This solution includes an option to send anonymous usage data to AWS. We use this data to better understand how customers use this solution and related services and products. When enabled, the following information is collected and sent to AWS during initial deployment of the solution's AWS CloudFormation template:

  • Solution ID: The AWS solution identifier

  • Unique ID (UUID): Randomly generated, unique identifier for each deployment of this solution

  • Timestamp: Data-collection timestamp

  • Solution configuration: Features enabled and parameters set during initial launch

  • Lifecycle: How long the customer used the solution (based on stack delete)

  • Log Parser data:

    • The number of IP addresses in the manual blacklist set and the automatically created set to block

    • The number of requests processed and blocked

  • IP Lists Parser data:

    • The number of IP addresses in the set

    • The number of requests blocked

  • Access Handler data:

    • The number of IP addresses in the set

    • The number of requests blocked

Note that AWS will own the data gathered via this survey. Data collection will be subject to the AWS Privacy Policy. To opt out of this feature, set the Send Anonymous Usage Data parameter to No.
