Hi there.

my Optimizely X accounts expired in last year and i can`t see new functions anymore.

so i am wondering the differences between feature flags and traffic allocations.

Hi JacobW,

 

Thank you for sharing your query in Optiverse!

 

Feature flags let you turn certain functionality on and off without deploying new code. This allows for better control over the full lifecycle of features. You can toggle a feature off to release code quickly without exposing it to users. You can create a new feature and manage its rollout under the Features tab, or build a feature test in the Experiments tab.

 

Whereas the Traffic Allocation feature simply allows you to set the percentage of traffic that enters a particular experiment.

 

For further details on feature flags in Optimizely X Full Stack, please review the below developer documentation:
https://docs.developers.optimizely.com/full-stack/docs/use-feature-flags

 

For more details regarding traffic allocation and experiment bucketing in Optimizely X Full Stack, please kindly review the below developer documentation as well:
https://docs.developers.optimizely.com/full-stack/docs/how-bucketing-works-in-full-stack

 

I hope the information above helps you identify the differences between these two features.

 

Kind regards
