File Director telemetry
Ivanti learns most about our products from the real-world experience of our valued customer base. We greatly value the feedback provided to us. However, to make the best-informed decisions on future developments of our products we need a wide view of deployment and adoption data.
Telemetry data can help us measure the quality, scalability, reliability and capabilities of our products. Using such data could enable us to deliver the solutions our customers demand faster, and alert us to areas which customers would find less useful.
Ivanti want to ensure a high level of transparency on this topic. The telemetry data that we gather is listed below. It is the same set of data that our customer support teams use to resolve user issues. The gathering of this data is in-line with our existing EULA agreement. Nevertheless, any customers not wishing to participate can withhold this data from being sent.
Please note: the availability of telemetry data has enabled Ivanti to respond proactively to potential issues, and to provide customers with highly relevant and timely information regarding their systems. To enable continuity of this service, Ivanti recommends customers allow telemetry data.
Data is gathered from each appliance and sent to a secure Application Insights instance.
General data collected:
•Cluster ID (this is a hash of the cluster name and port)
• Customer name
•License key count

•Support mode status.
