Analytics data collection
Continuous Delivery for Puppet Enterprise (PE) automatically collects data about how you use the software. If you want to opt out of providing this data, you can do so when installing Continuous Delivery for PE.
Continuous Delivery for PE collects analytics data in order to better understand how our customers are using the software. For example, knowing how many control repos you manage helps us develop more realistic product testing. And learning which source control systems are the most and the least used helps us decide where to prioritize new functionality.
