Just a generic question, do we use OTLP exporter or httpclient for creating a service in signoz cloud?

pretty sure you can do this just with the OTLP exporter. Good news I'm working on a demo of this today so I'll get you an answer in a little while.

Hi @Nočnica Mellifera, thank you so much for the response
I was trying to export the activity traces to signoz cloud
so far I can see them on console, I do specify the endpoint and accesstoken in header for OLTP exporter. But dont see any services being created on signoz cloud. Any inputs on this issue?

it's a pretty classic disconnect, I'm going to attach my stripped down Collector config:
Copy code
receivers:
  otlp:
    protocols:
      grpc:
      http:

processors:
  batch:

exporters:
  otlp:
    endpoint: "ingest.us.signoz.cloud:443"
    tls:
      insecure: false
    headers:
      "signoz-access-token": "[ingest key]"

extensions:
  health_check:
  pprof:
  zpages:

service:
  extensions: [health_check, pprof, zpages]
  pipelines:
    traces:
      receivers: [otlp]
      processors: [batch]
      exporters: [otlp]
    metrics:
      receivers: [otlp]
      processors: [batch]
      exporters: [otlp]
    logs:
      receivers: [otlp]
      processors: [batch]
      exporters: [otlp]
so yeah you can use the OTLP exporter to send data into SigNoz cloud
