Extend backend APIs to export/import gracefully all possible configurations rather than just a few
As an AIOPs practictioner I would want to see the API's (only APIs not the UI) behind config-migration feature be extended to support the migration of all possible Insatna configurations. Currently, it is only limited to Applications, Websites, Mobile Apps, Alerts, Custom Events, Alert Channel, Smart Alerts, and Groups configurations. Other configurations like Users, Dashboards, Agent configs, SLI/SLO, Synthetics, Service Rules, API Tokens, and configuration for Endpoint Extraction rules etc. Again there is no UI changes requested but just the enhancement of existing backend APIs. Also, the config migration APIs does import configurations gracefully (means it knows when to add, replace, or update a configuration record as compared to today's available public APIs that does not provide this functionality.
This is an interesting scenario and should be given some thought, especially when new customers are making the choice to go SaaS or self-hosted.
The benefit of extending the existing APIs would impact on easing up the SREs workload (and the exsiting process) to manually exporting DB SQL dumps from one tenant and importing these back to a new tenant. It will save time, effort, and resources from IBM side, resulting in less support/issues tickets form the customers. This would impact both bew and existing customers.
