Hi ! I'm seeing this when trying to add a new experiment -- with the same featureId that's already used in another experiment, but pointing to a different datasource, but following the wizard and i see this warning during saving
Copy code
Warning: An experiment with that id already exists. To continue anyway, click 'Save' again.
I'm wondering whether this is a safe thing to continue. I don't want to disrupt an existing-running-experiment that shares the same featureId. I assume this is safe to continue, because it should be just querying metrics, please cmiiw ?

Hi Albert! That sounds right to me. This warning could probably be more descriptive, but you shouldn't disrupt the running experiment. Are you using GrowthBook for feature flagging as well or just experiment analysis?

Pardon @helpful-application-7107 for the late reply, was in a fever for several days there. haha. Oh it turns out i could actually interrupt an existing experiment by adding a new experiment sharing the same experimentId ? I've always assumed that the new experiment will only pointing a new datasource, from which the metrics will do queries on, and thus can co-exist without affecting one another ? And it's a yes to your question, we're using both feature flagging + experiment at the moment. 🙏

Yeah, you're right. Sorry, my statement above could have been clearer. What you're doing SHOULD BE OK so long as the datasources are separate and each experiment rule in your feature is tracking to the right datasource.
