Cross posted on the Grasshopper3d site, David Rutten suggested I might get better answers here…
So I have some working code to successfully register a “hit” with google analytics when a user runs a solution that includes a plugin I wrote.
My next step is to figure out something I can use as a client ID or user ID.
This can be any string or a UUID, with a few conditions (in order of most important to least):
It cannot be personally identifiable information or any form of sensitive information
It would be the same for any given user, even if they close and then reopen rhino/ grasshopper (so system based, not session-based or random)
It would be different for different users
I just came across this function in the docs for V6 RhinoCommon:
It seems like the guys at McNeel are making this super easy in Rhino 6, but the function doesn’t exist in Rhino 5! In the meantime, while working with Rhino 5, what is something that can be used for a user id/ client id? And/or what does the function in Rhino 6 use?
