Can't see Zipkin Server when using Spring Initializer . Has it been removed? What is the alternative?
Zipkin Server is not part of Spring initializers. You have to use the official release of the Zipkin server
And custom servers are not supported anymore meaning you can't use
@EnableZipkinServer anymore since 2.7
Lately I have been trying the same and couldn't find that option in initializer. I am just posting this if anyone encounters the same issues and lands on this page. You can refer below sample GitHub project which is consists of four micro services ( zipkin server, client, rest service, and Eureka ) using Edgware release with latest version of sleuth.
Sample Zipkin Server/Client
Spring has deprecated the Zipkin UI and Zipkin server from Spring Boot. You will need to setup external Zipkin server or add the pom as specified above.
You can refer to below URL to setup Zipkin server:
