Create a Custom Postback


Feature Summary: Custom postbacks allow marketers to send a real-time feed of data captured by Kochava to a specific endpoint. This is particularly useful if your team has internal tools/endpoints that are built to analyze/store data for your apps.

 

NOTE: Within Kochava, it is possible to create Kochava-Certified Postbacks. For more information, refer to our Kochava-Certified Postbacks support document.

 

Use Cases for Custom Postbacks:

A Custom Postback enables Kochava users to perform tasks such as:

  • Post a real-time feed of install and post-install events to an endpoint (e.g., data warehouse)
  • Customize which parameters are sent on postback
  • Create postbacks on demand

  19. NOTE: The Retry Attempts determines the number of times Kochava will attempt to redeliver an event postback upon posting failure. Retry Attempts can be set from Do Not Retry to up to 10 attempts.
