FAQ: Telemetry

FAQ: Telemetry

Why do you collect data?

Salesforce collects usage data and metrics to help us improve Salesforce Extensions for VS Code.

What data is collected?

Salesforce collects anonymous information related to the usage of the extensions, such as which commands were run, as well as performance and error data.

How do I disable telemetry reporting?

If you don’t wish to send usage data to Salesforce, you can set the salesforcedx-vscode-core.telemetry.enabled setting to false.

On Windows or Linux, select File > Preferences > Settings. On macOS, select Code > Preferences > Settings. Then, to silence all telemetry events from the VS Code shell and disable telemetry reporting, add the following option.

"salesforcedx-vscode-core.telemetry.enabled": false

IMPORTANT: This option requires a restart of VS Code to take effect.

NOTE: We also respect the global telemetry setting telemetry.enableTelemetry; if that is set to false, Salesforce telemetry is disabled. For more information see Microsoft’s documentation.
