Interacting with Zipkin

Hi, I'd like to read Elasticsearch Tracing Data by utilizing Openshift Zipkin. Has anyone had experience with this or how I would proceed?

Hi @Rietty,
Elastic APM consists of agents instrumenting applications and services, then forwarding the data to the Elastic APM Server which does some processing and ingests the data into Elasticsearch. The APM Server does not offer direct support for receiving data from Zipkin agents.
You could try to use the open-telemetry zipkin collector for collecting the data from the zipkin agent and then use the open-telemetry elastic exporter to forward the data to the APM Server.

I haven't tested this route, but it looks like all the pieces would be there and could be plumbed togeter.
