Unity SDK Quick Start Guide


This section shows how to install the CleverTap SDK, track your first user event, and see this information within the CleverTap dashboard in less than ten minutes. CleverTap provides Unity SDK that enables app developers to track, segment, and engage their users.


To install the SDK:

  1. Import the CleverTapUnityPlugin.unitypackage into your Unity Project (Assets > Import Package > Custom Package) or manually copy Plugin/CleverTapUnity, Plugin/PlayServicesResolver and Plugin/Plugins/Android (or copy the files in Plugin/Plugins/Android to your existing Assets > Plugins > Android` directory) into the Assets directory of your Unity Project.
  2. Create an empty game object (GameObject > Create Empty) and rename it as CleverTapUnity. Add Assets/CleverTapUnity/CleverTapUnity-Scripts/CleverTapUnity.cs as a component of the CleverTapUnity GameObject.

Create a Sample(CleverTapUnity) Game Object

  1. Select the CleverTapUnity GameObject that you created in the Hierarchy pane and add your CleverTap settings inside the Inspector window. You must include your CleverTap Account ID and CleverTap Account Token from the Settings page.

Add CleverTap Account and Preferences

  1. Edit Assets/CleverTapUnity/CleverTapUnity-Scripts/CleverTapUnity.cs to add your calls to the CleverTap SDK. See usage examples in example/CleverTapUnity.cs. For more information, refer to the Developer Guide.


IDFV Usage for CleverTap ID

Starting from CleverTap Unity SDK 2.1.2, you can optionally disable the usage of IDFV for CleverTap ID by selecting CLEVERTAP_DISABLE_IDFV. We recommend this for apps that send data from different iOS apps to a common CleverTap account. By default, the CLEVERTAP_DISABLE_IDFV checkbox is cleared.

iOS Specific Instructions

  1. To enable Push Notifications, ensure to add the Push Notifications capability to your Xcode project.

Enable Push Notifications

  1. Add a run script to your build phases. In Xcode, go to your Targets, under your app’s name, select Build Phases after embed frameworks, add a run script phase, and set it to use /bin/sh and the iOS script:

Add a Run Script

The script scans your built application’s Frameworks folder and strips the unnecessary simulator architectures from the CleverTakSDK.framework prior to archiving/submitting the app store.

  1. Build and run your iOS project.

Android Specific Instructions


Steps for Android X Dependencies

Perform these additional steps only if you are using Android X dependencies.

  1. Go to File > Build Settings > Android > Player Settings > Publishing Settings > Build.
  2. Ensure the Custom Gradle Template option is selected.
  3. Go to Assets > Play Services Resolver > Android Resolver > Settings.
  4. Ensure that Use Jetifier and Patch mainTemplate.gradle options are selected.
  1. To enable Push Notifications, add the Firebase Unity SDK to your app. For more information, refer to Firebase Unity Setup Docs.



The Firebase Unity SDK may override your AndroidManifest.xml file. If that happens, revert to your original manifest file.

  1. Run Assets > Play Services Resolver > Android Resolver > Resolve Client Jars from the Unity menu bar to install the required google play services and android support library dependencies.
  2. Edit the AndroidManifest.xml file in Assets/Plugins/Android to add your Bundle Identifier, FCM Sender ID, CleverTap Account Id, CleverTap Token, and Deep Link URL scheme (if applicable):
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" package="YOUR_BUNDLE_IDENTIFIER" android:versionName="1.0" android:versionCode="1" android:installLocation="preferExternal"> <supports-screens android:smallScreens="true" android:normalScreens="true" android:largeScreens="true" android:xlargeScreens="true" android:anyDensity="true" />
    android:value="Your CleverTap Account ID"/>
    android:value="Your CleverTap Account Token"/>
<!-- Deep Links uncomment and replace YOUR_URL_SCHEME, if applicable, or remove if not supporting deep links-->
    <intent-filter android:label="@string/app_name">
    <action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW" />
    <category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
    <category android:name="android.intent.category.BROWSABLE" />
    <data android:scheme="YOUR_URL_SCHEME" />
  1. Add the following in the AndroidManifest.xml file:
            <action android:name="com.google.firebase.MESSAGING_EVENT"/>
  1. Add your google-services.json file to the project's Assets folder.
  2. Build your app or Android project as usual.

Initialize CleverTap SDK

    CleverTapBinding.LaunchWithCredentials(CLEVERTAP_ACCOUNT_ID, CLEVERTAP_ACCOUNT_TOKEN);


Track User Profiles

Create a User profile when the user logs in (On User Login):

Dictionary<string, string> newProps = new Dictionary<string, string>();
newProps.Add("email", "[email protected]");
newProps.Add("Identity", "123456");
newProps.put("Name", "Jack Montana");    // String
newProps.put("Identity", "61026032");      // String
newProps.put("Email", "[email protected]"); // Email address of the user
newProps.put("Phone", "+14155551234");   // Phone (with the country code, starting with +)
newProps.put("Gender", "M");             // Can be either M or F

Track User Events

Record an event without event data:

// record basic event with no properties

Record an event with event data:

// record event with properties
Dictionary<string, object> Props = new Dictionary<string, object>();
Props.Add("testKey", "testValue");
CleverTapBinding.RecordEvent("testEventWithProps", Props);
