Add Event name (aka. Alert rule name) into alert JSON message


Currently, when alert is triggered instana sends alert as JSON message to Alert Channel (Splunk in our case). Can you please add Event name (aka Alert Rule Name) into those JSON messages so that we know which instana event (alert rule) created this specific message?

Those event names can be found in Instana UI -> Settings -> Events -> first column "Name".

Example of current alert JSON message which is missing Event Name (aka Alert Rule Name):
