Usage reporting

Learn about the data we collect and how to disable usage reporting

Note: Anonymized usage reporting is enabled by default. Use one of these two options to disable it.

The CLI collects anonymized usage data including the command-line arguments used, system details and errors that you get so that we can improve the way you run your Cypress tests on BrowserStack.

You can change whether usage details are sent to BrowserStack at any time. You can disable the usage reporting by:

  1. Setting the disable_usage_reporting option to "true" in browserstack.json
  2. Via the CLI whenever you use any command

Using browserstack.json

You can use the disable_usage_reporting option to enable or disable usage reporting.

By default, it is set to "false" - which means that the usage reporting is not disabled.

If you want to disable usage reporting, here is how you can do it:

browserstack.json
{
  ...
  "disable_usage_reporting": "false"
  ...
}

Using the CLI

You can use the --disable-usage-reporting flag while using the CLI in combination with any command.

For example:

Command Line
browserstack-cypress run --sync --disable-usage-reporting
