Log Analysis Service to have multiple indexes

Currently when Loading Kibana from IBM Cloud, we are presented with a default index which translates to our unique UID tenant code.
This index is a placeholder for all logs generated from the account, regardless of service. This means that we have only one centralized index hosting logs for all services, clusters and consequently containers. This provide problems on the creation of objects, visualizations as all separation of log would be done through custom querying this unified index.

Would like to be able to create an index a define what types of logs are pushed.

Please review the new service ( and if your request needs additional consideration after undestanding the new feature of the LogDNA offering, please reopen the idea. Thanks.
