Thank you for reporting this bug, @Dhruvi!

I was able to verify that the v5 of the Android tracker does not track the user ID set in SubjectConfiguration. We will release a quick patch release to fix this bug. I will update here when the patch release is out.

We have just released version 5.0.1 of the Android tracker that fixes the bug with user ID set in subject configuration not being added to events. Here is the release announcement. It might take a few hours for the Maven repository to update and show the package.

Thanks again for reporting this, @Dhruvi!
