Implementing a RBAC based access for displaying the PII information in the tracing details

Hi Team, As we were evaluating the usage of Instana Real user monitoring, we saw a concern about all users be able to see the PII information like user name and email address, however we want to limit these details only to a specific set of users. Below is a screen capture from the Instana demo. Thanks & Regards, Ashwin

    After a short assesment, this would mostly require changes in identifying potential PII in traces and just some adjustments expected on the RBAC configuration we can likely come back to this idea in the second half of the year, where we can re-evaluate for more specific timing.

    Hello Ashwin,
    We're currently looking into the technical feasability of this idea to make sure we can have an informed decision about potential timelines.
    I know the idea was submitted already some time ago, but please allow us a bit more time.
