Deploy config change to "turn off" New Discussion Tool A/B test
Closed, ResolvedPublic


This ticket represents the work involved with deploying the config change necessary to "turn off" the New Discussion Tool A/B test that we "turned on" in T291308.


Now that the analysis of the A/B test is largely complete (T277825), the A/B test itself can now be disabled/turned off.

The New Topic Tool A/B test will be turned off during the week of 25 April 2022.


  • The A/B test that was enabled in T291308 is disabled
