Instana API: Inclusion of Synthetic Trace Calls in Instana API Query for Analyze Trace
Dear IBM Instana Team,
Our team frequently utilizes the Instana API to retrieve in-depth alarming details by closely scrutinizing trace details. This has significantly aided our performance analysis and error identification efforts. However, we have encountered a challenge that we hope can be addressed.
We rely on synthetic trace calls related to health checks to obtain granular error details, but we've noticed that the current API does not provide a direct way to query these synthetic or health check-related trace calls. This absence is hindering our ability to thoroughly understand and resolve specific issues.
Reviewing the current API documentation available at https://instana.github.io/openapi/#operation/getTraces, we have been unable to find a parameter that could facilitate such a query. We wonder if a parameter, such as 'includeSynthetics', could be integrated into the API for this purpose.
We have observed that similar parameters exist in other APIs, as demonstrated here: https://instana.github.io/openapi/#operation/getServicesMetrics. We believe the inclusion of such a feature in the Instana API would greatly enhance our analysis capabilities and we're hopeful that other users could also benefit from it.
We kindly request you to consider implementing this feature in the upcoming iterations of the Instana API. Your support in this matter would be greatly appreciated and would enable us to continue using Instana as an integral part of our monitoring and error management process.
Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.
