Using "self time" in Smart Alerts

Is it possible to use the metric "Self Time" in a Smart Alert ? Specifically, it is about the monitoring of an API gateway. Since the response time depends on the caller and the called system, but it would be important to know if the self time of ...

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

Improved scoping on Host Unavailability Detection
