Add seasonality to Smart Alerts Error and Warning Log Blueprint

As an Instana user i need the functionality to alert on Error and Warn Logs with a daily or weekly seasonality. This is crucial for Smart Alerts on Logs where a certain percentage of an occuring log message is tollerated and it is not possible to define a static threshold for a strongly deviating number of logs in the day and night cycle.

In older versions of Instana (217 and lower) it was possible to create a Smart Alert on Throughput and add additional filters on logs. Since we updated to v221 the only way to alert on logs with Smart Alerts is the Error and Warn Log blueprint where the user is not able to set a seasonal threshold.

    However, the new dedicated Smart Alert for Logs is currently only supporting static thresholds and seasonality or adaptive thresholds will likely not be added in the next 6-9 months
