Hi, I'M Setting A

Hi,
I'm setting a USER PROPERTIES using the following code
task.set_user_properties(MY_THRESHOLD={"type": int, "value": 0.85}, )Whet is the correct way to retrieve the value?
using task.get_user_properties().get('MY_THRESHOLD').get('value') requires the conversion back to int
I'm sure I'm missing something

task.get_parameters and task.get_parameters_as_dict have the keyword argument cast which attempts to convert values back to their original type, but interestingly doesn't seem to work for properties:

` task = Task.init()
task.set_user_properties(x=5)
task.connect({"a":5})
task.get_parameters_as_dict(cast=True)

{'General': {'a': 5}, 'properties': {'x': '5'}} Hopefully would be a relatively easy extension of get_user_properties ` !

OutrageousSheep60 , it looks like it's not a bug. Internally x is stored as an int , however get_user_properties() casts it back as a string. You could open a github issue with a feature request for this 🙂

How would you use the

user properties

as part of an experiment?

I'm guessing to get the properties. I'm guessing this really depends on your needs / use-case

exactly - (that is how I used it in my initial code) - but if you have to convert it back to the original data type then something is broken...

Thx for investigating - What is the use case for such behavior ?

I played a bit with it and got to the value. OutrageousSheep60 , please tell me if this helps you 🙂

` >>> task.set_user_properties(x=5)
True

y=task.get_user_properties()
y
{'x': {'section': 'properties', 'name': 'x', 'value': '5'}}
y["x"]["value"]
'5' `

Yeah I see what you're saying. It doesn't keep it's type. This might be a bug.

You are getting a string - '5'
I want to get an int - 5
