Telemetry reporting is enabled by default. We use the data we receive to inform our decisions and to help us make a better product. Self-hosted customers can opt-out of sending telemetry by navigating to Configuration ➜ Telemetry in Octopus.

When the Telemetry Reporting option is enabled, Octopus will make a secure HTTPS request containing the following data.

VersionThe current Octopus Deploy version number that you are running.
Installation IDA GUID that we generate when Octopus is installed. This GUID is simply a way for us to get a rough idea of the number of installations that exist in the wild, and which versions people are using, so we can make decisions about backwards compatibility support.
Telemetry payloadConfiguration and usage information helps us when making decisions about the product. For example, we expected users to only have a handful of machines, but the statistics tell us that some customers have over 900; we now take that into account when designing the user experience.

Please do consider enabling Telemetry Reporting. We look at the data every week, and it really does help us to make a better product.

Be assured that names, descriptions, URI’s, and so on are never included. You can download a preview of the data that will be sent by clicking on the Download Preview button on the Configuration ➜ Telemetry page. You can also learn more about Octopus and data privacy in our GDPR page.
