WebGUI event viewer selected event export as CSV tool option

The event viewer allows copy+paste of events but these have no separator. We need a tool to export selected events in the event viewer to a CSV/XLS file for use with a spreadsheet. This allows users to discuss and share event details easier, for t...

Allow better group search/filtration

Reposting TURBO-I-342 because it was incorrectly closed. Do not close this and mark it as "already exists" because it doesn't. We have tons of groups for all sorts of use cases. Currently there's only exact match search, which is not the best espe...

Allow downloadable lists for all entity types from "list of xxx" pages

There are many use cases to be able to download lists of entities. Today, there is only one workaround for one entity type and that's for VMs only. To get a list of all VMs you need to go to "Top Virtual Machines" and then download from there. For...

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...

Allow Event rules to be exported and imported.

This would be great for DEV and PROD systems. If I add many event rules for testing on DEV it would be great to be able to export them and import them into the PROD server.

Allow calendars to use specified times along with dates.

We have Extended outage on specific dates though out the year. starting at 11:00 PM on Saturday and ending at 05:30 AM Sunday. Our extended outage calendar works but no jobs run for the whole day Saturday and Sunday. It would be great to have this...

Currently the integration with pagerduty is done via Pagerduty services (You need to create one integration key per service). But there is a different way to send events to Pagerduty which is to send it to a Queue. Reasons for this requests: possi...
