support NodeJS PrismaORM or the DB dependencies thereof

Instana currently does not auto discover DB queries made to MySQL through the PrismaORM package (https://www.prisma.io/). Presumably it's not Prisma that needs to be instrumented, but rather the DB Driver it uses (MariaDB?).

    We do have delivered the first iteration of PrismaORM support and the call is annotated with ORM level information.

    This idea is now marked as "delivered" since we have not heard back from you within 30 days.

    If this feature is still a priority for your Instana implementation at that time, please reopen it to bring up to our attention and we will reevaluate for its inclusion.

    Hi, after investigation we found out the driver PrismaORM is based on native code built from Rust, so we will not be able to support the driver.

    We can support it by instrumenting PrismaORM itself, the drawback is that we don't get the SQL statement as that is hidden in the native code. Instead we will collect information at ORM level like "user.findMany". Do you think that would meet your needs?
