Reset Test Device

Helps reset the test device added, to enable running new test cycles again using same device

Reset Test Device to clear Device Data

When you reset a device, the historical data created against that device on the analytics is de-attributed from the Device ID & is recorded with a placeholder email ID in its place.

Thus, after each reset, you device shall be treated as a fresh device – enabling you to run the test cycles without much fuss.


Full scale testing involves a plethora of test scenario. That requires us to run, re-run & again run similar scenarios with minor changes in data points or steps undertaken. In doing so we need the device parameters to be unaffected, hence it is most convenient to reuse the same device over and over again.

This API call shall reset the device for you when executed. Ideally this can also be done on the click of a button – this API is to facilitate any scope to automate much of the steps involved in large scale testing.
