    OpenTelemetry HTTPS Instrumentation for Node.js

    NPM Published Version dependencies devDependencies Apache License

    This module provides automatic instrumentation for https.

    For automatic instrumentation see the @opentelemetry/node package.


    npm install --save @opentelemetry/plugin-https


    OpenTelemetry HTTPS Instrumentation allows the user to automatically collect trace data and export them to their backend of choice, to give observability to distributed systems.

    To load a specific plugin (HTTPS in this case), specify it in the Node Tracer's configuration.

    const { NodeTracerProvider } = require('@opentelemetry/node');
    const provider = new NodeTracerProvider({
      plugins: {
        https: {
          enabled: true,
          // You may use a package name or absolute path to the file.
          path: '@opentelemetry/plugin-https',
          // https plugin options

    To load all of the supported plugins, use below approach. Each plugin is only loaded when the module that it patches is loaded; in other words, there is no computational overhead for listing plugins for unused modules.

    const { NodeTracerProvider } = require('@opentelemetry/node');
    const provider = new NodeTracerProvider();

    See examples/https for a short example.
