Question regarding case sensitivity when building a segment (or filtering)

Avatar

Level 2

Are segment definitions case sensitive?

For instance if I were to add a "Tracking Code starts with..." definition, would I need to put in 'abcd' and 'ABCD' and all the other possible outcomes?

Same question goes for when filtering the breakdowned results.

 

Also if so or if not so, could you please explain the logic behind it?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi @hyejik65885166 ,

In general, Segment definitions or filters largely depends on the case sensitivity of the used variables and both prop and evars are not case sensitive. In your example, "Tracking code starts with...'abcd' " will return values of all cases.

Evar Case sesitivity: https://experienceleague.adobe.com/docs/analytics/admin/admin-tools/conversion-variables/conversion-...

 

PS: Tracking code variable works like an eVar.
