Configuration

Azure SQL Server sensor can be disabled and it can be filtered by tags and resource groups. It is possible to configure Azure SQL Server sensor via agent configuration in <agentinstall_dir>/etc/instana/configuration.yaml by:

com.instana.plugin.azure.sqlserver:
    # Valid values: true, false
    enabled: false # enabled (true) by default
    # Comma separated list of tags in key:value format
    include_tags: 
    # Comma separated list of tags in key:value format
    exclude_tags: 
    # Comma separated list of resource groups
    include_resource_groups: 
    # Comma separated list of resource groups
    exclude_resource_groups: 

Azure SQL Server sensor can be disabled. To disable monitoring of the Azure SQL Server services use the folowing configuration:

com.instana.plugin.azure.sqlserver:
    enabled: false

Multiple tags and resource groups can be defined, separated by a comma. Tags should be provided as a key-value pair separated by :. In order to make configuration easier, it is possible to define which tags and resource groups you want to include in discovery or exclude from discovery. In case of defining tag or resource group in both lists (include and exclude), exclude list has higher priority. If there is no need for services filtering, the configuration should not be defined. It’s not mandatory to define all values in order to enable filtering.

To include services by tags into discovery use folowing configuration:

com.instana.plugin.azure.sqlserver:
    include_tags: # Comma separated list of tags in key:value format (e.g. env:prod,env:staging)

To exclude services by tags from discovery use folowing configuration:

com.instana.plugin.azure.sqlserver:
    exclude_tags: # Comma separated list of tags in key:value format (e.g. env:dev,env:test)

To include services by resource groups into discovery use folowing configuration:

com.instana.plugin.azure.sqlserver:
    include_resource_groups: # Comma separated list of resource groups (e.g. rg_prod,rg_staging)

To exclude services by resource groups from discovery use folowing configuration:

com.instana.plugin.azure.sqlserver:
    exclude_resource_groups: # Comma separated list of resource groups (e.g. rg_dev,rg_test)

Discovery filtering can be configured on the global level for all Azure services. In case of defining filters for Azure SQL Server service, global filters will be overridden. For more details about global Azure service discovery filtering visit Azure Configuration.
