    Has anyone had any luck getting what Apple is calling 'Universal Links' in iOS 9 working with AppBuilder CLI projects?

    Universal Links

    I'm trying to get cordova-universal-links-plugin working.

    Hello barsh,

    I checked the above mentioned plugin and it seems that it heavily relies on Cordova hooks. For example, you can check the following lines of its plugin.xml file: 27, 28 and 31

    Unfortunately, such hooks are supported only in the Cordova Command Line Interface and thus, the configuration they execute is ignored in AppBuilder. This said, I believe the plugin won't function as expected in other than pure Cordova CLI projects, which is most likely the issue you are experiencing in your AppBuilder project.

    Further, I am not aware of any other plugin or approach that allows the usage of iOS9 Universal links in hybrid applications. However, you can still check the Custom URL Scheme plugin that provides similar functionality. I hope it helps.

    "Universal Links" is a big deal for users of our apps.  I'm hoping that AppBuilder will have a solution soon.

    Hi barsh,

    I have passed your inquiry to our development team, as I also think Universal Links should be supported for AppBuilder projects. This said, I will get back to you once a solution is found.

    Has there been any movement on supporting Universal Linking in Appbuilder? Looked in the forums and there wasn't much there.

    Hi,

    There isn't support for Universal Links in AppBuilder yet. There isn't that high demand for the feature and since it isn't straight forward to implement (supporting Cordova hooks or creating a new plugin from scratch), it hasn't been scheduled yet, due to more demanded features being in the backlog. 

    I added a feature request in the Telerik Platform feedback portal, which you can upvote here:
    Add support in AppBuilder for iOS Universal Links feature

    I also notified the development team that there are more people who need this feature, so they have it in mind when working on the road map.
