Instana supporting instrumentation of lambda functions using Terraform

As of now, Instana is not supporting AWS lambda functions using Terraform.  Few teams in our agency using  AWS lambda functions using Terraform and we need Instana instrumentation on these nodes.

    I think this is supported using the Instana provided Lambda Layer and assign this layer together with the required environment variables to the lambda function in the terraform code.

    Best practice devops mandates using Infrastructure as Code (IaC) encapsulated in Terraform or equivalent to build a system rather then manual setup. IaC automates system build. IBM please support Terraform or equivalent as soon as possible.
