UID Configuration

You can use this behavior to extract unique and static identifiers (UID) of vehicles from live traffic.

How it works

Extracting UIDs from client header names or query string parameters of client requests enables logging traffic data for the following reports:

  • Bandwidth | Cars report
  • Individual Vehicle report
  • OTA Updates API reporting

πŸ“˜

Remember that you're responsible for maintaining the security of any data that may identify individual users.

You can configure the UID configuration behavior in the default rule or add any number of the UID configuration behaviors in separate custom rules to better control UID extraction from live traffic.
