How is the unique user ID determined in analytics?

  • End-userID can be generated and collected in three ways:
    • The default recommended: OS domain + username (Example: WALKMEJohn.Doe)
    • Hashed: MD5/SHA256 of end-users OS domain + username
      • Will keep content consistency but hide the actual user name
    • IDP integration
    • Randomized GUID
      • Will not keep consistency, the user is considered ‘new’ on every session.

If you choose to identify the end-users by their GUID, which is not remembered between WalkMe sessions (i.e., the same end-user will have a different GUID in each WalkMe launch), Insights won’t be able to identify an end-user as a unique entity.
