Overview

The Dynatrace output will stream analytics and insights to your Dynatrace environment.


Review Parameters

Review the following parameters that you can configure in the Edge Delta App:

YAML Description
name

Enter a descriptive name for the output or integration.

For outputs, this name will be used to map this destination to a workflow.

This parameter is required. 

Review the following example:

name: dynatrace
integration_name

This parameter only appears when you create an individual output.

This parameter refers to the organization-level integration created in the Integrations page. If you enter this name, then the rest of the fields will be automatically populated.

If you need to add multiple instances of the same integration into the config, then you can add a custom name to each instance via the name field. In this situation, the name should be used to refer to the specific instance of the destination in the workflows.

This parameter is optional. 

Review the following example:

integration_name: orgs-influxdb
type

Enter dynatrace.

This parameter is required. 

Review the following example:

type: dynatrace
log_endpoint 

Enter the Dynatrace log endpoint. 

This parameter is required. 

Review the following example:

log_endpoint: "https://{your-environment-id}.live.dynatrace.com/api/v2/logs/ingest"
metric_endpoint 

Enter the Dynatrace metric endpoint. 

This parameter is required. 

Review the following example:

metric_endpoint: "https://{your-environment-id}.live.dynatrace.com/api/v2/metrics/ingest"
token 

Enter the Dynatrace log token.

You must enter a token to support log streaming. 

This parameter is optional. 

Review the following example:
