This topic explains how to make other changes to your feature flags in the flag's Settings tab.

A feature flag's Settings tab lets you change flag settings, including the name and description of the flag.

The fields in the Settings tab do the following things:

Field NameDescription
MaintainerThe flag maintainer is the team member who's primarily responsible for the flag. By default, the Maintainer is set to the member who created the flag, but you can assign any member of your team as the maintainer for a particular flag.
NameThe feature flag's name. You can change it here.
DescriptionThe feature flag's description. You can change it here.
TagsTags are labels that help you categorize flags. They're especially helpful for managing flag permissions with custom roles. For example, you can tag flags with marketing flags or devOps tags, and then use these tags to determine who has read or write access for the flag.
Make this flag available to the client-side SDKYou must make feature flags available to the client-side SDK before they can be used in variation calls on the front-end. If you request a feature flag that is not available, you'll receive the default value for that flag. If you want flags marked as available to the client-side SDK by default, you can check the "Make new flags available to the client-side (JavaScript) SDK by default" in the Settings page. Click the Edit button just above the project table to edit this project specific setting.
This is a permanent flagYou can mark flags permanent if they're intended to exist in your codebase long-term (e.g. a flag that's used to enable a site-wide maintenance mode). We will not prompt you to remove permanent flags, even if one variation has been rolled out to all of your users.
Flag keys can't be changed
In addition to the descriptors, every flag has a unique key which you set during flag creation. The key cannot be edited after the flag is created.

Sending detailed event information

Detailed events require Data Export

This setting is only visible to customers using Data Export. Data Export is only available to customers on our enterprise plans. If you're interested in learning more about our enterprise plans, contact sales@launchdarkly.com.

Flag evaluation events are summarized by default to minimize data use.

If you use Data Export, you can enable it to send detailed event data for a given flag. Unlike other flag settings on this page, you can adjust this setting for each environment in the project.

To learn more, read Data Export.
