How to set up universal links in hubspot for iOS?


#1

Hi,
I’m trying to set up iOS deep linking for apps (universal links). In order to do this, apple requires us to host a static json file at https://mycompany.com/.well-known/apple-app-site-association. See apple documentation: https://developer.apple.com/library/content/documentation/General/Conceptual/AppSearch/UniversalLinks.html

I uploaded the apple-app-site-association file using hubspot’s file manager, but the closest option I could get for a link is https://mycompany.com/hubfs/.well-known/apple-app-site-association
Using hubspot, how do I make the url be https://mycompany.com/.well-known/apple-app-site-association ?

Note: My question relates to this, FTP access limited permissions, but even if I use the suggested FTP client (Fetch), it will not let me upload to the root directory.

This question, which is asking the same thing, was never answered:

Hi @rlegrand,

This isn’t possible with HubSpot-hosted domains because it’s not possible to host files at the root directory. That said, I can totally see the use case here. I’m happy to pass this along internally, but if you have the inclination I would encourage you to check out the Ideas Forum on the HubSpot Community. There, you can create a post including your use case that product and other customers can see.

Hi @Derek_Gervais,

Thanks for the response. I added a post to the community:


Please note my suggested solution at the end: you could give us access to the /.well-known/ folder, without needing to give us access to the root folder.

Hey @rlegrand,

Interesting use case you brought up. I’m with AppLink.io, a mobile app analytics platform that connects apps to HubSpot.

We’re currently working on a deep-linking feature for our integrations. I’d love to chat with you more to learn about your exact use case and see if it fits into our product.

Hi @Adam_Hass,

Thanks for the response. Looks like a pretty interesting product! Right now we’re trying to use deep linking with our current setup and existing app, and I don’t think it will work with another 3rd party service. Please keep me posted for when you do have support for deep-linking, we’ll definitely re-evaluate then.
