Hi everyone, I've been using Growthbook feature-flagging, more as a way to configure my projects(a replacement for my .env files basically). For example, what index to search in, when a search request comes in, or what filters to show each customer. Do you think this use case is logical, or is there a better way to do this, and I'm just trying to use Growthbook for everything? I was thinking, because Growthbook provides an api, i can also build an interface that allows even non-technical people in the company to configure all our projects, without waiting on the developers.

that use case is pretty common - using GrowthBook, or any feature flagging tool, as remote configuration
with the customizable permissions, you can restrict who can make changes to production (or any environment), but still have them submit draft changes for someone with permission to approve

that is very nice. thanks. the only problem for me is that because a lot of our configurations are json text, it's not really that readable, especially for people who don't often use it. Just wondering, is Growthbook planning to implement an interface that also addresses this configuration use case directly?

yes
we have that on our roadmap to support a json schema
which would also allow you to have an editor for those fields
and support validation as well
