Dynatrace APM Plugin

To integrate with Dynatrace, you can use the Dynatrace client to install and configure the Moogsoft alert plugin on your Dynatrace server. Then you set up an incident rule in Dynatrace to forward incidents to the Moogsoft alert plugin.

The Dynatrace APM plugin does not support authentication. The Moogsoft alert plugin does not require authentication.
