(Documentation error) Collecting deviceData only returns "correlation_id" but not "device_session_id"

See original GitHub issue

General information

  • SDK/Library version: 1.30.1
  • Environment: Sandbox
  • Browser and OS: macOS Big Sur, latest versions of Safari, Firefox, and Chrome

Issue description

Dear Braintree folks,

I’m testing collecting device data for better fraud detection. I use your Drop-in module, version 1.30.1 (latest as of today; 2021-06-22).

In my sandbox, I have “Fraud Protection” enabled (not the “Advanced”). As far as I know, I do not have anything configured for “Kount”, which I even think it’s deprecated?

I’m following the instructions here to the letter:

When I set the dataCollector field to true (in dropin.create), I do receive in the payload a field "deviceData". However, this stringified object only has the "correlation_id" value. I do not receive anything else, in particular I do not get any "device_session_id". Moreover, when I check the transaction in braintree sandbox GUI, the interface tells me that indeed no device data was collected.

The strange thing, however, is that if I set dataCollector = {kount: true} (in dropin.create), I do eventually receive a "deviceData" field, which also has the expected "device_session_id" value.

Is this expected? What am I doing wrong?

More info

Even in this CodePen example prepared by you, I observe the same behavior:

  • With no dataCollector field, I do not receive any payload’s deviceData (expected).
  • With dataCollector: true, I do receive the field deviceData, but it only has inside the correlation_id and no the device_session_id (wrong?)
  • With dataCollector: {kount: true}, I receive deviceDatawith everything includingdevice_session_id` (???)
  • With dataCollector: {kount: false}, again I receive deviceDatawith onlycorrelation_id, no device_session_id` (???)

I agree the documentation could use some updating. I’ll re-open this issue until we can get it fixed up.

Correct, you should only be seeing a correlation_id in the device data if you are not using Kount. (which at this point should only be used by a small set of merchants who have been using it for a long time)

This is all expected. device_session_id is only for Kount.

PayPal’s advanced fraud tooling is enabled by default with Data Collector, so you’ll get the correlation_id param unless you explicitly opt out of it with dataCollector: { paypal: false, kount: true }
