Set up subscription recording

Adjust no longer offers this version of subscription recording for new customers. If you are already set up with subscription recording, reach out to your dedicated Technical Account Manager or for support.

With Adjust, you can record users’ subscriptions from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store and measure signup behavior. Use this data to calculate users’ lifetime value (LTV) and create effective retargeting campaigns.

Before you begin

Here’s what you need to know before getting started.


  • Subscription Recording Growth Solution on your account
  • Admin, Editor, or Custom Editor permissions
  • An app in AppView with a connected platform (iOS app with Apple App Store | Android app with Google Play Store)
  • Store-specific values:
    • Apple App Store - App-Specific Shared Secret
    • Google Play Store - Private Key Credential File
