How to access Adobe Tags in the iOS and Android SDK

Level 1
Level 1

We are investigating using Adobe tags in our iOS and Android apps for configuring various systems i.e. turning features on and off.

I've been trying to find the SDK documentation on how to do that, and have so far drawn a blank.

I can see this tutorial which shows the app receiving the tags configuration, but I haven't found which API we would use to extract that information, use the settings in the app, and probably listen for any changes in the settings.

If anyone could point me in the right direction, that would be very helpful - thanks!

Hey John - you will find most of the information you are looking for on our dedicated Mobile SDK doc site: 


Most of the tags are not deployed in Launch, but can be controlled via Launch. Typically a trackAction or trackState call is made within the app to denote a button press or view switch etc. With each one of these calls you can attach additional context data. Data Elements can be created within Launch to alias the data flowing through the mobile app for additional controls and rule building. 


Hope that helps!

Thanks Ivan - I don't think I was very clear in my original question.


What I'm looking for is to be able just to read incoming tags (e.g. things like feature flags) that have been set on the server, rather than track user events and post them up to the server (which is what we already do).


Am I misunderstanding that this is something we could do via Adobe Tags/Launch?


If so, is there a specific page in the docs that would point me to that SDK function? I've already searched the SDK docs and found nothing yet, which could be because I've misunderstood the feature set (or I'm not very good at searching!)


Thanks again
