Environments are used for separating data from different phases of your application development. Three Environments exist by default: Development, Staging, and Production.
The following should be taken into account with Environments:
Following actions can be taken with Environments:
Lookup Tables allow you to make a “lookup” of a value received in an Event, and store the returned value in a Data Field. This can be very useful in the case where you only send the id of an object of which you have more information offline, or you want to normalize data. There are some built-in Lookup Tables, for example for converting two-character country codes (e.g. DE) to country names (e.g. Germany). These cannot be modified. For custom use cases you can create new Lookup Tables.
Lookup Tables page and actions are presented in the following picture.
Select New Lookup Table. Page for creating new Lookup Table and its options are presented in the following picture.
Option 1: Enter records manually by entering records manually as presented in the following picture.

Platforms is legacy support and refers to the platforms on which your application runs on. For example, iOS, Android, or Web.
The current best practice to include Platform information to your metrics is to create an Application per Platform (e.g. My App - iOS).
If you track events from a user in platform A, and then track events with the same user id in platform B, those will be considered different users. If you wish to track your users across different platforms, they need to have the same UID, the om_platform parameter should be used to idenfity the platform of the user, and all the data should to a single Application (with API keys per Environment).
