Prevent dreamfactory phoning home?


#1

Hi All,

We’re doing some work with dreamfactory where security is important. So far it looks absolutely wonderful!

We have one issue, when we created some user accounts, dreamfactory ‘phoned home’ to trigger an email being sent. My questions are these:

  • What else does dreamfactory phone home about?
  • From an application point of view, are there configuration options to prevent it phoning home for any reason whatsoever?

Thanks in advance!

As you described DreamFactory sends a registration welcome email when a new user is created. It also gathers anonymous statistics about each DSP such as # of users, # of apps, # of logins, etc. Just total counts not any other information. Currently there is no way to disable that feature. If you would like to review the code that does this it can be found here:
