Integrating on your native mobile application

Integration with native mobile applications is done through web view, you will need to host an HTML page which contains your embed code and open a web view to this page. There are many approaches to integrating native and web applications across different mobile operating systems, but any integration will involve the following steps:

  1. Host your embed code (find your Embed code under Configure > Organization > Site Details) in an HTML page served over HTTPS. For example,
  2. Add the domain to the list of permitted domains for your site under Configure > Organization > Site Details
  3. Create a web view in your native application which points to this URL
  4. Pass an SSO access token through to the embed code to log in your user. See Single Sign On for information on how to generate an SSO token. There are multiple ways to pass data from a native application to a web view, one method is to encode the access token in a query parameter on the URL hash (ex. and retrieve the token from the embed code. You can then pass through the accessToken option passed to createStreamEmbed:
  const urlParams = new URLSearchParams(window.location.hash.replace("#", "?"));
  const accessToken = urlParams.get("accessToken");

      id: "coral_thread",
      autoRender: true,
      accessToken: accessToken

note: Example URL uses a hash (#) instead of question mark (?) to prevent access token from being logged.

This will initialize the Coral stream with a logged-in user.

  1. You will need to use the same method to pass a Story ID or Story URL to the embed code using the storyID or storyURL options passed to createStreamEmbed. See CMS Integration for more details.
