You now have the ability to retain span data for longer than three days, without creating a stream.
By default, the retention window for span data (including example traces) is three days from the time you make the query. Each query from a chart and each visit to the Service directory returns up to the past three days of data that match the query.
Cloud Observability now offers a retention window of longer than three days. Contact your customer success representative for more information.
