Statsig FAQs

How to get currently active experiments using JavaScript in the browser console without knowing their name and override group IDs?

To retrieve currently active experiments using JavaScript in the browser console, you can use the Statsig.getExperiment or Statsig.getLayer methods. However, these methods require you to know the name of the experiment or layer. There is no documented method to retrieve all active experiments without knowing their names.

For group overrides, there is no documented method to retrieve group IDs directly. However, you can use the Statsig.overrideConfig method to override the value of a specific experiment for a specific user. The value you provide should match the structure of the experiment's parameters. Here is an example:

javascript Statsig.overrideConfig("a_config_or_experiment_name", { key: "value" }, "a_user_id"); In this case, { key: "value" } should match the structure of the parameters for the experiment you're trying to override. There is no documented way to override groups directly using group IDs.

If you're unsure about the structure of the experiment's parameters or need further assistance, it is recommended to reach out to the Statsig team for more specific guidance.

Please note that it may not be possible to override the group. You can only override the config object that's returned by a getExperiment call.

At Notion, we're continuously learning what our users value and want every team to run experiments to learn more. It’s also critical to maintain speed as a habit. Statsig's experimentation platform enables both this speed and learning for us.

We evaluated Optimizely, LaunchDarkly, Split, and Eppo, but ultimately selected Statsig due to its comprehensive end-to-end integration. We wanted a complete solution rather than a partial one, including everything from the stats engine to data ingestion.

We only had so many analysts. Statsig provided the necessary tools to remove the bottleneck. I know that we are able to impact our key business metrics in a positive way with Statsig. We are definitely heading in the right direction with Statsig.
