This article explains how to create an application or application Perspective in Instana.

  • The Kubernetes-based application is deployed in an OpenShift container platform or on Kubernetes cluster.
  • Instana is installed and already observing the Kubernetes cluster.


The objective is to create an Application Perspective for the Kubernetes-based microservices application.
Here the iLender application is deployed in an ilend-ns namespace.
Let’s create an application perspective called iLend.


1.   Click on “Application” in the left navigation menu.

2.  Click on the “Add” button at the bottom of the screen.

3.  Click on the “New Application Perspective” button.

4.   Choose Kubernetes or Container menu.
5.   Click on the “Next” button.

6.   Select the “Kubernetes” option at the top.
7.   Select the “Kubernetes Namespace” option in the list box.

8.   Select the namespace where your app is deployed. Here, ilend-ns is the namespace. If your namespace is not listed here, try putting some load on the app.
9.   Select the “All Downstream” option.
10. Click on the “Next” button.

11.  Enter Application Perspective Name.
12.  Select the “All Calls” Option.
13.  Click on the “Create” button.

14.  Here is the application perspective screen for the app you have created.
