iOS Advanced Features

Send Location Information to CleverTap

- (void)locationManager:(CLLocationManager *)manager 
    didUpdateToLocation:(CLLocation *)newLocation 
           fromLocation:(CLLocation *)oldLocation {
    [CleverTap setLocation: newLocation.coordinate];
}
func locationManager(manager: CLLocationManager, didUpdateToLocation newLocation: CLLocation,
                     fromLocation oldLocation: CLLocation) {
    CleverTap.setLocation(newLocation.coordinate)
}

Manually Enable Support for Universal (Deep) Link Tracking

Deep links are a way of launching a native app and providing additional information telling it to do some specific event or show specific content. CleverTap automatically tracks universal links that open your application. If you have universal (deep) links coming to your app, you can capture the incoming UTM parameters easily. Call handleOpenURL:sourceApplication: when the application:openURL:sourceApplication:annotation: message is sent to your app delegate.

- (BOOL) application:(UIApplication *)application
    openURL:(NSURL *)url
    sourceApplication:(NSString *)sourceApplication
    annotation:(id)annotation {
      [[CleverTap sharedInstance] handleOpenURL:url sourceApplication:sourceApplication];
      return YES;
}

- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)app
            openURL:(NSURL *)url
            options:(NSDictionary *)options {
    [[CleverTap sharedInstance] handleOpenURL:url sourceApplication:nil];
    return YES;
}

- (void)openURL:(NSURL*)url options:(NSDictionary<NSString *, id> *)options
completionHandler:(void (^ __nullable)(BOOL success))completion {
    [[CleverTap sharedInstance] handleOpenURL:url sourceApplication:nil];
    if (completion) {
        completion(YES);
    }
}
func application(application: UIApplication, openURL url: NSURL,
                 sourceApplication: String?, annotation: AnyObject) -> Bool {
    CleverTap.sharedInstance()?.handleOpenURL(url, sourceApplication: sourceApplication)
    return true
}

// Swift 3
func application(_ app: UIApplication, open url: URL, options: [UIApplicationOpenURLOptionsKey : Any] = [:]) -> Bool {
   CleverTap.sharedInstance()?.handleOpen(url, sourceApplication: nil)
   return true
}

func open(_ url: URL, options: [String : Any] = [:],
                   completionHandler completion: ((Bool) -> Swift.Void)? = nil) {
    CleverTap.sharedInstance()?.handleOpen(url, sourceApplication: nil)
    completion?(false)
}

Debugging

By default, CleverTap logs are set to CleverTapLogLevel.info. During development, we recommend that you set the SDK to DEBUG mode, in order to log warnings or other important messages to the iOS logging system. This can be done by setting the debug level to CleverTapLogLevel.debug. If you want to disable CleverTap logs for production environment, you can set the debug level to CleverTapLogLevel.off.

#ifdef DEBUG
   [CleverTap setDebugLevel:CleverTapLogDebug];
#else
   [CleverTap setDebugLevel:CleverTapLogOff];
#endif
#if DEBUG
    CleverTap.setDebugLevel(CleverTapLogLevel.debug.rawValue)
#else
    CleverTap.setDebugLevel(CleverTapLogLevel.off.rawValue)
#endif

To debug the device in the CleverTap dashboard and check if events and profiles are being logged successfully on dashboard:

  1. Copy the CleverTap ID from the logs.
  2. Open the CleverTap dashboard.
  3. Navigate to Segments> Find People > search By Identity.

Setting Account Credentials

If you do not wish to insert your account credentials in your app’s Info.plist, or you want to set your account ID programmatically, you can do so in your app delegate, in application:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:

- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions {
    [CleverTap setCredentialsWithAccountID:@"Your account ID here" andToken:@"Your account token here"];
    [CleverTap autoIntegrate];
    ...
    return YES;
}
func application(application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [NSObject:AnyObject]?) -> Bool {
    CleverTap.setCredentialsWithAccountID("Your account ID here", andToken: "Your account token here")
    CleverTap.autoIntegrate()
    ...
    return true
}

If you have set used this method to set your CleverTap Account ID and Token, please ensure that you do not make an entry for these values in your info.plist files.

Checking Push Notifications from CleverTap

If you wish to determine whether a notification originated from CleverTap, call this method:

  • (BOOL)isCleverTapNotification:(NSDictionary *)payload;

You must manually call the SDK as follows/add the following CleverTap code to your AppDelegate:

- (void) userNotificationCenter:(UNUserNotificationCenter *)center didReceiveNotificationResponse:(UNNotificationResponse *)response withCompletionHandler:(void (^)(void))completionHandler {

    /**
     Use this method to perform the tasks associated with your app's custom actions. When the user responds to a notification, the system calls this method with the results. You use this method to perform the task associated with that action, if at all. At the end of your implementation, you must call the completionHandler block to let the system know that you are done processing the notification.

     You specify your app's notification types and custom actions using UNNotificationCategory and UNNotificationAction objects.
     You create these objects at initialization time and register them with the user notification center. Even if you register custom actions, the action in the response parameter might indicate that the user dismissed the notification without performing any of your actions.

     If you do not implement this method, your app never responds to custom actions.

     see https://developer.apple.com/reference/usernotifications/unusernotificationcenterdelegate/1649501-usernotificationcenter?language=objc
     **/

    if ([[CleverTap sharedInstance] isCleverTapNotification:response.notification.request.content.userInfo]) {

       ...
    }
    completionHandler();
}
func userNotificationCenter(_ center: UNUserNotificationCenter, didReceive response: UNNotificationResponse, withCompletionHandler completionHandler: @escaping () -> Void) {
        
     /**
     Use this method to perform the tasks associated with your app's custom actions. When the user responds to a notification, the system calls this method with the results.

     **/

      print("APPDELEGATE: didReceiveResponseWithCompletionHandler \(response.notification.request.content.userInfo)")

      // If you wish to determine whether a notification originated from CleverTap, you must manually call the SDK as follows:
      if CleverTap.sharedInstance().isCleverTapNotification(response.notification.request.content.userInfo) {

          ...
      }
