branch.io deeplinking not working

Asked on March 11, 2017 in Technical.

So I’ve setup branch.io and universal links on my app and website but the deep link doesn’t seem to be working

Using the dynamic link

https://foo.link?%24deeplink_path=event%2F99

I get redirected to

https://foo.com/?$deeplink_path=event%2F99

I was expecting it to go here instead

https://foo.com/event/99

Additionally – when I trigger the link in my app on device or simulator it doesn’t deep link in or trigger the branch event functions in react native – but does open the app. I’ve added the methods to AppDelegate and went through all the steps to deep link – did I miss something?

Hi – thanks for posting the question. It seems that you are using an incorrect app domain. Branch links are of the form xxxx.app.link. Can you head over to your Branch Dashboard->Settings->Link->Link domain and check what your Branch link domain is? Also, please refer to our guide here on creating Branch links. Let me know if you have more questions. Thanks!
