Previously, the Prometheus special agent would query the endpoint `/api/v1/targets` regardless of what was configured in the Prometheus rule. This was an additional burden on users, which did not specify any scrape targets and therefore do not need this endpoint. E.g., it can lead to additional timeouts. With this werk, the endpoint `/api/v1/targets` is only queried if necessary.
