Content Security Policy (CSP)

Content Security Policy (CSP) serves as a safeguard against code injection attacks, where harmful content is executed within a trusted webpage. However, this security measure may interfere with the functionality of Survicate on your site. If you use CSP, you should update it with the following directives to ensure Survicate's surveys work effectively without compromising security:

Identify users

Each time a user answers a Survicate survey they're assigned a unique, anonymous ID. For most companies it makes sense to have these responses identified. To do so, you can pass user IDs and attributes from your website or web app.

Here's a sample implementation:

User attributes

Survicate lets you also pass other attributes. Attributes provide deeper insight into collected feedback. You can use them to target the right audiences and filter survey results. Some example attributes that can be passed to Survicate are:

  • Company name
  • Subscription name
  • Signed up date

User attributes can be seen on their profile in the respondents tab.

Supported Attribute Types

  • String: Any textual data, e.g. company names, user name, etc.
  • Numbers: Includes integers and decimals, both positive and negative.
  • Boolean: True or false values.
  • Date: Accepts date objects created using Date() constructor: new Date('1995-12-17T03:24:00') or dates in ISO 8601 format (e.g., YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SSZ).

Important to note:

  • The max length of a string is 255 characters.
  • Strings should not be enclosed within the following characters: , *, [], %, ~, --, $ (e.g., 'name':'$john$').
  • Attribute names are case sensitive.

To pass user attributes to Survicate and use them for survey targeting, you should define these attributes when initializing the Survicate. Please note that attribute names are case-sensitive, whereas attribute values are not.
