Identity API reference

appendToURL / appendVisitorInfoForURL

This API appends Adobe visitor information to the query component of the specified URL.
If the provided URL is null or empty, it is returned as is. Otherwise, the following information is added to the query component of the specified URL and is returned in the callback function:
  • The adobe_mc attribute is a URL encoded list that contains:
    • MCMID - Experience Cloud ID (ECID)
    • MCORGID - Experience Cloud Org ID
    • MCAID - Analytics Tracking ID (AID), if available from the Analytics extension
    • TS - A timestamp taken when this request was made
  • The optional adobe_aa_vid attribute is the URL-encoded Analytics Custom Visitor ID (VID), if previously set in the Analytics extension.
This API is designed to handle the following URL formats:
scheme://authority/path?query=param#fragment
In this example, the Adobe visitor data is appended as:
scheme://authority/path?query=param&adobe_mc=TS%3Dtimestamp%7CMCMID%3Decid%7CMCORGID%3Decorgid%40AdobeOrg#fragment
Similarly, URLs without a query component:
scheme://authority/path#fragment
The Adobe visitor data is appended as:
scheme://authority/path?adobe_mc=TS%3Dtimestamp%7CMCMID%3Decid%7CMCORGID%3Decorgid%40AdobeOrg#fragment
In these examples the adobe_mc parameters are separated by "|" (pipe) and are encoded.
adobe_mc = TS=XXXXXX|MCMID=XXXXXX|MCAID=XXXXXX|[email protected]
If your application uses more complicated URLs, such as Angular URLs, you should use getUrlVariables.

This API can be called with AdobeCallback or AdobeCallbackWithError for retrieving the attributes from the Mobile SDK. When AdobeCallbackWithError is provided, this API uses a default timeout of 500ms. If the operation times out or an unexpected error occurs, the fail method is called with the appropriate AdobeError.
Syntax
public static void appendVisitorInfoForURL(final String baseURL, final AdobeCallback<String> callback);
  • baseUrl is the URL to which the visitor information needs to be appended. If the visitor information is nil or empty, the URL is returned as is.
  • callback is invoked after the updated URL is available.
Example
Identity.appendVisitorInfoForURL("https://example.com", new AdobeCallback<String>() {
@Override
public void call(String urlWithAdobeVisitorInfo) {
//handle the new URL here
//For example, open the URL on the device browser
//
Intent i = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW);
i.setData(Uri.parse(urlWithAdobeVisitorInfo));
startActivity(i);
}
});

Swift

Syntax
static func appendTo(url: URL?, completion: @escaping (URL?, Error?) -> Void)
  • url is the URL to which the visitor information needs to be appended. If the visitor information is nil or empty, the URL is returned as is.
  • completion is invoked after the updated URL is available or Error if an unexpected exception occurs or the request times out. The returned Error contains the AEPError code of the specific error.
Example
Identity.appendTo(url: URL(string: "https://example.com")) { appendedURL, error in
if let error = error {
// handle error
} else {
// handle the appended url here
if let appendedURL = appendedURL {
// APIs which update the UI must be called from main thread
