Creating Dynamic Links with the Firebase Console

The first way to create Dynamic Links is using the Firebase console. This option is best for users who are not familiar with code or are not experienced app developers. If you are new to Firebase , this would be a great place to start! On your dashboard, select "Dynamic Links" under the "App Engine" group. Next, click on the default URL listed under "Default links." Change it to whatever use case makes sense for your given product/service by adding text and any other appropriate options (e.g., an icon). For example :

This link could redirect users to https://www.your-brand.com/redirect?token= . You will then be able to customize this in the "Details" section by selecting the text under "Destination URL" and adding any other information you would like in the optional fields.

Now that your Dynamic Link is created, you'll need to send it out! This can be done via email, a website link, an ad campaign, or anywhere else easiest for the end user.

Creating Dynamic Links Using REST API

The second option is using our REST API. If you are comfortable programming in general or if you have experience with either iOS (Swift) and/or Android (Java), this is a great path for you since we allow developers to create their own links programmatically at this stage. First, head over to the Firebase Dynamic Links REST API Reference Documentation to learn what endpoints are available. Once you're familiar with them, it's time to get your hands dirty!

Note : This example uses Swift , but the same process applies for Android .

Begin by creating a new project in Xcode . Then, import our framework into your Podfile via adding pod 'Firebase/DynamicLinks' and run pod install --repo-update . Next, create an empty file called "AndroidManifest.xml" within the app folder of your project. Open this file and insert the following permissions:

 

...

Open your AppDelegate.swift file and import our framework as follows:

Next, create a function to create the Dynamic Link as shown below:

This will return you an instance of GADynamicLinks which can be used to check the status of the created link (e.g., if it has been opened). You can now send this link out to whomever/wherever! The only thing left is checking whether or not it opens up properly once clicked. Firebase includes a method for developers to track opens, so head over to app-name . firebaseio . com / console / analytics / views / open_status?dlink={DYNAMIC LINK}pli={PLACEMENT ID} to check the status of your link.

Lastly, you can also create a Dynamic Link directly from a domain using one of our templates. This is best for those who have an app already and want to change a link within their current app without having to use code or any other complex processes. The first option is with Android Builder by opening up build.gradle and adding the following line:

Next, go into your strings.xml file and add the following:

Now open up MainActivity . java and insert the following lines :

Lastly, head over to your Firebase console , click on "Dynamic Links" under "App Engine," then select "Templates." From here, you will be able to choose from various popular apps and brands to create a link for.

Creating Dynamic Links Using iOS or Android Builder API

The third option is using our iOS and/or Android Builder APIs. This is very similar to how we set up the Firebase console , but this route is for those who prefer programming in code and/or want more granular control over what they are creating dynamically from the ground up. This involves two steps: creating a custom URL scheme, then requesting it from your app. First, you will need to add a custom URL scheme within your project settings on each respective platform (e.g., "com.companyname" with a corresponding URI). Then, request that URL when you would like to open up the Dynamic Link via opening an activity. We will provide you with the code to request this dynamically, so just copy and paste!

That's it! If you have any questions, feel free to reach out via email or through Twitter .
