  • Optimizely Web Experimentation

After connecting your Web Experimentation project to your instance of Experiment Collaboration, you can link your experiment to a hypothesis in Experiment Collaboration. Linking an experiment lets you reference your real-time experiment data and orchestrate your whole experimentation program from one place. 

This linked experiment information includes:

  • Status (running, paused, and so on).
  • Type of experiment (A/B test, multi-armed bandit optimization, and so on).
  • Run dates.
  • Variations.
  • Audiences.
  • Traffic allocation.
  • Metrics.
  • Link to the Optimizely Experimentation Results page.
