Hi! For a given aliased value
4242
pointing to a distinct ID (
abc-123-foo-bar
) from Mixpanel, we want to
track
a server event using the aliased value. However, that seems to create a new profile with the id
4242
. Is it supposed to work this way? We were expecting the event to go to the actual existing profile (
abc-123-foo-bar
) instead of creating a new profile. We use the [track endpoint](https://developer.mixpanel.com/reference/track-event) with server side authentication and setting the
properties.distinct_id: 4242
. How can we track this event directly into the Mixpanel original profile (
abc...
) instead of creating a new profile, since
4242
points to
abc
?
