Quickstart Guide

Before you connect with the Ignite Services API, complete the following tasks:

  • Obtain a ClientID from DT. Use the ClientID to identify your application in the DT environment.
  • Set up a test environment for Ignite Services. For more information about test environments, see How to Set Up Test Environment.

To quickly get started and interacting with DT Ignite via the Ignite Services API, use the following process:

  1. Add Client ID to Manifest
  2. Add Ignite files to your library
  3. Declare and create IgniteService
  4. Connect to Ignite Services
  5. Call API Methods
  6. Disconnect from Ignite Services

If you encounter errors during this process, use the following resources to help resolve and respond to errors:

Step 1: Add ClientID to the Manifest

Insert the ClientID in the meta-data of the AndroidManifest.xml file. The following code is an example of this task.

<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"

    <application ... >

		<!-- Example Client ID -->
	    	 android:value="52093f98-63a7-45b4-b9fb-191c685d6a40" />


Step 2: Add Ignite Files to Your Library

Add ignite-service-aidl-sdk.aar to your libs/ folder in your project. Or , if you have shared sources, import it as as a module.

Step 3: Declare IgniteService

Declare and create an instance of IIgniteService.kt:

lateinit var igniteService: IIgniteService

// ...

// After SDK is initialised the IgniteService instance is returned.
// It can also be retrieved later using IgniteServiceSdk.instance()
// NOTE: `clientSecret` can be empty for initial integration
igniteService = IgniteServiceSdk.init(context, clientSecret)


Step 4: Connect to Ignite Services

Call the connect(callback) method:

IgniteServiceSdk.instance().connect(object: IConnectionCallback {
     override fun onConnected() {
          // Connection with Ignite is established
          Toast.makeText(applicationContext, "Connected.", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()

	 override fun onAuthenticated() {
	      // Client is now able to call API methods
          Toast.makeText(applicationContext, "Authenticated.", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()

     override fun onDisconnected(message: String?) {
          Toast.makeText(applicationContext, "Disconnected from Ignite Service: $message", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()

// or



Step 5: Call API Methods

findViewById<Button>(R.id.version).setOnClickListener {
    val result = IgniteServiceSdk.instance().version()
    Toast.makeText(applicationContext, "SDK version: ${result?.sdkVersion}, Ignite version: ${result?.igniteVersion}", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()


Step 6: Disconnect from Ignite Services

Call disconnect() on lifecycle end to prevent unexpected behavior

// ...


// ...


Example: Full Integration

Below is an example class of the full integration using the Ignite Services Client SDK.

A fully integrated demo application is available on request for existing customers.  Please reach out to your support resource for access.

class MainActivity : AppCompatActivity(), IConnectionCallback {
    // Remember instance or you can call IgniteServiceSdk.instance()
    lateinit var igniteService: IIgniteService

    override fun onCreate(savedInstanceState: Bundle?) {

        igniteService = IgniteService(applicationContext)

        // Call remote function on button click
        findViewById<Button>(R.id.version).setOnClickListener {
            val result = igniteService.version()
            Toast.makeText(applicationContext, "SDK version: ${result?.sdkVersion}, Ignite version: ${result?.igniteVersion}", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()

        findViewById<Button>(R.id.install).setOnClickListener {
            val file = File("${requireContext().filesDir}", "fortnite.apk")
            val data = file.toUri().toString()
            igniteService.install(data, object : IResponseCallback<InstallationResponse, Error, InstallationProgress> {
                override fun onSuccess(result: InstallationResponse) {
                    Log.d("InstallApp","onSuccess(): taskId=${result.taskId}, appId=${result.applicationId}, package=${result.packageName}, partnerMetadata=${result.partnerMetaData}")

                override fun onError(error: Error) {
                    Log.d("InstallApp","onError(): message=${error.message}, code=${error.code}, partnerMetadata=${error.partnerMetadata}")

        // Other API methods

    override fun onConnected() {
        Toast.makeText(applicationContext, "Connected to Ignite Service", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()

    override fun onAuthenticated() {
        Toast.makeText(applicationContext, "Authenticated", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()

    override fun onDisconnected(message: String?) {
        Toast.makeText(applicationContext, "Disconnected from Ignite Service: $message", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show()

    override fun onDestroy() {


Troubleshooting Connections

If your Host App is unable to connect to Ignite, you may receive one of the following error messages:

Error Message Description
Connection failed to unknown reason Ignite is not present in the device.

Authentication Exception: Can not create session

Client ID, Client Secret, or package name does not match what was given for DT Configuration.
Authentication Exception Code -2 Host App signing certificate fingerprint does not match with what was provided for DT Configuration.


Best Practices

When developing your Host App, consider the following best practices:

  • Use a unique fingerprint for Load and Production environments.
  • Within each environment, use the same signing certificate for each version of the Host App.
  • Ensure there is an active connection before initializing installations.
  • Disconnect from any remote service when exiting the Host app.
