send plugin report/logs over an email.


is there any way to fetch utilization report from intellij plugin ? we have developed one intellij plugin using Java-gradle and business scenario is to send the custom log file over the email as soon as intellij plugin gets opened by end user.

Please do let us know some expert insights if anyone encountered across such scenario.

It is unclear what you are trying to do, but here are my general hints:

  • Never send any user data without explicit user's consent. It is illegal.
  • There is no recommended approach for collecting and sending user's/usage data. You can get some inspiration from this open source repository:
  • Why do you want to send it via email? You will have to provide email sending server data in the plugin, which will make it public, and anyone will be able to send email on your behalf.
