dw.customer.CustomerGroup
CustomerGroups provide a means to segment customers by various criteria. A merchant can then provide different site experiences (e.g. promotions, prices, sorting rules) to each customer segment. Customer groups can consist of either an explicit list of customers or a business rule that dynamically determines whether a customer is a member. The former type is called "explicit" and the latter type is called "dynamic".
  • Explicit customer group: Consists of an explicit list of customers. Only registered customers can be member of such a group. isRuleBased==false.
  • Dynamic customer group: Memberships are evaluated by a business rule that is attached to the customer group. Registered as well as anonymous customers can be member of such a group. isRuleBased==true.

Note: this class might allow access to sensitive personal and private information, depending on how you segment your customers and the names given to your custoemer groups. Pay attention to appropriate legal and regulatory requirements when developing with this data.
