How to limit the number of times a user can pass through a feature gate in Statsig based on a count?

In Statsig, feature gates are designed to control access to features based on user attributes or conditions, not on the number of times a user has accessed a feature. However, you can achieve the desired functionality by implementing a custom solution in your application code.

To limit the number of times a user can pass through a feature gate based on a count, you would need to maintain the state and count the times a user has accessed a feature. This can be done by incrementing a count stored in local storage or any other suitable storage system in your application.

Once you have the count, you can use a Custom Field targeting rule on the Gate that uses a numeric comparison operator. This rule should be set up to compare the stored count with the desired limit. When initializing the SDK, pass your stored count into the user object.

Please note that this approach requires you to manage the count state in your own system, as Statsig does not provide built-in support for this type of use case.

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.
