When progressing through the FTU, the Usage Metrics Data page will allow the user to select between Basic, Enhanced, and None reporting levels.  This option is disabled on Dogfood builds, and automatically configured to Enhanced.

However, these options are still selectable to the user for a brief period of time the first time the page is loaded.  The user is able to change this setting before the option becomes greyed out and unselectable, and then the user is unable to change it back.

The timing is very specific to do this, but a determined (or possibly clumsy) user is able to change this setting.

Note: If the user doesn't get the timing right, they can restart the device before completing the FTU and attempt again. 

Repro Steps:
1) Update a Aries to 20151105134116
2) Progress through the FTU, pausing at the Contact Import screen.
3) Press the Next button, and immediately press either the  'None" or "Basic" radio buttons to change the metrics setting.

The user is able to change the metrics setting before it is made unselectable on a Dogfood build..

The user is not able to modify the metrics setting on a dogfood build.

This issue DOES occur on the latest Aries 2.5 Dogfood build.
The user is able to change the metrics setting before it is made unselectable on a Dogfood build.

[Blocking Requested - why for this release]:

This should be fixed since the user can get around sending their data on a dogfood build even though it is kind of a tester bug. Nominating 2.5?

Can you take a look at this please Gerry?

1. I would like to confirm if not allowing user to change the data setting on dogfood devices is the default option.
2. Since the recreate rate is not high and user needs to do this intentionally, NI developer to determine if this needs to be fixed in 2.5.

Per above comment, NI developer.

Hi Gerry,  

For dogfooding, the user should not be allowed to change the option.  So, yes, this is a bug if Martin is saying it can be changed.

My .02 is that it's not a blocker as you mention, the user needs to read, understand and then try to do something.  If someone really wants to try and get around this, there are other ways, besides this.

Incidentally, I can't repro this on Flame.
