What is Evaluation Sequence?

When a user's request matches more than one Variation or Metric, Evaluation Sequence defines when the individual Variation is applied (or the Metric matches.) Variations and Metrics with lower sequence numbers are considered before those with higher sequence numbers. The Evaluation Sequence value must be within the range of -100 to 100.

By default, Metrics have an Evaluation Sequence of 10 and Variations, an Evaluation Sequence of 50. This means that SiteSpect counts Metrics before applying any Variations to the user's current request.

For Origin Factors, the Evaluation Sequence determines the order that the values appear in the Affinity Cookie.
