    2. Select the name of the cluster for which you want to disable data collection that is sent to observability.

    4. Create the label that disables the observability collection by adding the following label:

    5. Select Add to add the label.
    6. Select Done to close the list of labels.

Note: When a managed cluster with the observability component is detached, the metrics-collector deployments are removed.
