In order to better help us support our self-hosting customers, Tines installations send a limited amount of metadata about themselves back to us, starting in version 5.0.0. This includes the current version of the instance, and its active feature flags. This data helps us diagnose issues faster, and better understand how features are used.
To disable this telemetry or see the data being sent, you can visit the
/admin/telemetry path of your instance, e.g.
tines.company.com/admin/telemetry. The data shown on that page is the exact data sent to Tines every hour when telemetry is enabled.
If you are planning to upgrade to version 5.0.0 or higher, and want telemetry to be disabled in advance of the upgrade, you can visit the
/admin/feature_flags path of your instance and enable the
telemetry_disabled feature flag.
When telemetry is enabled, data will be sent to the domain
[hq.tines.io](http://hq.tines.io) once every hour. You may need to allow requests to this domain in your network infrastructure to allow the data to be sent successfully.
We include your instance's domain in the metadata to allow us to identify which instance the data is coming from. If you want to provide a more specific identifier here, you can set the
TELEMETRY_ID environment variable in your Tines instance.
