Deeplink won't match a correct path


#1

ionic 3.14.0

Universal link works well.
Any idea why it won’t match even though the log shows the correct path?

This is the link I’m trying: mysnapp://shows/123

this is the log:
console.error: Got a deeplink that didn't match: error opening ws message:

console.error:
Got a deeplink that didn't match:
error opening ws message:
{
	"category":"console",
	"type":"log",
	"data":["Ondeeplink",
		{"path":"/123",
		"queryString":"",
		"fragment":"",
		"host":"show",
		"url":"mysnapp://show/123",
		"scheme":"mysnapp"}]
}

code used:

this.deeplinks.route({
				'/home': HomePage,
				'/show/:showID': ShowsPage,
				'/product/:productID': ProductPage
			}).subscribe((match) => {
				//
			}, (nomatch) => {
				console.error('Got a deeplink that didn\'t match: ' + nomatch.$link);
			});

Try maybe adding app/ in your url

mysnapp://app/shows/123

#3

tried that already, same thing… even tried multiple options (/show, /app/show, etc…) to cover it all, nothing seems to work:

error opening ws message: {"category":"console","type":"log","data":["On deeplink",{"path":"/show/111","queryString":"","fragment":"","host":"app","url":"mysnapp://app/show/111","scheme":"mysnapp"}]}

How does your config.xml looks like?

I’ve got

<plugin name="ionic-plugin-deeplinks" spec="^1.0.15">
    <variable name="URL_SCHEME" value="mysnapp" />
    <variable name="DEEPLINK_SCHEME" value="https" />
    <variable name="DEEPLINK_HOST" value="mywebsite.com" />
    <variable name="ANDROID_PATH_PREFIX" value="/" />
    <variable name="ANDROID_2_PATH_PREFIX" value="/" />
    <variable name="ANDROID_3_PATH_PREFIX" value="/" />
    <variable name="ANDROID_4_PATH_PREFIX" value="/" />
    <variable name="ANDROID_5_PATH_PREFIX" value="/" />
    <variable name="DEEPLINK_2_SCHEME" value=" " />
    <variable name="DEEPLINK_2_HOST" value=" " />
    <variable name="DEEPLINK_3_SCHEME" value=" " />
    <variable name="DEEPLINK_3_HOST" value=" " />
    <variable name="DEEPLINK_4_SCHEME" value=" " />
    <variable name="DEEPLINK_4_HOST" value=" " />
    <variable name="DEEPLINK_5_SCHEME" value=" " />
    <variable name="DEEPLINK_5_HOST" value=" " />
</plugin>

also do you try on iOS? (I personally think it works better on iOS than Android…)

Also did you initialize your deep links when app is ready?

this.platform.ready().then(() => {
 this.deeplinks.route({
			'/home': HomePage,
			'/show/:showID': ShowsPage,
			'/product/:productID': ProductPage
		}).subscribe((match) => {
			//
		}, (nomatch) => {
			console.error('Got a deeplink that didn\'t match: ' + nomatch.$link);
		});
});

And finally, do you app use a Facebook login?

May sounds not relevant but I just had to build a workaround. After Facebook login, using cordova-plugin-facebook4, if you want deep linking to still match you would have to do the initialization again


#7

@reedrichards I do have facebook4 on the app but I’m testing without login in, does this change anything?


#8

Not really, I mean if you do a Facebook login and don’t close your app, yes. If you did a Fb login and did restart the app without doing the FB login again, no.

But here my workaround just in case, maybe it deserve a try? As you see, to init again I just call the same method when there is a nomatch.

private initializeDeepLinking() {
  this.platform.ready().then(() => {
   this.deeplinks.route({
   }).subscribe((match) => {
		//
	}, (nomatch) => {
       // HACK: Init again after nomatch from Facebook login
       this.initializeDeepLinking();
 });

For anyone having issue with this, I got it working with:
this.deeplinks.routeWithNavController(…

no luck with deeplonks.route

@christianpugliese bravo, congrats for finding it!

sorry I didn’t saw that, I use .route and in my case it’s working, maybe there is a difference because I use LazyLoading? Anyway cool to know you found the solution right before the weekend :wink:
