Share data in Splunk IT Service Intelligence

When Splunk IT Service Intelligence is deployed on Splunk Enterprise, the Splunk platform sends usage data to Splunk Inc. ("Splunk") to help improve Splunk IT Service Intelligence in future releases. For information about how to opt in, and how the data is collected, stored, and governed, see Share data in Splunk Enterprise.

ITSI is packaged with Splunk App for Infrastructure (SAI). For information about the data that SAI collects, see Share data in Splunk App for Infrastructure in the Install and Upgrade Splunk App for Infrastructure manual.
