Long-Term Feature Flags: Use Cases & Best Practices

In many cases feature flags are used beyond a product release or singular event. Long-term flags are switches that you intend to leave in your code indefinitely, and unlike short-term flags, they aren’t technical debt. Long-term flags are an essential part of your system architecture—they can be used to set subscriber tiers, operate as part of a circuit-breaker pattern, or manage the interaction with third-party APIs. Designing your long-term flags is similar to specifying the feature you are controlling, and you may want to use the same process.
