GeoFence Push

Pre-requisites for Geofence

To use geofencing, your app must request the following:

  • ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION
  • ACCESS_BACKGROUND_LOCATION if your app targets Android 10 (API level 29) or higher

🚧

Note

For Geofence pushes to work your Application should have location permission and Play Services' Location Library should be included.

Refer to the documentation for more details.

SDK Installation

MavenBadgeMavenBadge

Add the below dependency in the app/build.gradle file.

implementation("com.moengage:geofence:$sdkVersion")

replace $sdkVersion with the appropriate SDK version

Note: The geofence artifact should be compatible with the moe-android-sdk artifact you have already added. Make sure you check the version compatibility table below and pick the right version for your application

Configure Geofence

Add the Geofence configuration to the MoEngage.Builder while initializing the SDK using the configureGeofence()

val moEngage = MoEngage.Builder(this, "XXXXXXXX")
        .configureGeofence(GeofenceConfig(isGeofenceEnabled, isBackgroundSyncEnabled))
        .build()
MoEngage.initialise(moEngage)
MoEngage moEngage = new MoEngage.Builder(this, "XXXXXXXXXXX")
            .configureGeofence(new GeofenceConfig(isGeofenceEnabled, isBackgroundSyncEnabled))
            .build();
MoEngage.initialise(moEngage);

Geofence Hit Callback

MoEngage SDK optionally notifies the application whenever a Geo-Fence is triggered. If required the application can consume the trigger and ask the SDK not to process it, alternatively, the application can just use the callback for logging/analytical purposes and let MoEngage process the trigger.
To get the callback application needs to implement OnGeofenceHitListener API Reference and register this listener in the Application class's onCreate() using MoEGeofenceHelper.getInstance().addListener().

Version Compatibility

The geofence artifact/module is dependent on the Core SDK or moe-android-sdk artifact/module.
Based on the version of the Core SDK you are using choose the right version of the Geofence module.
