Pass in audience attributes

This topic describes possible user attribute values you can send to Optimizely Feature Experimentation through the Optimizely Feature Experimentation Android SDK.

You can pass strings, numbers, Booleans, and null as user attribute values. If you want to target audiences based on the version of your application that they're using, you can also pass in a string formatted as a semantic version, then define a version audience condition in the app. The examples below show how to pass in attributes.

val attributes: MutableMap<String, Any> = HashMap()
attributes["device"] = "iPhone"
attributes["lifetime"] = 24738388
attributes["is_logged_in"] = true
attributes["application_version"] = "4.3.0-beta"

val user = optimizelyClient.createUserContext("user123", attributes)
val decision = user!!.decide("FLAG_KEY_HERE")
Map<String, Object> attributes = new HashMap<>();
attributes.put("device", "iPhone");
attributes.put("lifetime", 24738388);
attributes.put("is_logged_in", true);
attributes.put("application_version", "4.3.0-beta");

OptimizelyUserContext user = optimizelyClient.createUserContext("user123", attributes);
OptimizelyDecision decision = user.decide("FLAG_KEY_HERE");



During audience evaluation, note that if you don't pass a valid attribute value for a given audience condition—for example, if you pass a string when the audience condition requires a Boolean, or if you simply forget to pass a value—then that condition will be skipped. The SDK logs will include warnings when this occurs.
