Maxlength of string value in event segment and more questions

Could not find it in the docs.

  1. Does anyone know, what is the maximum length of a string value in an event segment entry? (Android SDK)
  2. Is it possible to configure this maximum length?
  3. Is it possible to recover an individual event (and its complete individual segmentation) as it was recorded from Mongo DB? Or are individual events irrecoverably split for analysis reasons?

    Regarding point #1 and #2. 

    With the latest released version (at this point 20.11.12) there are not length limits. Starting from 21.11.0 (next release) there will be a limit of 256 characters and it will have way to set that limit size during config.

  • Regarding question #3 I may have a principal misunderstanding of the use and meaning of a "segmentation". Is this only intended as a sort of category for events and not to transmit highly individual and diverse data (regarding "event_segmentation_value_limit" setting on API side). Is it correct that one segmentation key is per default limited to 1000 unique values?

  • Hi Marc,

    Regarding #3

    Yes, it can be done only using our Drill Plugin; And yes segmentation is not meant for high cardinality data for aggregated data (but you could omit it from aggregated data on the server and store it in granular drill data).
