Make search event opt-out
For it to be useful, we should make the search event opt-out: https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/39d5cc0fda5e16c49a59d29d4ca186a5534cc88b/toolkit/components/telemetry/Events.yaml#2 Currently all event recording requires explicit activation/enabling by an add-on anyway, so making this opt-out poses no increased risk.
Make search event opt-out & and add David Zeber to the owners.

Comment on attachment 8872885 [details] [diff] [review] Make search event opt-out Rebecca, i'm requesting data review for this smaller change to make the search event opt-out. David Zeber signed up as the owner / monitoring user. Events are currently mainly accessible through a re:dash table & custom analysis. This is a low risk change as this does not directly enable event recording. To enable this event, add-ons (say studies or experiments) still need to explicitly enable event recording for each session, as i outlined in  & . For the search event to be really useful to any search experiments or studies, we need to make it opt-out though. Otherwise we will only be able to get search event data from Telemetry opt-in users on release. 0: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/14EcnTIz1jP5N3sst8IVYr99UjT-PsnjC3BaVKi6H7Is/edit#slide=id.g1f0eee911f_1_90 1: https://gecko.readthedocs.io/en/latest/toolkit/components/telemetry/telemetry/collection/events.html#the-api

This strikes me as type 2 data collection. For posterity, what dataset will these events be added to? main_summary/longitudinal? r+ given these details.
(In reply to Rebecca Weiss from comment #4) > For posterity, what dataset will these events be added to? > main_summary/longitudinal? The event data will show up in "main_summary" and the "events" dataset.
