Ability to search by POD IP in dynamic focus

The use case is to identify the POD details from a Nginx downstream when it returns an error for no response from downstream service and it returns only IP of the downstream POD.

However, unfortunately the current filtering with dynamic focus can only be specified the following in the "entity.kubernetes.pod." and this is working as designed. (refer to the "iamge2.png" attached)

label		"key_value"	Labels of Pod
name "string" Kubernetes Pod Name
phase "string" Kubernetes Pod Status
uid "string" Kubernetes Pod UID
volumeName "string" Volumes attached to the Pod

Filtering with dynamic focus

    Hello Ashwin,

    Thanks for bringing this idea to our attention! It makes a lot of sense and we will come back to it in the near future.

    In the mean time, I wanted to highlight that you can use Kubernetes labels and annotations to filter and group pods.
