Facebook Crawler not accepting Dynamic Links
I cannot get dynamic branch links to work without debugging each URL first in FB’s Debug tool.
Say I have this link: https://myaccount.app.link/appid?samplekey=123
I tested and I must submit it to FB crawler to get it accepted by FB Ads…
Looks like I have to go through the whole process again if I want to use a different link: https://myaccount.app.link/appid?samplekey=456
What I need is to be able to use 1 key but multiple/changable values.
Is there a way I can get this to work without going through the debugger tool every time? Maybe I’m missing anything?
Thanks in advance
Hey – thanks for posting the process.
You can use the below code to automate the scraping process
curl --insecure "https://graph.facebook.com/?id=[YOUR-URL-TO-SCRAPE]&scrape=true"

Hi Ankit, thanks for your answer.
Is there a way to not having to debug links at all? It seems like a painful and unnecessary process, especially when talking about dynamic parameters…defeats the whole purpose hehe
I read here: https://dev.branch.io/features/facebook-ads/support/ios/#known-issue-with-app-restrictions that I could use a direct deep link:
Do you guys know how can I get Branch to pickup parameters in a direct deeplink like the example below and pass it into the app?
