Important

The original µAPM product, released in 2019, is now called µAPM Previous Generation (µAPM PG). Wherever you see the reference, µAPM now refers to the product released on March 31, 2020.

If you’re using µAPM Previous Generation (µAPM PG), see Overview of SignalFx Microservices APM Previous Generation (µAPM PG).

Global data links are available for APM services, trace IDs, span IDs, and span tags. Data links are dynamic resources that connect an APM property to a dashboard or external resource such as Splunk logs, Kibana logs, and custom URLs.

When you use a data link associated with an APM service, trace ID, or span ID, the context of the property transfers to the resource for the data link.

For general information about data links, see Navigating to Related Content with Data Links.

To create data links for APM, see Link logs and other resources to Splunk APM services, traces, and spans.

To view resources that are linked to APM services, traces, or spans, see View linked resources for Splunk APM services, traces, and spans.
