Missing condition "OR" while configuring thresholds

Dear colleagues,

In Instana we miss condition "OR" while configuring thresholds. Our customer uses it in Tivoli Monitoring situations. Customer seeks for transition to Instana, so its implementation is highly demanded or at least any analog. Below are is the example of such ITM situation:

*IF *VALUE Queue_Status.Current_Depth *GE 1
*AND (
( ( *SCAN Queue_Status.Queue_Name *EQ .BOQ )
*OR ( *SCAN Queue_Status.Queue_Name *EQ .ERR )
*OR ( *SCAN Queue_Status.Queue_Name *EQ .REJECT )
*OR ( *SCAN Queue_Status.Queue_Name *EQ QB. ) ) )

*IF (

( *SCAN Linux_File_Information.File_Name_U *EQ 'core'

*AND *SCAN Linux_File_Information.Path_U *EQ '/home/itmmsg/' )


( *SCAN Linux_File_Information.File_Name_U *EQ 'core'

*AND *VALUE Linux_File_Information.Path_U *EQ '/opt/IBM/ITM/bin' )


thank you

    Ability to add up to 5 different OR conditions in now available in Custom Events

    Ability to use OR as a logical operator across all conditions is currently under analysis / implementation.

    However, complex / nested conditions (as those provided in examples in this idea) are not under consideration.
