Telemetry Guide/FAQ


The Hasura GraphQL Engine collects anonymous telemetry data that helps the Hasura team in understanding how the product is being used and in deciding what to focus on next.

The data collected is minimal, statistical in nature and cannot be used to uniquely identify a user. Please see the next section to see what data is collected and sent. Access to collected data is strictly limited to the Hasura team and not shared with 3rd parties.

As a growing community, we greatly appreciate the usage data users send to us, as it is very valuable in helping us make the Hasura GraphQL Engine a better product for everyone! However, if you are concerned about sending usage stats, you can choose to disable telemetry as described here.

What data is collected?


The server periodically sends the number of tables, views, relationships, permission rules, custom SQL functions, event triggers and Remote Schemas tracked by the GraphQL Engine, along with randomly generated UUIDs per database and per instance. The name of the current continuous integration environment (if any) and the server version is also sent.

The Console collects runtime errors along with anonymized route names are sent without any identifiable information or payload. The Console also records the UUID of the server/CLI that it is connected to.

Sample data:

"server_version": "2.0.0",
"event_type": "Main/RUN_TIME_ERROR",
"url": "/data/schema/SCHEMA_NAME/tables/TABLE_NAME/modify",
"console_mode": "cli",
"cli_uuid": "0e4e2e9b-7fc9-44b8-9d5c-955673e20e0b",
"server_uuid": "015a8f49-2fbd-4c41-8066-23f48d9c620a",
"data": { "message": "Uncaught TypeError: something is not a function", "stack": [" at main.js:1:3"] }

Please note that TABLE_NAME and SCHEMA_NAME are not placeholders. The actual names of the tables, schemas, remote-schemas and event-triggers that are a part of the URL are not sent.


The CLI collects each execution event, along with a randomly generated UUID. The execution event contains the command name, timestamp and whether the execution resulted in an error or not. Error messages, arguments and flags are not recorded. The CLI also collects the server version and UUID that it is talking to. The operating system platform and architecture is also noted along with the CLI version.

How do I turn off telemetry (opt-out)?

Disable server telemetry

You can turn off telemetry on the server and on the Console hosted by the server by setting the env variable HASURA_GRAPHQL_ENABLE_TELEMETRY=false or the flag --enable-telemetry=false on the server.

Disable CLI telemetry

You can turn off telemetry on the CLI and on the Console served by the CLI by setting the env variable HASURA_GRAPHQL_ENABLE_TELEMETRY=false on the machine running the CLI. You can also set "enable_telemetry": false in the JSON config file created by the CLI at ~/.hasura/config.json to persist the setting.
