Feature Idea: Availability of custom segments into break down table




I had been discussing some issues Custom instrument segment not showing on this topic as well in support ticket.

Any custom segment you create with shim.createSegment("") only shows in the individual transaction trace. While for some use cases its really helpful if we can list down in Breakdown table for transaction overview.

From support team its suggested that to have some function in breakdown we can do by shim.startWebTransaction or shim.startBackgroundTransaction. But some code functions are not actually the transactions, they composed or part of a transaction but not a transaction itself.

So it would be nice to have a feature shim.createSegment("", {showInBreakdown: true}) so that one segment can be aggregated and showed as breakdown element.

Custom instrument segment not showing

Hey @nazar - Thanks for posting your Feature Idea here. I have added a poll to your post such that others can have a say here, additionally I have posted a feature request internally to the product team. :smiley:


At the very least you all need to add a note to all of the methods that only add information to slow transaction traces.


Hey @gguthrie Thanks for the additional input, I’ll add that with your +1 to this feature idea :slight_smile:
