Configuring Jaeger Backend

Version v1.35 of Jaeger introduced the ability to receive OpenTelemetry trace data via the OpenTelemetry Protocol (OTLP). This allows to create a new Jaeger backend by simply specifying the Jaeger OTLP gRPC unencrypted URL.

The endpoint format is host:port.

  • host is required
  • port is optional and defaults to the default OTLP gRPC port 4317.
