6785 (VivContext User ID Non-Internal)

In order to make Bixby more secure, we're deprecating $vivContext.userId, and introducing $vivContext.bixbyUserId to access user context information. This new secure user ID can be used to persist user state or implement analytics. This ID is tied to the user's account and will be the same across all devices.


To access $vivContext.bixbyUserId, you must request the bixby-user-id-access permission. See permissions for more details.
