A scope in Episerver Insight defines a logical grouping of profiles. So given this scenario:
Just a quick note to self on how to control access to the Episerver Insight UI.
Episerver Insight Profiles UI access
Access to the profiles section is allowed if any of the following is true:
The Episerver visitor group criterion that allows editors to define visitor groups depending on whether an end user is participating in an A/B test is now available for Episerver 11.
The package adds a new visitor group called “Participating in A/B test” as shown below:
Episerver has recently released Episerver Insight which is the user interface for viewing, filtering visitor profiles and creating segments. This relies on Episerver Profile store in order to store profile data.
This post describes how its possible to load a user profile and update some properties on it using the Episerver Profile Store API. As Episerver Profile store is a pure RESTful API it means developers can choose any way to interact with it. For this example RestSharp is used to connect to the API and uses Newtonsoft.Json to manipulate the data.

A new version of the cookie drop block for Episerver is now available on the Episerver Nuget feed that is compatible with Episerver 11.
Cookie drop block allows editors to publish a block that when used on a page drops a cookie on the user machine.
A new version of the cookie visitor group criteria is now available on the Episerver Nuget feed that is compatible with Episerver 11.
The package adds two new visitor groups called "Cookie exists" and "Cookie Value Equals". These visitor groups allow your site editors to personalise content based on whether a cookie exists or on the value contained within a cookie.
A new version of the Visitor Group Usage Viewer is now available on the Episerver Nuget feed that is compatible with Episerver 11.
The visitor group usage viewer adds a new component that shows the visitor groups that are used on the current content item when in Episerver edit mode. It also separately shows any content that's referenced on the current content item (such as blocks or pages in a content area) as this could also affect the rendering of the current piece of content:
How do I get it?
I've occasionally seen the requirement for tokenised content in Episerver. By tokenised I mean the ability to insert a token such as [ContactUsEmail] or [Telephone] site wide and have it populated based on values set at a site/section level. This allows site editors to set the value of a token once and have it populated across the site.
