Logging Amazon Kinesis to instana


A few details about this feature.
It would be interesting to explore the possibility to connect from our Kinesis Data stream.

We currently push logs with Json format via Kinesis to elasticsearch.
The idea would be to be able to push these Json files to instana.

I'm guessing it would mean that the Json format would have to be parsed by instana.

I don't have enough informations at this point to provide you more details about this potential feature . i will come back to this ticket with further details in the future.

Kind regards,

Strategic feature request. Customer uses Amazon Kinesis to format logs in order to be readable for Kibana. They request instana to be able to ingress data logs from amazon kinesis.
