Instana Event REST-API -> Add filter options for GET /events

The Client wants to get all active Events for a Team in his company to define a team's Environment/Services status.
This status of all Events should be aggregated to one Status (if one has an error, Status is in error, else good) and then displayed in the global health status board.
Similiar to Statuspage.

The Customer uses a Nagios-based Solution (checkmk) to have active checks and global Dashboards for Company System Status.
There is no way to query the Status of a team by Events since the Event-API is only returning all Events by time frame.

Using Alert Channels with Webhook, which send information to the Nagios based System, is also not a suitable solution since the receiving system can only have one status.
In case we have multiple events with different error durations, the first and second event will set the status to error, but with the first event going on OK, the status will be overridden. In contrast, the second event may still be open.

This is why we believe it is better to query the status currently instead of sending the events to the target system.

Requested Solution:
We need to query a Team / Component status by querying the Open Events by an Instana-Filter for Team definition.
This is currently based on Application Perspectives or docker/pod labels.

Extending to Instana API ->
to support a query as you can do in the instana API would be the best solution.
This would then be queried every 30 sec.
