  • Updated
  • Optimizely Feature Experimentation

After connecting your Feature 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 feature is in beta. Apply on the Optimizely beta signup page or contact your Customer Success Manager.

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
  • A link to the Optimizely Experiment Results page
