GitLab collects information about usage from each Self-managed GitLab instance (Community Edition and Enterprise Edition) through a usage ping. The usage ping sends a payload containing data such as total number of projects and pipelines, as well as license information and hostname to GitLab. Only aggregates of usage data is sent: no project names or other content is sent to GitLab. You can view the exact payload of the usage ping in the administration panel in GitLab. Here describes how you can also opt-out of the usage ping.
