Ability to create SmartAlert based of the executed Analyse query

When in unbounded analytics finding an "interesting" situation it would be practical to directly create a SmartAlert based on this to be alerted in case such situation arises again,

Custom scheduling of instana alert

Custom scheduling of alerting is not available - like volume monitoring alerts to be scheduled only for week days, this will be useful to schedule the alerts only for the required time and ignore false alerts

Trigger alert from offline event only if there was no restart after a configurable amount of time

Currently, if I create an alert based on an offline event, the alert will immediately be triggered when the entity goes offline. Often an entity is only restarted, so if an alert is generated that would be a false alert. Instead it should be possi...

Could not find any Instana API to enable or disable all built-in/Custom events at once

Hi we are trying to disable all buit-in events at once and then enable few which we need for our infrastructure. Instead of walking through all existing events we found this would be more helpful to have an API to disbale/enable all events at once.

Indicate the reason for alert (e.g. instana-builtin, instana-custom-rule, etc.)
