Spring Boot monitoring requires that Spring Boot Actuator is configured:


Instana queries metrics and health from the respective Spring Boot management MBeans org.springframework.boot:type=Endpoint,name=Metrics and org.springframework.boot:type=Endpoint,name=Health


Naming Spring Boot Apps

Instana extracts the name for the Spring Boot instances leveraging the build-info.properties file. It can be generated for example with the spring-boot-maven-plugin:


See https://docs.spring.io/spring-boot/docs/current/maven-plugin/examples/build-info.html for details.

Alternatively, you can also set spring.application.name in your application config.
