What is kedro-telemetry?

Kedro-Telemetry is a plugin that gathers anonymised and aggregated usage analytics to help the Kedro team understand how Kedro is used and prioritise improvements to the product accordingly.

What data is being collected?

Read our Telemetry documentation for further information on the intent of the data collection and what data is collected.

For technical information on how the telemetry collection works, you can browse the source code of kedro-telemetry.

How do I consent to the use of Kedro-Telemetry?

Kedro-Telemetry is a Python plugin. To install it:

pip install kedro-telemetry

Note: If you are using an official Kedro project template then kedro-telemetry is included in the project-level requirements.txt of the starter. kedro-telemetry is activated after you have a created a new project with a Kedro project template and have run kedro install from the terminal.

When you next run the Kedro CLI you will be asked for consent to share usage analytics data for the purposes explained in the privacy notice, and a .telemetry YAML file will be created in the project root directory. The variable consent will be set according to your choice in the file, e.g. if you consent:

consent: true

Note: The .telemetry file should not be committed to git or packaged in deployment. In kedro>=0.17.4 the file is git-ignored.

How do I withdraw consent?

To withdraw consent, you can change the consent variable to false in .telemetry YAML by editing the file in the following way:

consent: false

Or you can uninstall the plugin:

pip uninstall kedro-telemetry

What happens when I withdraw consent?

Data will only be collected if consent is given. Otherwise, if consent was explicitly denied or withdrawn, the message below will be printed out on every Kedro CLI invocation. If you explicitly deny consent from the beginning, no data will be collected. If you withdraw consent later, the processing of data will be stopped from that moment on.

Kedro-Telemetry is installed, but you have opted out of sharing usage analytics so none will be collected.

How is the data collected

Kedro-Telemetry uses pluggy hooks and requests to send data to Heap Analytics. Project maintainers have access to the data and can create dashboards that show adoption and feature usage.

What licence do you use?

Kedro-Telemetry is licensed under the Apache 2.0 License.

Python version support policy

  • The Kedro-Telemetry supports all Python versions that are actively maintained by the CPython core team. When a Python version reaches end of life, support for that version is dropped from kedro-telemetry. This is not considered a breaking change.
