New Project Code Settings and JavaScript Configuration Options

We’ve heard feedback lately that our customers want more control over what is included in the JavaScript file that contains experiment configuration data (such as targeting criteria and meta data like the name of the experiment).


In order to give you more control we’ve launched three new settings, grouped under “Project Code Settings”. You can find them by clicking “Project Settings” on the Dashboard. 


  1. Masking Descriptive Names - This option masks the descriptive names for experiments, variations, audiences, sections, and segments with numerical IDs.
  2. Force Variation Shortcut - This option prevents anyone from using a URL parameter to display a specific variation.
  3. Draft and Paused Experiments - This option will exclude your draft and paused experiments from being visible in the source code.

You can find details about theses settings in our knowledge base article here
