Create Action

To create an action use builder method:

const action = Action.withType('my-custom-action');

Add action data using addActionData(key: string, value: string) or addActionData(actionData: Map<string, string>) - second one will add all the keys and values from parameter map. For the default GetSocial actions use one of constants to guarantee the default behavior. Also you can pass any custom data you want and handle it on the receiver side.

You can send any of predefined actions that will be handled by the SDK, for example to open Activity Feed with id “funny-stories” use:

const action = Action.withType(Action.Types.OPEN_URL)
  .addActionData(Action.DataKeys.OPEN_URL.URL, '');

Currently you can attach actions to notifications.

Handle Actions

handleAction(action: Action) {
  if (action.type == 'try-campaing-mode') {
  // Default actions are handled by GetSocial.

To handle custom actions use:


If you are not using GetSocial UI, we recommend to handle action by yourself - better user experience would be to react to actions.

GetSocial Actions

GetSocial SDK provides a list of predefined actions and processAction(...) method to process them. We use it internally in GetSocial UI. For you it may be helpful when building your custom UI.
