Options related to sending anonymous stats to the Pants project, to aid development.

Backend: pants.core
Config section: [anonymous-telemetry]

Basic options


Advanced options


default: False

Whether to send anonymous telemetry to the Pants project.
Telemetry is sent asynchronously, with silent failure, and does not impact build times or outcomes.
See Anonymous telemetry for details.


default: None

An anonymized ID representing this repo.
For private repos, you likely want the ID to not be derived from, or algorithmically convertible to, anything identifying the repo.
For public repos the ID may be visible in that repo's config file, so anonymity of the repo is not guaranteed (although user anonymity is always guaranteed).
See Anonymous telemetry for details.
