Enabling SessionCam for Optimizely Classic or Optimizely X

To enable the integration you will need to be a Product Admin on your account, if you're not then please do just email and our support team will be more than happy to help you out. 

Enabling the integration is as simple as switching the toggle on Optimizely from Disabled, to Enabled. Once this is enabled SessionCam will automatically start to send the Experiment and Variation information across to SessionCam as a Custom Variable. You can find information on filtering these below.

To see the friendly names for your Experiments and Variations you may need to head into your account settings in Optimizely, under the Implementation section you will want to uncheck the "Mask descriptive names in project code and third-party integrations", if this setting is not changed the integration will become difficult to use as you will not be able to see the differences in variations on your experiments

In order to set this up please the following instructions:

  1. Log into SessionCam
  2. Expand the "Manage" section in the navigation menu
  3. Click "Account Settings"
  4. Click the tab titled "Integrations"
  5. Enable Optimizely



Viewing your Optimizely experiments in SessionCam

Once you have enabled the integration and started the experiment, go to your SessionCam account and click the Recordings tab. You can find a tutorial on filtering Optimizely experiments below.

To start filtering for your Optimizely A/B Tests you first need to add a new filter

Simply click on the dropdown menu to select the filter.

From the dropdown list select <span class=""><i><b>Optimizely</b></i></span>

On the next list you will see a list of the Optimizely Experiment names that you have set up. Click <span class=""> on the name you want to filter for</span>

From the next dropdown you will want to select the "is" operator. This will allow you to then filter between the different variation names/identifiers.

The next dropdown menu will give you the list of variations stored against the experiment. You can simply filter by this variation identifier.

Simply click apply to add this filter to your recordings, heatmaps, or alerts.
