Hi,

 

We see different behaviors regarding aliases and we would like to know more about how it works.

Here are the different behavior that we see:

1- If we set a user id, sometimes the alias is set as the App User ID, sometimes the App User ID stays the RCAnonymous id but the alias is there when we look at the user aliases. What is the logic?

2- If we set multiple aliases, how RevenueCat decide which one to use as the App User ID?

 

Thank you,

When there are multiple aliases, which one is sent to Amplitude?

Integrations will use the “last seen” alias as the App User ID - so whichever App User ID was most recently active in the app.

When multiple App User IDs are aliased together, any of those App User IDs will be treated as the same going forward so it doesn’t matter which one is used as the App User ID - they will all result in the same subscription status.

Thank you for your response but it seems like only one is sent to third party integration like Amplitude.
