Userld missing matters?

Include the following details while filing a bug report (edit as applicable):

  • Issue category: Playback
  • Device type & OS version: none
  • Host machine & OS version: Mac
  • Issue Environment : Unity Remote
  • Xcode version: none
  • ARDK version:3 beta4
  • Unity version:2021.3.30f1

Bug reproduction steps:
When playing the game, the Console has a message that “Userld is missing. please set a unique ld using PrivacyData.Userld for data management purposes.” after I enabled the Playback option and set its path to the Sample Playback Recording folder

Does this error affect any Lightship’s functionalities?

Thank you.

I get the error too but haven’t noticed any adverse effects anywhere else yet in the project (even when building and testing on device)

Hi Merijn,
Thank you for letting me know. I will go ahead disregarding it.


Hi Alan,

UserIds are unique identifiers set by developers for managing end-user data. While you aren’t required to set the userId to make use of Lightship, it’s recommended when you are publishing your app to be in compliance with privacy laws such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in Europe. For more information, please visit our ARDK and Data Privacy section in the Lightship 3.x documentation.

Kind Regards,
Maverick L.
