Filter Service by environment

Unless i have missed the way to do this, it seems that there is no simple way to filter Service by environment in APM. I have only been able to filter using discover.
It would be nice to be able to add filters in the same way we can do on Dashboards and Visualizations, so i could filter out production environment data from development data.
Is there a way to do this or is it planned in future versions?

Hi cmoi!

Thank you for your interest in Elastic APM.
Filtering by environment is definitely on our radar and something we've discussed doing.
I can't give you any timeline unfortunately.

Your best bet in the mean-time is simply to append the environment name to the name of the service when you specify it in the agent configuration. For example, for Node.js (untested):

var apm = require('elastic-apm-node').start({
  serviceName: 'myservice' + process.env.NODE_ENV,

Hope that helps!


Thank you roncohen,

I will do that in settings for Django in my case:

    'SERVICE_NAME': 'myservice-development',
    'ENVIRONMENT': 'development',
