Hi all, I have a couple of question about
stopped
experiments : 1. When I stop an experiment flagging it as
Winner
, the remote config properly returns the property
force
for this stopped experiment, specifying the variation ID that won. Thanks to this, I can display the winning variation to all my users meanwhile I clean the code from this experiment. But for all other results (
Lost
,
Did not finish
,
Inconclusive
) there is not
force: O
on the CDN remote config. Is there a reason explaining that? 2. Why when an experiment is stopped,
groups
are removed from the remote config? Because while we clean the code after the experiment has stopped, we still want to deliver the appropriate variation only to the targeted groups. Despite the experiment has stopped.

hi Emmanuel
let me take a look at the code
🙌 1
for 1, you are correct. I can make a PR for the 'lost' state, but I'm not sure we can draw conclusions about which variation to 'force' if an experiment is 'did not finish' or 'inconclusive'
for 2, I'll make a pull request for that too- its a simple change and not sure why we only want to return it for running experiments.
we should be able to get these out tomorrow assuming @future-teacher-7046 agrees

For 1, the SDKs ignore experiments which are stopped and did not win. So it will always return variation 0 and
inExperiment
= false in that case. We could have it explicitly force variation 0 to make that behavior more clear.
