By allowing Talend Studio to collect the Talend Studio usage statistics, you help users better understand Talend products and help Talend better learn how users are using the products, thus enabling Talend to improve product quality and performance to serve users better.

By default, Talend Studio automatically collects the Talend Studio usage data and sends this data on a regular basis to servers hosted by Talend. You can view the usage data collection and upload information and customize the Usage Data Collector preferences according to your needs.

Note: Be assured that only the Talend Studio usage statistics data will be collected and none of your private information will be collected and transmitted to Talend.


  1. From the menu bar, click Window > Preferences to display the Preferences dialog box.
  2. Expand the Talend node and click Usage Data Collector to display the Usage Data Collector view.
  3. Read the message about the Usage Data Collector, and, if you do not want the Usage Data Collector to collect and upload your Talend Studio usage information, clear the Enable capture check box.
  4. To have a preview of the usage data captured by the Usage Data Collector, expand the Usage Data Collector node and click Preview.
  5. To customize the usage data upload interval and view the date of the last upload, click Uploading under the Usage Data Collector node.

    The collected product usage data is sent to Talend servers every 5 days by default. To change the data upload interval, enter a new integer value in days in the Upload Period field and click Apply to save your changes.

    The read-only Last Upload field displays the date and time the usage data was last sent to Talend servers.
