Do I need to create a feature in order to run an A/A test or can I just start an experiment with 2 control groups without any feature?

Either is fine
though an A/A test should be as close to how you’re going to do A/B tests in reality, to make sure everything works

is it necessary to add an activation metric to a feature then? Or would it be enough to use targeting conditions like a URL in order to make sure users are included in the experiment?

activation metrics are usually not included in an a/a test - but can be. I think targeting is enough
more likely to break there.- activation metrics are done report side, not implementation side- though if you’re missing that metric, you’re report won’t generate
