I'd like to preface this discussion with the knowledge that I don't exactly quite understand what traces are used for. I believe it is some kind of method to clump all your transactions together so you can observe the flow of the entire application not just the flow of your transaction.
My issue is essentially this, the intake API docs don't specify how to properly create a Trace, so I assumed it would be as simple as generating a trace ID and passing that trace id in on all my JSON, but it would appear as though this does not work. When I go to my traces tab there is nothing there and the % of trace on the transaction is N/A.
What is it that I need to do to properly create a trace using the intake API?
