I don't think that warning is particularly helpful. I'd ignore it.

'activity_id' is actually the activity instance id, which differs
whenever you start a fresh copy of the activity, so that's not what
you want. But using the 'activity' key should work fine, since this is
your activity's bundle id (e.g. 'my.organization.MyActivity'):
