To hide confidential information on Instana's analysis screen

When we are using Instana, currently Instana is displaying http request as below.
"POST / api / v1 / users / 123456789 / XXXXXXXXX"

To hide confidential information, is it possible to display "POST / api / v1 / users /" on the analysis screen?


And also, we found a sample on the Instana's demo site.

https://play-with.instana.io/#/analyze;dataSource=calls;groupBy=(groupbyTag~endpoint.na[…]FilterExpression=!~?snapshotId=EUW12xEcfY1AV4FidUa3u8znHKc

The customer would like us to remove or mask the part that is {sku} as attached image.

As you can see, each request shows individual values ​​such as EVE-1.


Best Regards,

    Dear Customer,
    We thank you so much for submitting an idea and, in doing this, we appreciate your support in improving Instana product.
    Unfortunately this requirement is not currently in our roadmap and will not be for the next 12/18 months.
    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.

    Additional Information: We do not consider information which is part ofd a URL to be confidential.


    Best regards
