Set up Unicorn

Unicorn is a network and Adjust module partner. Our integration lets Unicorn receive attribution and app event data through automated callbacks.

Use our basic setup instructions to turn on Adjust’s integration and send callbacks to Unicorn. Then, use our advanced setup instructions to customize what information Unicorn receives.

Basic setup

To turn on Adjust’s integration with Unicorn, follow these steps.

  1. Find your app and select your app options caret (^)
  2. Select Partner Setup > ADD PARTNERS
  3. Select Add (+icon) next to Unicorn
  4. Turn on Enabled
  5. Optional: see advanced setup to customize your callbacks
  6. Select Save

Well done! Basic setup is complete. Now you can create an Adjust tracker URL and submit it to Unicorn to launch your campaign.

Unicorn will receive callbacks for these activities:

  • install
  • rejected install
  • session
  • event
  • reattribution
  • rejected reattribution

Advanced setup

Choose which data Unicorn receives from Adjust by customizing your setup.

Forward in-app revenue

Revenue forwarding lets Unicorn receive revenue amounts along with your revenue event data.

To forward in-app revenue to Unicorn, follow these steps.

  1. Find your app and select your app options caret (^)
  2. Select Partner Setup > Unicorn
  3. Turn on In-App Revenue Forwarding

Now Unicorn will receive the revenue amount for every tracked transaction.

 

Note: Link at least one revenue event to Unicorn before turning on Revenue Forwarding

 

Forward sessions

Adjust does not automatically send session callbacks due to the high volume of sessions.

To forward in-app sessions to Unicorn, follow these steps.

  1. Find your app and select your app options caret (^)
  2. Select Partner Setup > Unicorn
  3. Turn on Session Forwarding

Now Unicorn will receive your app’s session activity.

 

Forward app events

Event linking lets Unicorn receive app event data. You can link every app event in Adjust to a preset Unicorn name or a custom event name.

To forward app events to Unicorn, follow these steps.

  1. Find your app and select your app options caret (^)
  2. Select Partner Setup >Unicorn > Event Linking
  3. Find the event you want to link and update the field with a Unicorn event or your own custom name
  4. When you finish linking events, select OK
  5. Select Save

Now Unicorn will receive app event data for each of your linked events.
