Fideslog Analytics


Fides includes an implementation of fideslog (opens in a new tab) to provide Ethyca with an understanding of user interactions with fides tooling.

All collected analytics are anonymized, and only used in either product roadmap determination, or as insight into product adoption. Information collected by fideslog is received via HTTPs request, stored in a secure database, and never shared with third parties unless required by law.

More information on use, implementation, and configuration can be found in the fideslog repository (opens in a new tab).

Collected Data

Fideslog collects information on instances of Fides by recording internal events. Using Fides may result in sending any or all of the following analytics data to Ethyca:

dockerIf fides is run in a docker container.
eventThe type of analytics event - currently, either a server start or endpoint call.
event_createdThe time of the event.
endpointThe endpoint accessed.
status_codeThe status result of the request.
errorError information, if any.

Disabling Fideslog

To opt out of analytics, set either the following fides environment variable or .toml configuration variable to True.

analytics_opt_outFalseInclude in your fides.toml file.
