AppsFlyer connection guide

This guide contains all permissions and requirements for connecting your AppsFlyer data to Supermetrics.

You can connect to data sources from the Data sources page on the Supermetrics Hub. On the Hub, you can also share an authentication link to connect to a data source you don't have direct access to.

After you connect to the data source on the Hub, you can use the data source connection in all available destinations.

Required permissions

To connect Supermetrics to AppsFlyer, you need:

  • Account admin access
  • API token (V2.0)

Retrieve your API tokens
  1. Log in to AppsFlyer.
  2. Click the email address in the top right corner to open the user menu drop-down.
  3. Click Security center.

Query types

Query types define what sort of metrics and dimensions are available. Supermetrics supports 2 query types to fetch performance data on how different marketing channels and user acquisition sources perform. You need to select one of the following query types when pulling data:

  • Aggregated performance (Pull API) report: Get basic aggregated performance data for your mobile apps. This report is available for all AppsFlyer users.
  • Aggregated performance (Master API) report: Fetch more granular data with less restrictive rate limits, including ad group, ad, and keyword splits. The Master API requires a separate subscription; please contact AppsFlyer to gain access. Learn more about the Master API in AppsFlyer's documentation.
  • Event data export: Fetch raw event level data, each row is one event logged in AppsFlyer.

    The raw data from the Event data export query type (any fields that begin with raw_data_) is only available in data warehouse destinations and the Supermetrics API. You also need an Enterprise AppsFlyer subscription with raw data API enabled.
