Hi Everyone, I just started with Growthbook and I am mainly interested in feature flag only. I am confused with the Hierarchy/connection between Projects, Environments, feature flags and SDK connections. Can someone please explain, what is the connection and dependency between all these? thanks in advance!

You'll want to create feature flags to start. Environments are ways to support different values for a given feature in different contexts. By default, we give you 'development' and 'production' environments. SDK connections are how your SDK clients connect with Growthbook. You can modify the SDK connection to ensure you get the optimal payload you need. Some users want to minimize their payload to decrease size and latency. Projects are a way to organize feature flags and experiments. They are usually for larger orgs who have multiple teams working within GrowthBook. Let me know if you have any other questions

If there are 3 environments, 1 project, 10 feature flags and 1 SDK connection, During SDK connection it will ask for me to choose which environment, so 1 SDK connections = 1 environment or can we connect to all 3 environment in one single connection ? How does this work ?

It's 1 SDK connection per environment
