Need documentation on how to uninstall Instana for K8 and Docker self hosted installation
We need documentation on how to uninstall Instana and the resources created during the installation of Instana on K8. These steps are helpful especially recovering from failed installation so that the customer could retry the steps.
Add more options for "start" time for Release Markers API.
Using Cloud Pak for Integration, our CI/CD Pipeline uses ArgoCD and Argo Notifications. Argo Notifications does not support UNIX timestamp in milliseconds. Only seconds or microseconds. It would be very helpful if for example the Releases API coul...

Under Infrastructure the IBM ACE Message Flow view shows the Flow Nodes associated with the Messageflow and has a single Maximum Elapsed Time for each node; we would also like an Average Elapsed Time for each Flow node as well.
As stated above, displaying the Average Elapsed Time for each message flow node for the selected timeframe would provide a great deal of value when using Instana to track Message Flow performance. As a 2nd ask, and of lesser priority, would it als...
