Test Plan

The following is a test procedure which allows you to verify that your Rover integration is complete and working.


1. Installation and Initialization

1.1 Validate Correct Token

Using Charles, inspect the network traffic and ensure the proper account token is being used. You can find this in the x-rover-account-token header. The correct value can be found in the Rover Settings app labelled “SDK Token”.

Rover deep links use a specific URL scheme assigned to your Rover account. You can find this in the Rover Settings app labelled “URL Scheme”. Throughout this section of the test plan we will use rv-my-app when constructing example deep links. Any time you see this value you should replace it with the correct URL scheme for your app.

Note that typing your deep links into Chrome or another web browser will likely not work: it will just search for your deep link on Google. As a workaround, consider installing Firefox for Android and typing or pasting the link into its address bar.

Alternatively, if you have a workstation with the Android debug tools installed, you can also use:

adb shell am start -W -a android.intent.action.VIEW -d <deep link>

Visit rv-my-app://presentSettings on your device.

It should prompt to open the URL in your app. The app should open and display the Rover Settings screen.

Open an Experience in the Rover Experiences app and find the Experience ID from the URL in the browser address bar. Construct a deep link to test with the format rv-my-app://presentExperience?id=XXX replacing XXX with the Experience ID. It should prompt to open the URL in your app. The app should open and display the experience associated with the ID.

Visit rv-my-app://presentNotificationCenter on your device. It should prompt to open the URL in your app. The app should open and display the Rover Notification Center.


Rover Universal Links use a specific domain assigned to your Rover account. You can find this in the Rover Settings app labelled “Associated Domain”. Throughout this section of the test plan we will use my-app.rover.io when constructing example Universal Links. Any time you see this value you should replace it with the correct associated domain for your app.

After following the Site Association instructions on the Rover developer website, Rover will host an App Links Digital Asset Links JSON for you. You can access the file at your associated domain and the path expected by Google. E.g. https://my-app.rover.io/.well-known/assetlinks.json . View your association file in the browser and ensure the package_name value is correct as outlined on the Rover developer website.

Open an Experience in the Rover Experiences app, click the chain/link icon, copy the Published Web Link and paste the copied URL to the Chrome/browser address bar on your device. It should prompt to open the URL in your app. The app should open and display the experience associated with the URL.


4. Syncing Data

4.1 Foreground Syncing

Ensure your device is connected to Charles and start in the terminated state (app swiped away in the task switcher). Open the app to initiate the app initialization process. Watch the network traffic and look for a query to Rover’s GraphQL API named Sync. Put the app in the background by pressing the home button (or on newer Android P devices using the Home gesture) and open it again. You should see the same call made again.

5. Events

5.1 Foreground Flushing

With your device connected to Charles, open your app and wait 30 seconds. You should see the trackEvents mutation being called on Rover’s GraphQL API.

5.2 Background Flushing

With your device connected to Charles, open your app and then immediately return to the home screen. You should see a trackEvents mutation being called on Rover’s GraphQL API.


6. Push Notifications

6.1 Push Token

Open the Settings view in your app via the deep link described in 2.1. Take note of your device identifier. Open the Rover Audience app in a browser and find your device. Make sure your device has a valid push token assigned to it.

6.2 Push

Create a scheduled notification campaign. With your app in the background, press the Send a Test button and select your test device. Verify the push notification is received.

6.3 Rich Media

Create a scheduled notification campaign. Add an attachment to the notification. Press the Send a Test button and select your test device and verify the push notification is received and the image is attached.

6.4 Open Experience Tap Behaviour

Create a scheduled notification campaign with the tap behavior set to “Present an experience”. With your app in the foreground, with the notification centre area displayed if it has one, press the Send a Test button and select your test device. Tap the push notification when it is received. Verify the experience is displayed.


7. Location

7.1 Location Permissions

Open your app, and ensure that you’ve opted into the Location Permission. Verify in Android Settings → Apps → Your App → that Location Permission is enabled.

7.2 Location Updates

With your device connected to Charles, open your app and then immediately return to the home screen. You should see a trackEvents mutation being called on Rover’s GraphQL API. Look for the location key inside variablesevents[0]device and ensure that it isn’t null, and had a latitude and longitude appropriate to your current location.


8. User Info

The User Info section of the Rover documentation explains how you can attach properties about the current user to the device which will show up in the Audience app and can be used for segmentation or personalization.

8.1 Setting User Info

Perform an action in your app which causes your app to set some user info properties on the Rover SDK. Perform an event flush with your device connected to Charles. Assuming 5.2 Background Flushing is working correctly, the easiest way to perform an event flush is to put your app in the background. Watch the network traffic in Charles and look for the trackEvents mutation. The JSON payload contains an array of events. Inspect one or more of the events and ensure it contains a device.userInfo property. Ensure the value of this property matches the expected user info properties set by your app.


9. Ticketmaster

9.1 Ticketmaster Sign In

Open the app and sign-in to Ticketmaster through the Presence SDK. After you’ve signed in, perform a sync with your device connected to Charles. Assuming 4.1 Foreground Syncing is working correctly, the easiest way to perform a sync is to just open the app. Watch the network traffic in Charles and look for a query to Rover’s GraphQL API named Sync and ensure that the request contains a value for ticketmasterHostMemberID or ticketmasterMemberID. Ensure the HTTP response body includes a value for data.ticketmaster.

9.2 Ticketmaster Credentials Persisted

Terminate the app by using the Force Stop option in app info. Re-open the app, and confirm that the same fields and response body results are present in the subsequent Sync request.

9.3 Ticketmaster Sign Out

After completing step 9.1, verify that the ticketmaster fields disappear from subsequent sync requests after signing out of ticketmaster in the app.
