevenue(1.0, 'abc123');

Again, you can register a callback and provide a dictionary of named parameters, just like it worked with normal events.

var parameters = { 'key' : 'value', 'foo' : 'bar' };
Adjust.trackRevenue(1.0, 'abc1234', parameters);

6. Receive delegate callbacks

Every time your app tries to track a session, an event or some revenue, you can be notified about the success of that operation and receive additional information about the current install. For that you can pass a javascript callback function that receives one argument to the setFinishedTrackingCallback, such as:

Adjust.setFinishedTrackingCallback(function (responseData) { });

The callback function will get called every time any activity was tracked or failed to track. Within the callback function you have access to the responseData object parameter. Here is a quick summary of its attributes:

  • activityKind indicates what kind of activity was tracked. Returns one of these values:

    session
    event
    revenue
    reattribution
    
  • success indicates whether or not the tracking attempt was successful. Possible values 'true' or 'false'.

  • willRetry is true when the request failed, but will be retried. Possible values 'true' or 'false'.

  • error an error message when the activity failed to track or the response could not be parsed. Is undefined otherwise.

  • trackerToken the tracker token of the current install. Is undefined if request failed or response could not be parsed.

  • trackerName the tracker name of the current install. Is undefined if request failed or response could not be parsed.

  • network the first grouping level of the tracker name. Is undefined if request failed or response could not be parsed.

  • campaign the second grouping level of the tracker name. Is undefined if request failed or response could not be parsed.

  • adgroup the third grouping level of the tracker name. Is undefined if request failed or response could not be parsed.

  • creative the fourth grouping level of the tracker name. Is undefined if request failed or response could not be parsed.

Please make sure to consider applicable attribution data policies.
