It appears the only way to set maintenance windows (to suppress alerts) is to setup a maintenance window but it only allows specific dates and times. Our maintenance windows are set by day of week and time (regardless of specific date). For exampl...

Planned for future release
When an unusual amount of issues have occured (for an entity) it would be good to assure this boils up somehow. I.e. if CPU usage or memory exhaustion happens more frequently than usual (on a host) the user should be able to be informed pro-active...
We're managing multiple instana backends via API configuration. This works for many configuration items. However it doesn't work for Smart Alerts with a daily or weakly seasonality. Seasonality differs per system. While it is possible to recalcula...
We need to create an alert when there is a significant drop in the number of agents, currently there is one alert per agent. This will allow us to react quickly on our side in case of a significant loss of agents

Planned for future release
The built event work in most of the cases but for some specific environment some values need to be adjust in order to avoid false positive. Instead of disabling the builtint and create a new one from scratch it would be nice to have a "clone fonct...
We think it should be possible to create alerts based on defined SLIs and SLOs. Currently, it's not possible to alert if something is consuming an available error budget too fast over a certain time or that we consumed the error budget already com...
Trigger alert from offline event only if there was no restart after a configurable amount of time
Currently, if I create an alert based on an offline event, the alert will immediately be triggered when the entity goes offline. Often an entity is only restarted, so if an alert is generated that would be a false alert. Instead it should be possi...
Add alerting condition / Request Impact "Total Calls in Alert Scope" to smart alerts
Using smart alerts in Instana, we are currently able to define the absolute number of requests Impacted within the alerting condition (time threshold). See attachment 01 It is however in most cases much more relevant to set up a threshold for a to...
There should be a functionality to define the relative deviation instead of absolute deviation when creating custom events. For example, when we create a new custom event for "Entity - Application" and "Metric - Call count", we don't want to choos...
Support to tag creation on events API in order to create synthetic events based on contextual information, similar to trace tags. Widgets be capable of filter events based on tags sent by event API. Attached image describe a sample of event API us...
