Airship provides push messaging services, including segmentation and targeting capabilities.
The Airship integration supports the following inputs: iOS, Android, Web, and Unbound. If you want to capture data for multiple platforms, you must configure one instance of the feed for each platform in mParticle. Airship uses their Real-time Data Streaming API and translates the data from Airship format to mParticle JSON.
NOTE: The integration maps Airship channels to mParticle platforms. For example, you set iOS in the Airship RTDS configuration page to map to iOS on the mParticle platform. iOS, Android, and Web have direct matches on the mParticle’s side. Airship email and SMS data are sent as Unbound data to mParticle. Another option is to configure all Airship data to be sent as unbound traffic. In this case, you will not select a platform in the mParticle configuration.
The Airship feed supports “act as” functionality, which means it acts like data is received from native platform inputs (i.e. iOS, Android, Web). Create a different configuration for each input including the unbound input specifying different names, platform. mParticle will generate a Server-to-server Key and Secret for each configuration.
For each created input, mParticle will provide a Server to Server Key and Secret. Copy these credentials for Airship setup, making sure to note which feed each pair of credentials is for. For each platform that you want to set up, complete the following steps:
