  7. Go to your Meta Ads Manager and create your ad set. Use the Tenjin campaign name as your Meta ad set name. For example, it would say "iOS-US-male-Wordsearch @hB1zqEeYDeKgDPF6qvkq7O". You can give any name for the Meta campaign.

  9. To redirect users to a specific place in your app, you can append any parameter and value to the deeplink generated in step 6 above. For example:

    Original Meta deferred deeplink:

    fb1423740114570310//?campaign_id=hB1zqEeYDeKgDPF6qvkq7O
    

    Meta deferred deeplink with a custom parameter/key:

    fb1423740114570310//?campaign_id=hB1zqEeYDeKgDPF6qvkq7O&creative_name=TEST
    

When there's an app install from your campaign, the entire deeplink url with the custom parameter will. be passed to the Tenjin SDK. The customized deeplink data can be fetched directly from the Tenjin SDK to handle any type of redirects within your app by following these instructions: iOS, Android, and Unity.


Tracking Android campaigns using referrer

Meta passes campaign metadata through Android referrer on the first app open, which can be used for attribution. More details are available in Meta's official documentation. In order to use referrer tracking, please follow the steps below.

  1. Ensure you are using the latest Tenjin SDK and implement the Android referrer. If Android referrer is implemented properly, you can see the green received mark in the app page.
