How information is shared by Replicated:
Replicated (the app) calls out to api.replicated.com on a regular interval to check for updates, and download information if necessary. The interval is approximately every five (5) hours, but is shorter for older versions of Replicated. All the information Replicated broadcasts, listed above, is stored by them and available to CircleCI through Replicated’s vendor web application. It is not configurable on our end, but can be disabled on your end by disabling outbound internet access, and only enabling it during the windows in which you want to update Replicated.
