Provide Infra metrics for custom dashboard in Self-managed Dashboard

In the custom dashboard, Infra and Platform metrics is in "coming soon" status long time. My financial client can't adopt SaaS Instana because it is overseas region. Could you provide infra and platform capability also for the self-managed environment.

    Hi Tomonori,

    The feature is already in public beta and publicly documented here https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/instana-observability/current?topic=premises-installing-instana-backend-docker#beeinstana-metric-pipeline-beta

    The remaining work that Edwin mentioned is mainly around our Kubernetes based offering. If your client uses the docker-based offering, I suggest you have a look at the docs.

    Hi Tomonori,
    we are very close to delivering BeeInstana in GA for self-hosted deployments and with that you will be able to have this capability.
