Appendix B: Collection of Operational Metrics - Customizations for AWS Control Tower

Appendix B: Collection of Operational Metrics

This solution includes an option to send anonymous operational metrics 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:

  • Solution ID: The AWS solution identifier

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

  • Timestamp: Data-collection timestamp

  • State Machine Execution Count: Incrementally counts the number of times the solution’s state machine runs

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, complete one of the following tasks:

  • Modify the AWS CloudFormation template mapping section as follows:

    AnonymousData: SendAnonymousData: Data: Yes


    AnonymousData: SendAnonymousData: Data: No


  • After the solution has been deployed, find the /org/primary/metrics_flag SSM parameter key in the Parameter Store console and set the value to No.
