What LCS Stores About Your Liferay DXP Servers

To protect your users’ privacy, LCS only stores system-specific data. LCS doesn’t gather or store data on your users.

By default, LCS stores the following information about your server:

  • Portal build number and edition
  • Patching Tool Version
  • LCS Client Build Number
  • Application Server Name
  • Database Name
  • File Encoding
  • OS Name and Version
  • Timezone
  • IP Address
  • Java Version and Java Options
  • Number of Processor Cores
  • File System Usage
  • Memory Usage

The other data LCS stores depends on the services you enabled in your environment token, and whether your server was connected before certain services were removed. For more information on this, see Registering Servers with LCS. If you enabled the following services, LCS gathered and stored the data listed for each:

  • Portal analytics:

    • Portal and portlet metrics
    • JVM metrics
    • Cache and server metrics
  • Fix pack management:

    • Patches installed on the server
  • Portal properties analysis:

    • portal.properties (except sensitive data)

Sensitive data is any key-value pair that contains user names or passwords. For example, LCS did not store the following properties because they contain sensitive data:

ldap.security.credentials.0, ldap.security.credentials.1, ldap.security.credentials.2 ...

LCS also did not store properties that end in .password, besides the following non-sensitive properties:


LCS also allowed you to prevent it from analyzing specific properties of your choosing, by defining blacklisted properties.

LCS is no longer gathering or storing the data listed above, that was associated with enabled services.
