      Description

      Bug description

      The AM 6.0.0 Overview dashboard's Sessions section includes various queries which intended to only refer to "proper" sessions - authentication sessions should not have been included. Unfortunately, the Prometheus queries used attempt to use wildcard filters to exclude authentication session metrics but wildcards are not supported in this context.

      How to reproduce the issue

      1. Enable AM monitoring and Prometheus endpoint
      2. Setup AM sample dashboards in Grafana
      3. Start a new authentication (but do not complete login)
      4. Observe the affect to session creation panels
      Expected behaviour
      Session creation panels should not be affected as only an authentication session has been created.
      
      Current behaviour
      Session creation panels show an increase.
      

      Work around

      Customers can manually update their dashboard definitions to use session_type!"authentication-client-based|authentication-cts-based|authentication-in-memory" rather than session_type!"authentication-*" as the session type filter on all panels within the Sessions section of the AM Overview dashboard.
