The following document defines the process for creating a campaign to track pre-installed app bundles installed on Android devices.
Data Needed Before Beginning Process:
- Kochava SDK installed on the pre-loaded app
- Configure the pre-loaded app(s):
- Configure to make a background web request on first launch “or”
- Configure app bundle to fire click upon open
- Create an app within Kochava.
- Create a Campaign.
- Create a Segment.
- Create a Tracker using a VPPN or network responsible for the campaign.
- Configure the pre-loaded apps to make a background web request (fire a click on the Kochava tracker) upon first launch prior to the Kochava SDK initializing and sending that install notification to the Kochava servers.
- If the app is pre-loaded as part of a bundle (e.g., Game Center), configure the click to fire upon opening of that app bundle.
NOTE: If the above procedure flow is completed correctly, all installs of the pre-loaded apps will be attributed to the VPPN or network, and will be clearly defined apart from other installs.
