When calling the identify method, do we need to send all of the user traits?

At least from the server side, when we need to update a specific user trait, do we need to send all traits in the `identify` method or can we update just the one trait with the new value?

Our system is separated into multiple services, it is not feasible to send all the traits at any time.

I haven't found anything in the documentation against such practice, but I haven't seen mention of whether it is okay as well.

  • Hi Danny, thanks for reaching out!

    You are right with your assumption that there is no need to send all the traits in the identify method every time. You can simply send the one trait you want to update. 
    For more information on the identify call please see our docs as well as our guide on best practices for identifying users.

    Hope this helps!
