Segment React-Native Integration

Learn how to perform CleverTap Segment React-Native integration.


The Segment React Native SDK allows you to track event data from your React Native applications and send it to CleverTap via Segment.


The following are the prerequisites for performing this integration:

  • A CleverTap account
  • A Segment account
  • A functional React Native application


For CleverTap Segment React Native integration, the following are the significant steps:

Add Destination in Segment

Destinations are the business tools or applications to which Segment forwards your data. Adding Destinations allows you to act on your data and learn more about your customers in real time.

To add CleverTap details in Segment:

  1. Go to Destinations in the Segment application.
  2. Click on Add Destination and select CleverTap.
  3. In the Destination Catalog/CleverTap page, click on Configure CleverTap.
  4. Add CleverTap Account ID and Account Token, which you can find on the CleverTap Dashboard under Settings page.
  5. Select the appropriate region from the Region dropdown. To identify the region of your CleverTap account, refer to the following table:
  1. Turn on the toggle at the top of the Settings page to enable the destination.

Install SDK in React-Native Application

We recommend installing the React Native SDK through npm. To add the SDK as a dependency, perform the following steps:

  1. Go to the root of your Application and add @segment/analytics-react-native to your Application using the following code:
npm install @segment/[email protected]
  1. Add the Segment-CleverTap module to your application using the following code:
npm install @segment/[email protected]


Segment SDK Version

Currently, CleverTap supports only Segment SDK version v1 (i.e. v1.5.0) and not v2. To understand the Segment SDK v2 not supporting issue, refer to v2 Migration Issue.


React Native v18 Changes

The latest versions of react native use higher versions of Android Build SDK. Segment version v1 does not support Kotlin beyond 1.4.0 version. Therefore you need to change the Kotlin version manually in build.gradle files of associated plugins:

  1. in node_modules/@segment/analytics-react-native/android/build.gradle, update manually ext.defaultKotlinVersion value from '1.4.0' to '1.7.0'.

  2. in node_modules/@segment/analytics-react-native-clevertap/android/build.gradle, update manually classpath 'org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-gradle-plugin:1.3.1' to classpath 'org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-gradle-plugin:1.7.0'.

  1. Navigate to your Android/App folder and add the following dependency to your app/build.gradle file:
implementation ''
    implementation ''

    implementation '' //Optional for Audio/Video
    implementation '' //Optional for Audio/Video
    implementation '' //Optional for Audio/Video
    implementation 'com.github.bumptech.glide:glide:4.11.0' //Mandatory for App Inbox
    implementation 'androidx.recyclerview:recyclerview:1.1.0' //Mandatory for App Inbox
    implementation 'androidx.viewpager:viewpager:1.0.0' //Mandatory for App Inbox
    implementation '' //Mandatory for App Inbox
    implementation 'androidx.appcompat:appcompat:1.2.0' //Mandatory for App Inbox
    implementation 'androidx.core:core:1.3.0'
    implementation 'androidx.fragment:fragment:1.1.0' // InApp
    //Mandatory for React Native SDK v0.3.9 and above add the following -
    implementation ''
  1. In Terminal, go to the iOS folder and install all the pod file by running the following command:
pod install

Initialize the Segment Client

To initialize the Segment client:

  1. Import the module you added above, as shown below:
import analytics from '@segment/analytics-react-native'
import CleverTap from '@segment/analytics-react-native-clevertap'
  1. Initialize the CleverTap-Segment SDK as follows:
analytics.setup('YOUR_WRITE_KEY', {
  // Add any of your Device-mode destinations.
        using: [CleverTap],
        debug: true,
        recordScreenViews: false,
        trackAppLifecycleEvents: true,
        trackAttributionData: true
    .then(() =>
        console.log('Analytics is ready'),
    .catch(err =>
YOUR_WRITE_KEYIn the Segment dashboard, navigate to Connections > Sources. Select the source and navigate to Settings > API Keys to get Write Key information.
trackAppLifecycleEventsThis allows you to track Segment SDK to capture their Lifecycle events.
debugThis allows you to go through the application log while developing the application.

Push User Information

You can call the analytics.identify() method for pushing user profiles when a user logs in or registers to your application or when you want to update any user information.
After installing an application on a device, your user is assigned an "anonymous" profile. The first time when the application identifies the user on the device, the "anonymous" history on the device is associated with the newly identified user.

You can call this method as follows:

analytics.identify("userid", {
                                name: "Name Surname",
                                email: "[email protected]",
                                phone: "+919869357572",
                                gender: "M",
                                avatar: "link to image",
                                title: "Owner",
                                organization: "Company",
                                city: "Tokyo",
                                region: "ABC",
                                country: "JP",
                                zip: "100-0001",
                                Flagged: false,
                                Residence: "Shibuya",
                                "MSG-email": true

Replace userid with the unique identifier for your application. This identifier must match the identifier selected on the CleverTap dashboard.

Push Events

You can call the analytics.track() method to capture any user action in your application.
For example, when a user views any product, and you want to capture this event, then call this method and pass the following parameters:

  • Event: Product Viewed
  • Event Properties: Product viewed, Category, and Amount


Event Property Data Types

  • The value of a property can be Integer, Long, Double, Float, Character, String, or Boolean.
  • The Date value must always be passed as $D_EPOCH value only.

Calling a push event method may vary based on the type of event as follows:

  • All events except the Order Completed event:
analytics.track("Checked Out", {
  Clicked_Rush_delivery_Button: true,
  total_value: 2000,
  revenue: 2000,
  • Order Completed (equivalent to the Charged event in CleverTap)
analytics.track("Order Completed", {
      checkout_id: "12345",
      order_id: "1234",
      affiliation: "Apple Store",
      'Payment mode': "Credit Card",
      total: 20,
      revenue: 15.0,
      shipping: 22,
      tax: 1,
      discount: 1.5,
      coupon: "Games",
      currency: "USD",
      products: [
          product_id: "123",
          sku: "G-32",
          name: "Monopoly",
          price: 14,
          quantity: 1,
          category: "Games",
          url: "",
          image_url: "",
          product_id: "345",
          sku: "F-32",
          name: "UNO",
          price: 3.45,
          quantity: 2,
          category: "Games",
          product_id: "125",
          sku: "S-32",
          name: "Ludo",
          price: 14,
          quantity: 7,
          category: "Games",
          brand: "Ludo King"
