Manage agent keys inside Instana UI

Follow on from this ticket where it was necessary to rotate the Agent Keys this feature request is for the capability to manage Agent Keys from the Instana UI in order to limit the visibility and usage of keys to specific teams or parts of the organisation.

In the case above the need was to create a new Agent Key and move to it before removing access to the old key but the capability to use and manage multiple keys would give Instana administrators the capability to limit who has access to which keys.

    Dear Instana

    We're also interested in rotating agent keys periodically as a measure of best practice in cases where employess that leave the company have had access to these keys .

    Any chance this might make it back onto the roadmap?

    Best regards,

    Bernd

    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.

    Best regards
    Henning Treu - Product Manager Instana Agent & Application Perspectives
