In the next step, you will answer a few questions about your account, so we can get to know you better and provide a better setup process and guidance through adopting the Telescope product (takes less than a minute).

Then you will be directed to the Span Search, which is currently empty of data and will contain instructions on how to get started. Those instructions are listed below to keep reading ⬇️

There are multiple ways you can setup your account to start emitting spans and traces to Telescope.

The best way would be to use the Telescope SDK, as it will provide you with easier instrumentation and will automatically capture full request payloads between your microservices (like HTTP body, HTTP headers, DB items, message queues content, and more).

Just choose your language and walk through the instructions to setup:

Python
JavaScript
Java
.NET

Note:
If you want to use your existing OpenTelemetry Collector or the native OpenTelemetry SDK, we support that as well.

Go to the Telescope console

Once you will complete the process of installing the SDK on your application and send your first traces to Telescope, you can visit the Telescope Span Search to start troubleshooting your applications.

👏 Well done! If you reached here you have completed the first installation process.

The next step for you is to experience what Telescope has to offer. You can get more data through the Telescope Product Overview or just play around.
