Dynatrace APM Plugin

To integrate with Dynatrace you can install and configure a plugin on your Dynatrace server, then set up a rule in Dynatrace to forward incidents to the plugin.

The Dynatrace APM Plugin integration does not require authentication. The integration listens without requiring password information.

When you use the integrations UI, you can only configure the visible properties. If you want to implement a more complex Dynatrace APM Plugin LAM with custom settings, see Configure the Dynatrace APM Plugin LAM.

See the Dynatrace documentation for details on Dynatrace components.

Before You Begin

The Dynatrace APM Plugin integration has been validated with Dynatrace APM v 6.5 and v. 7.0. Before you start to set up your integration, ensure you have met the following requirements:

  • You have an active Dynatrace account.

  • You have the necessary permissions to install and configure a plugin in Dynatrace.

  • You know the path to your Dynatrace installation, for example C:\Program Files\Dynatrace\Dynatrace<version>\server.

  • You have the necessary permissions to edit incident rules in Dynatrace.

  • Dynatrace can make requests to external endpoints over port 443.

Configure the Dynatrace APM Plugin Integration

To configure the Dynatrace APM Plugin integration:

  1. Navigate to the Integrations tab.

  2. Click Dynatrace APM Plugin in the Monitoring section.

  1. Download the Moogsoft Alert Plugin to a location where you can open the Dynatrace client.

  2. Use the Manage Plugins tool in the Dynatrace client to install the plugin.

  3. Open and configure the Moogsoft Alert Plugin properties as follows:

    Property Name

    Moog REST URL

    The URL of the Dynatrace APM Plugin LAM along with its default port. For example http://localhost:48004

  5. Change the visibility of the fields if desired and apply your changes.

  6. Add the Moogsoft Alert Plugin to a Rule Action for an Incident Rule.
