If you deactivate CEIP, VMware may not be able to gain proactive insights about product issues that you might be facing or effectively prioritize essential feature enhancements of the product.

After installation or upgrade of VMware Aria Operations for Logs, you can deactivate the CEIP program by following these steps.


Verify that you are logged in to the VMware Aria Operations for Logs web user interface as a Super Admin user, or a user associated with a role that has the relevant permissions. See Create and Modify Roles for more information.
