Hello Again I would appreciate some help to understand something, I see that we have the possibility of using forceVariation method but I wonder how it exactly works. Does it force the variation for the feature for all users? Can we force a variation per users? In this case we would split the traffic, I imagine this is possible I just could not find the correct function there yet I think.

If you were to check in code with forceVariation() it would serve that variation to all users
What are you trying to do? splitting by specific groups?

That is what I thought exactly. To make it simple, we would dictate which group each user is, can we do that?

sure, you can do that via attributes
how many users are we talking about?

To give you a number lets say 24k total

okay, how would you like to split them?

we have a business rule here that we would use, if they have done an action or not

is that data available to the SDK?
r

yeap, we could send it there

so I would create a custom attribute, probably boolean, and target a feature using that attribute

but then how would this affect the traffic split? I do not think this would work the way we are expecting

do you want to do it as an experiment?
r

rhythmic-chef-84815

12/02/2022, 7:35 AM
when we use a target attribute, don't we basically say which users participate in the experiment and which don't?
f

12/02/2022, 7:36 AM
ooh, okay - are the users who do this action to be included in the experiment?
r

rhythmic-chef-84815

12/02/2022, 7:36 AM
all users are, we want to force the variation based on this action

that will mess up the reliability of A/B test

That is exactly what I was afraid, but in any case, do you guys support that already?

there are a few ways to do this - would you like to hop on a quick call?
r

rhythmic-chef-84815

12/02/2022, 7:40 AM
Sure
how do you want to do it?
