Web REST API

TABLE OF CONTENTS

The Instana Web REST API allows for retrieval of data such as traces and metrics, as well as configuration, such as service extraction and user management. For detailed information, see our Web REST API docs.

Tokens

In order to use the Web REST API, you need to create an API token and assign permissions to it. API tokens are managed only by the account owner role, who can create multiple API tokens with varying permissions.

API token management can found in Settings → Access Control → API Tokens.
