Deep Linking

Using Intercom you can embed a deep link in your in-app messages or as the URI for your push messages.

There are comprehensive guides on enabling deep links on both platforms here.

Setting up a Deep Link in Android

You'll need to set up a deep link in your apps AndroidManifest.xml. Android supports both app://page and http://www.app.com/page type schemes.

<activity
  android:name=".MainActivity"
  android:label="@string/app_name"
  android:configChanges="keyboard|keyboardHidden|orientation|screenSize|uiMode"
  android:launchMode="singleTask"
  android:windowSoftInputMode="adjustResize">
  <intent-filter>
    <action android:name="android.intent.action.MAIN"/>
    <category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER"/>
  </intent-filter>

  <!--  START: Add this  -->
  <intent-filter>
    <action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW"/>
    <category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT"/>
    <category android:name="android.intent.category.BROWSABLE"/>

    <data android:scheme="http" android:host="Your app url(www.app.com)"/> <!-- Edit this line -->
    <data android:scheme="Your app scheme(app)"/> <!-- Edit this line -->
  </intent-filter>
  <!--  END: Add this  -->

</activity>

Setting up a Deep Link in iOS

Intercom supports both Universal Links and Custom URL Schemes as a deep link.
Please follow the instructions for Universal Links on our main iOS page.

You'll also need to add the import to your AppDelegate.m

#import "AppDelegate.h"

#import <React/RCTBridge.h>
#import <React/RCTBundleURLProvider.h>
#import <React/RCTRootView.h>

#import <React/RCTLinkingManager.h> // <--Add this

Add finally include this snippet code in your AppDelegate.m above @end

- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application
   openURL:(NSURL *)url
   options:(NSDictionary<UIApplicationOpenURLOptionsKey,id> *)options
{
  return [RCTLinkingManager application:application openURL:url options:options];
}

Linking to your app

Once you have set up your app to respond to your deep link, you can send a push message with that as the URI. Tapping the push message will open your app to the specified page.

You can also add a link to your in-app messages and replies as follows:
