Tanzu Application Platform Telemetry

Tanzu Application Platform Telemetry is a set of objects that collect data about the usage of Tanzu Application Platform and send it back to VMware for product improvements. A benefit of remaining enrolled in telemetry and identifying your company during Tanzu Application Platform installation is that VMware can provide your organization with usage reports about Tanzu Application Platform. See Tanzu Application Platform usage reports for more information about enrolling in telemetry reports.

For more information on how to install the telemetry component, see Install Tanzu Application Platform Telemetry.

Tanzu Application Platform usage reports

VMware offers the option to enroll in a usage reporting program that offers a summary of usage of your Tanzu Application Platform. You can enroll in the program by providing the Entitlement Account Number (EAN). An EAN is a unique ID assigned to all VMware customers. VMware uses EAN to identify data about Tanzu Application Platform. See Locate the Entitlement Account number for new orders for more details.

After locating the EAN, pass the number under the telemetry header in the tap-values.yaml file as a value for the customer_entitlement_account_number key.

  customer_entitlement_account_number: "CUSTOMER-ENTITLEMENT-ACCOUNT-NUMBER"

You must repeat the process for each Tanzu Application Platform Cluster included in the telemetry report. For more information, see Full profile.

After enrollment, alert your VMware account team that you have configured the EAN field and want telemetry reports. This allows VMware to identify who the newly added EAN belongs to.


Usage report is only supported for non-airgapped deployments of Tanzu Application Platform and the Cluster must participate in Tanzu Application Platform telemetry. You are enrolled in telemetry by default. You can opt out of telemetry collection by following the instructions in Opt out of telemetry collection.
