Deep links from external App

Avatar

Level 2

We want to link from an external CRM-App into the AEM/DPS-App. If we install the Development-App and the Live-App on the same iPad, how we can specify which app should be open? The link format for deep links contains the publicatonID. Is the publicationID identical for both apps?

To link from outside the app, you can use this format:

dps.<publicationID>://

Example: dps.d14ddfea-7e7f-45ee-a2ef-cffc669627aa://

See the section of the hyperlinks article about linking from outside the app: Hyperlinks in AEM Mobile

To answer your question, if you have both a development app and a production app installed on the same device, I'm not sure which app take precedence. Both refer to the same publication ID. Personally, I try to avoid having the dev and dist versions of the same app on a device. Unless you build your app using Enterprise certs, Apple doesn't let you install both the dev and dist version of the app on a device, so I haven't tested this.

under iOS it should be possible using the CustomURL-Scheme which contains your App-ID/bundle-id (specified in the Apple developer portal and in the aemmobile-portal under apps)

This (old) documentation should show you how to create the link
