The following guide will walk you through the steps for enabling the Apple Search Ads integration between AppsFlyer and Bidalgo.
Step 1 - Enable Integration Between Appsflyer and Apple
Log in to the Appsflyer dashboard.
Follow AppsFlyer instructions to enable Apple Search Ads attribution.
Step 2 - Locate Apple Search Ads Campaign Group Name
Locate the name of the Apple Search Ads Campaign Group from Apple Search Ad platform.
- Log in to Apple search ads.
Locate the relevant Campaign Group Name on the top left, in the example below its "Test Campaign Group".
Note down the Campaign Name (NOT the campaign ID).
NOTE: If the Campaign Group name has the same ID as the Apple Search Ads account (appearing in the upper right-hand corner), use the Account Name (also in the upper right corner) and not the Campaign Group name.
Step 3 - Configure Appsflyer Bidalgo Integration
1. Enter the name of the Apple Search Ads Campaign Group.
2. Enable In-App Events Postback and select to add manually the relevant events. Please note that the following events typically added are:
- af_purchase - don't forget to select to send Value
- af_level _achieved
If the advertiser or the agency has disabled attribution for Apple Search Ads, attribution for this app, including sending the postbacks to Apple Search Ads Marketing Partner campaigns, will not work.

Connecting 2nd Apple Search Ads Account (Optional)
Please note that this section is only relevant if more than 1 Campaign Group is used in Apple Search Ads
Currently AF supports a single campaign group integration in the Bidalgo ASA integration module. There is a workaround where Bidalgo can configure a second account but will need additional permissions.
In order to provide permissions to Bidalgo , please perform the following :
Click Integrated Partners on the left sidebar of the dashboard and Search for Bidalgo
Click the Permissions Tab
Check the following Check boxes
- Agency Permissions
- Allow Access to Retention Report
Allow to configure In-app event postbacks
- Events attributed to any partner
- Allow to send events revenue
