The user interface is sometimes kind of confusing to understand. It's not very user-friendly. They should work to improve this aspect of the product. It should be easier to navigate. While the configuration is not that difficult and you can follow the instructions in the AWS documentation, it's also not so easy to understand what exactly you have to do to configure everything. For example, in our applications, sometimes it's not clear the points I have to direct the interceptors to have the perfect trace of the endpoint. In fact, right now I'm working on a ticket here to solve a problem where the interceptor break is interrupted at a certain point due to a problem of configuration. Between local services and AWS services, I'm working with tasks. These tasks use threads, and they are kind of getting lost due to the threads. In these cases, the configuration is a little bit difficult to understand in terms of what to do.
