Hybrid tests are a mix between the “Classic A/B tests” and the “Server-side A/B tests”.
They allow you to run both front-end and back-end tests.
Create a hybrid test
From the back-office
From the back-office, go to “New project”:
A pop-in opens, select “Server-side A/B test”:
Select a type of test. You can choose between two types of tests:
- 100 % server side
- Hybrid, both server and client-side
In the case of a “hybrid test,” the test is injected into the kameleoon.js application file, which is not the case for the purely server-side tests.
Edit the test From the graphic editor
Edit a variation
For the Server-side tests, you can’t edit variations from the graphic editor.
In the case of the hybrid tests, you can edit the variations like the Classic A/B tests (via the editor or via the code): edit elements of a variation, add new elements on a variation.
As for classic A/B tests, you can access targeting options.
However, targeting is not server-side. Configuring a targeting on a hybrid test is useful in the case of integration of a third party tool because it allows you to send data to this tool.
Implement the test
After launching your test, a pop-in displays the IDs you need to implement in the code of your website:
