CleverTap GTM iOS Integration

Learn how to send iOS app events to CleverTap via GTM


Using Google Tag Manager for iOS, you can control which of your third-party vendors receive events and create tags specific to CleverTap.

Clevertap iOS SDK can be initialized and controlled by tags configured within Google Tag Manager. But, before using Google Tag Manager, ensure that you complete the initial Android SDK Setup.


The following are the steps to integrate CleverTap with GTM in your project:

  1. To install the CleverTap iOS SDK, refer to the Install SDK section.

  2. To associate your iOS app with your CleverTap account, you must add your CleverTap credentials in the Info.plist file in your application. To do so:

    a. Create a key called CleverTapAccountID of type string.
    b. Create a key called CleverTapToken of type string.
    c. Insert the Account ID and Account Token values from your CleverTap account by navigating to the Settings page. Here, the Account ID is equivalent to the Project ID.

  3. Initialize the SDK.

  • Objective-C

    a. Import CleverTap.h to your AppDelegate.h file.
    b. Import CleverTap.h into every class where you plan to record user events. For instance, in the application code shown below, we record user events in the ViewController class by importing CleverTap.h into the ViewController.h file.

(BOOL) application:(UIApplication *)application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions {
[CleverTap autoIntegrate];
  • Swift

    a. Import CleverTapSDK to your AppDelegate.swift file.
    b. Add [CleverTap autoIntegrate] within the application:didfinishlaunchingwithoptions: method of your AppDelegate.m file. This creates an instance of the CleverTap class used to track app launches, receive in-app notifications, and enable deep-link tracking.

func application(application: UIApplication, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [NSObject:AnyObject]?) -> Bool {
  1. To enable location tracking, and network information, you must call the following method in your app build:
ObjC: [[CleverTap sharedInstance] enableDeviceNetworkInfoReporting:YES];
clevSwift: CleverTap.sharedInstance().enableDeviceNetworkInfoReporting(true)
