How to Manage Anoid from Public Object?

Once the Anoid plugin is launched on your site(s), you can access Anoid public object through console (JS code) — here you can get anonymous and authenticated visitors information as per below.

 

To get anonymous visitor information, use the following commands:

anoid.getVisitorId()
anoid.getRecognitionId()

To get authenticated user information, use the following commands:

anoid.getAccountInfo()

Other than that you will be able to manage Anoid plugin Debug mode or Subscribe to any event fired by Anoid.

To subscribe to the event, use the following command:

anoid.listenTo(‘visitorIdResolved’,function())

anoid.listenTo(‘recognitionIdResolved’,function())

anoid.listenTo(‘accountInfoResolved’,function())

 

To subbscribe to any other Anoid event, use the following command, replacing "EventName" with your target event:

anoid.listenTo(‘EventName’,function())

To manage debug mode, use the following commands:

anoid.debug.start()
anoid.debug.stop()

You can use debug mode to get more information about both anonymous and authorized visitors of the current site and facilitate testing around it using built in features.
Debug mode exposes:
  • VisitorId and of the current Anonymous Visitor
  • FingerprintId of the current Anonymous Visitor
  • AccountId of Authenticated User
Debug mode allows to:
  • Manage/edit local storage and window objects
  • Clear browser cache
  • Log out current User
  • Reset current Visitor ID and Visitor IP
