What is ConfigCat?

ConfigCat allows the user to launch new features and change software configuration without (re)deploying code. ConfigCat SDKs enable easy integration with any web, mobile or backend applications.

Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

We use ConfigCat to manage feature flags across all our applications, from Native Apps to backend services, in all environments.
  • Fast reliable service
  • Simple yet powerful user interface
  • Logic based feature flag enablement/disablement
  • Increased reporting on where requests for flags come from and their status and their status. That would be very handy in the native app space with many customers using older versions.
ConfigCat is a highly flexible configuration management tool that, because of it's flexibility, can adapt to most use cases.

We use ConfigCat daily to quickly deploy to production and to be able to roll out our features to our users in a controlled manner. ConfigCat is also used for some operational toggling, giving access to certain features based on the authorized role. Meaning, as an example - our support organization have access to a wider range of features in our system
  • They have an intuitive UI
  • A very solid and reliable service
  • Great flexibility
  • Cannot come up with any

Currently, feature flags in desktop apps with future expansion towards webapps and mobile in combination with desktop apps. The desktop apps are a combination of WPF and UWP apps using. NET Framework and. NET Core ranging from 4.6 (Framework) to 6.0 (Core). Apps can either be fully on prem or leverage Azure and/or AWS.
  • Easy-to-use
  • Great pricing structure
  • Support
  • Documentation
  • Nothing at the moment
Time sensitive and/or high latency environments where you don't want to wait for retrieving the feature flag. ConfigCat queries are performed against a local copy so the query is instant.

We were in need of a decent experimentation tool and, in addition, a tool that also handles feature flagging (since they are very similar). In previous companies I managed, this was often built in-house. Still, in this scenario, we had quite a diversity of platforms between websites, mobile apps, and backend systems that implementing across all those would have been time-consuming. We needed to get something up and running quickly.
  • Lots of pre-built SDKs across a variety of environments and languages.
  • Enterprise features (2FA, SAML/SSO).
  • Customer support is top notch. Slack community quick to respond.
  • More complex segmentation rules (AND/OR)
  • First class support for experimentation (hold out/exclude groups)
  • Flag dependency/nesting
If you are looking for an experimentation/feature flag style tool that is quick to adopt and provides enough functionality for light/medium use cases, then this is the tool for you. Additionally, they are growing and expanding their functionality and feature set so they can grow alongside you and your needs. The publicly accessible roadmap is also a great benefit to see where time is being spent on which feature next.

We use ConfigCat to separate our deployments from our releases and to manage configuration for our clients. We also use it to de-risk our deployments, especially when there is a performance risk. It makes QA and testing simpler as QA is in charge of what is turned on/off). It has unlimited environments and seats, so we can comprehensively cover all of our many personas within the organization. The ConfigCat team is super helpful and responsive. There are many SDKs available and nice extensions. I am very happy we chose ConfigCat over the competitors.
  • Feature flagging(!!)
  • Environment Set up
  • Support
  • High performance at scale
  • Could use a React SDK
  • Having the Pro tier be more usable for normal Saas organizations by offering more environments.
We use this all across our product to allow us to be very agile and to decouple and de-risk our deployments from releases. It is excellent at identifying stale flags (called Zombie Flags in ConfigCat) and shows every place in the code they are used for safer and easier removal.

ConfigCat is very easy to do business with - responsive to feature requests and willing to help us onboard. The abundance of code samples on the site makes sure that we're doing things the right way. We're just starting out our journey with the product, but the model lines up very well with how we structure our products, projects, and teams.
  • Very fast interface
  • Excellent code samples & documentation
  • Good security model granularity
  • No automatic push for flag changes - have to write our own webhooks
  • No scheduling interface for flipping flags automatically on a schedule
  • Interface is a bit cluttered for people who are just flipping flags
The ConfigCat team was very responsive to setting up demos, walking us through the product, and making sure we were able to leverage it the way that we want. The few small gaps that we identified were already in the backlog and implemented pretty quickly.

The ConfigCat is the best approach for us because it allows changing configuration without deploying a new version of code. Also, it allows setting the percentage of the user that comes to a new version of code, which is really perfect for testing a new feature. Very friendly support, that are always ready to help you.
  • New feature testing
  • Feature flag
  • Dynamic config update
  • Possibility to have complex variables, like lists and maps, not just strings could be useful sometimes
New feature testing, dynamic config - awesome, I especially like the percentage.

There are quite a few solutions around for feature flags, ConfigCat was the best one for us because it had the best license model - you get the most for your money and it was comparable to similar solutions in all of its features as well - so we had the best of both worlds. One highlight for me though was the use of the Jira integration. I queried with the ConfigCat team as I wondered if there were any plans to integrate with the Jira support for feature flag engines that would allow us to search for features via JQL - there weren't but they went ahead and implemented them which was outstanding service.
  • Jira integration
  • Management interface
  • Simple integration in code

  • It's architecturally very simple
  • We've had excellent support from them
  • It's been very reliable
  • The UI is improving but is still a bit clunky
For most feature toggle use cases, it's hard to fault it.

The A/B testing functionality and user targeting features perhaps aren't as sophisticated as others, but on the whole it covers 90%+ of what we need.

We make use of ConfigCat to test new features in production in a controlled manner, enable the rollout of these new features on a per-tenant basis once testing has been completed and, should the need arise, rollback a feature if an unexpected issue is found.
  • Nicely designed and easy to use web frontend to manage the settings.
  • Unlimited number of user accounts allows everyone in the team to make changes.
  • It could be handy to have user accounts limited to just a select few feature flags.
  • A mobile app would be nice (although the website works fine).
If you have a bunch of configuration that you find yourself needing to make changes but to do that you need to deploy a new release, or your logging into servers, ConfigCat should help you to stop that.
They have a community Slack channel that is open to anyone. They always seem to have people in there, even over the weekends and are always happy to answer any questions you have,

ConfigCat is the first solution of its kind that I had ever tried and we use it on our production solution at our company. In terms of customer service they were super quick and kind, solving our questions and concerns in a very short time.

I'll continue to use their service to quickly change settings in our websites as well as our clients'.
  • We use it to de/activate translations at our website. By pressing a button we can hide the language selection in our navbar.
  • Adding more integrations
We use it to quickly de/activate configurations on our websites, thus showing/hiding different parts of our website without having to deploy changes.
They were super quick and extra kind every time we contacted them for support.
