Automation Action HTTP
The Automation Action HTTP sensor is a component of Instana Managing actions feature. This sensor allows you to run the HTTP actions that are created by using the Action catalog on the target agent. The sensor is automatically deployed and installed after you install the Instana agent.
To utilize this sensor in self-hosted (on-premises) environment, you must enable the automation feature flag of Managing actions.
By default, the sensor is disabled. To enable the sensor, update the agent configuration file
<agent_install_dir>/etc/instana/configuration.yaml as follows:
com.instana.plugin.action.http: enabled: true # by default is false
Maximum concurrent actions configuration
By default, the HTTP sensor runs 10 concurrent HTTP actions. If you want to control the number of concurrent HTTP actions, add the
maxConcurrentActions attribute to the HTTP sensor configuration in the agent configuration file as follows:
com.instana.plugin.action.http: enabled: true maxConcurrentActions: 5 # optional, default value is 10
If the HTTP action in your action catalog uses Vault parameters, then you need to enable the Vault sensor by using the Vault sensor configuration. The Vault parameter integration of actions currently
supports token authentication and the following configuration parameters
