User Info

Information about the user of your app can be useful for personalization and segmentation. For example, you might want to address push notifications to each user by name or you may want to segment a campaign to only users who have opted-in to receive marketing material. The UserInfo service provides an API for you to add information about the current user that will be sent to Rover’s servers and can be utilized for personalization purposes in the Campaigns app and segmentation purposes in the Audience app. You’ll access it through UserInfoInterface.

Setting Properties

You can set info about the current user on the UserInfo service using the update() method. The update() method has a single parameter – a closure with an argument of a copy of the currently set attributes as a hash. Mutate those attributes to add the fields you desire, and they’ll be merged into any other existing fields and values you have already set. The values are of type AttributeValue, which constrains the types that you may assign.

).update { attributes ->
    attributes["first_name"] = AttributeValue.Scalar.String("Sean")

Clearing Properties

In some cirucmstances you may wish to remove all properties associated with the current user. For example, if your app supports authentication and the user logs-out. To remove all user info call the clear() method on UserInfoInterface.
