Waking up a dead thread right after Halloween
We are experimenting with additionalProperties: true for our AB context, where we keep running experiments and the visitor’s allocation in Test and Control groups.
There are a few tests that we run all the time and those we explicitly define in the schema with an enumeration of the possible values, but the ability to launch a new experiment and start capturing in Snowplow without a schema change is enticing.
I was thinking of extracting the values from the raw JSON but it seems that after shredding ue_json / ue_properties does not make it to Redshift anymore (which makes perfect sense).
Are there any new thoughts or tooling in this regard? Honestly it is not a huge ordeal to introduce the AB experiment in the schema first, but bumping the AB context schema every time we run an experiment sounds like an unnecessary overhead.
