Opting Out of Telemetry

UiPath collects usage and performance data to help diagnose problems and improve its products. For more details about UiPath’s privacy practices, please review the privacy statement.

The telemetry data is used for developing new features and improvements for boosting user-experience and equipping Studio with the tools that you need the most.

In addition, by using telemetry data we can cater to user needs and make improvements in the product, in such a way that it would make it easier for you to design, debug and run automation processes.

If you want to see how to opt out of telemetry in Orchestrator, please visit this page.

Telemetry data is not being collected for the Robot.

Note:

Usage data collection is enabled by default in Studio and can be switched off only if Studio is activated with an Enterprise license.

Opting Out at Install Time

Disabling the usage data collection can be done at install time for Studio using command-line parameters. This is available only when using UiPath.Studio.msi.

  1. Open Command Prompt as an administrator.
  2. Go to the directory in which you saved the .msi, for example cd C:\UiPath.Studio.msi.
  3. Run the setup artifacts with the parameters for installing Studio and Robot, together with the TELEMETRY_ENABLED=0 parameter for disabling telemetry. TELEMETRY_ENABLED=1 is the parameter for enabling data collection.

For example, the following commands install Studio, a Robot as a Windows service and the activities packages, and opts out of telemetry - UiPathStudio.msi ADDLOCAL=DesktopFeature,Studio,Robot,RegisterService,Packages TELEMETRY_ENABLED=0

To view more information about command line parameters at install time, check out this page.

Note:

The TELEMETRY_ENABLED parameter can also be added when updating your Studio instance. If the parameter is omitted on updates, the previous value is preserved.

If the key was missing in the previous version of Studio and you do not provide the TELEMETRY_ENABLED parameter during the update, Telemetry.Enabled is automatically set to true.

Opting Out After Installation

After installing UiPathStudio.msi, you can opt out of telemetry at user-level by using the Telemetry toggle in Studio Backstage view.

The second method requires the "Telemetry.Enabled" parameter in the uipath.config file to be modified. Please note that this method is recommended at organization level. Once the change is made in the uipath.configfile, it can not be reverted by using the telemetry toggle in Studio > General Settings.

Opting Out At User Level

In Studio Backstage view, go to Settings > General settings. In the Telemetry category, switch the toggle to Disabled. Restart Studio. Anonymous telemetry is no longer collected from your machine.

Opting Out At Organization Level

The second way in which you can opt out of telemetry after installation is by modifying the "Telemetry.Enabled" parameter in the uipath.config file, located at %ProgramFiles(x86)%\UiPath\Studio\uipath.config.

<analyticsSettings>
  <add key="Telemetry.Enabled" value="true" />
</analyticsSettings>

In the <analyticsSettings> section, change the value for the "Telemetry.Enabled" parameter from "true" to "false". Save the file and restart Studio if needed. UiPath no longer collects telemetry data pertaining to Studio and Robot installed on your machine.

Please note that if you upgrade your Studio instance to v2019 Fast Track without specifying the telemetry parameter, you also need to add the analyticsSettings section to the uipath.config file, as illustrated below:

<configSections>
  <section name="analyticsSettings" type="System.Configuration.AppSettingsSection" />
</configSections>
