Appendix C: Collection of Anonymous Data

This solution includes an option to send anonymous usage data to AWS. We use this data to better understand how customers use this solution to improve the services and the products that we offer. When enabled, the following information is collected and sent to AWS each time the AWS Lambda function is invoked:

  • Solution ID: The AWS solution identifier

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

  • Timestamp: Data-collection timestamp

  • All Successful API Calls: The aggregate number of successful API calls made within the time period

  • Anomaly Score: The anomaly score reported Amazon Kinesis Data Analytics for the time period

  • Dashboard Views: The number of times the dashboard is viewed

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, modify the AWS CloudFormation template mapping section as follows:

"Send" : { "AnonymousUsage" : { "Data" : "Yes" } },

to

"Send" : { "AnonymousUsage" : { "Data" : "No" } },
