Share data from Splunk Phantom

When Splunk Phantom is deployed, the platform sends anonymized usage data to Splunk Inc. ("Splunk") to help improve Splunk Phantom in future releases. You can opt in or opt out of sharing telemetry data.

Enable telemetry by doing the following:

  1. From the main menu, select Administration.
  2. Expand the Product Settings drop-down list.
  3. Click Telemetry.
  4. Toggle the switch to the On position.
  5. Click Confirm.

Disable telemetry by doing the following:

  1. From the main menu, select Administration.
  2. Expand the Product Settings drop-down list.
  3. Click Telemetry.
  4. Toggle the switch to the Off position.
  5. Click Confirm.

How data is collected

Splunk Phantom uses Splunk Web Analytics (swa.js) to collect anonymous usage data. These analytics run in the background regardless of whether you opt in to sending usage data to Splunk. Collecting data affects the Splunk Phantom UI loading in a minimal way. Performance numbers are currently being gathered to compare with a baseline Splunk Phantom system with no telemetry.

What data is collected

Data is collected to measure metrics of the product, assess performance for optimizations, evaluate engagement for roadmaps, and discover client-side errors to inform UI fixes. The metrics do not contain any user-provided values such as username, email, or any URL parameters that are user or customer identifiable. Splunk Phantom collects the following basic usage information:
