Telemetry


#1

Hi,

Is there any telemetry of snapd? I want to know what canonical is getting from us? If a telemetry module is exist, how can I disable it?

Thank you

There is no “telemetry”. All the store gets from you is your ip address, a system-key, snapd’s user-agent, and for the refresh endpoint, the snaps you have installed. If you’ve logged in to snapd and the store (via snap login) it’ll also get a macaroon (like a session cookie).

If you set SNAPD_DEBUG=1 and SNAPD_DEBUG_HTTP=7 in snapd's environment you can see the body of requests sent to and received from the store, and inspect them.
