Does scimapClient have permission to track usage?

Share:

Description

Checks if the package has permission to track usage.

Usage

1

Details

Permission can be granted or revoked with enableScimap() or disableScimap() from the interactive prompt.

If permission is not given, the scimapRegister() function returns silently without doing anything. If permission is granted, the package sends usage information, but also returns silently.

Tracking is automatically disabled if the environment variable R_TESTS is set (even to ""); this prevents spurious packets from being sent during testing. It's also disabled while packages are being installed (by checking for the environment variable R_PACKAGE_NAME).

Value

boolean
