User attributes are specific traits of a user, like an email, username, mobile, gender, etc.
This is crucial and helps in targeting users based on these attributes across devices or installs.
Implementing Login / Logout Mechanism for a User
Setting Unique ID in order to Login User :
- It's important to set the unique identifier when a user logs into your app. This is to unify the new user with an existing user, if any exists, and will help prevent creating unnecessary/stale users.
- Setting the Unique ID is a critical piece to tie a user across devices and installs/uninstalls as well across all platforms (i.e. iOS, Android, Windows, The Web). Set the attribute as soon as the user is logged in. A unique Identifier can be something like an email ID, a username (unique), or a database ID or any Backend generated identifier which can be used to uniquely identify the user.
- Do not set this for the user who not logged in.
Note: The following values are not allowed in the UniqueID field: "unknown", "guest", "null", "0", "1", "true", "false", "user_attribute_unique_id", "(empty)", "na", "n/a", "", "dummy_seller_code", "user_id", "id", "customer_id", "uid", "userid", "none", "-2", "-1", "2"
