Dynatrace Managed release notes version 1.184
New features and enhancements
- Multidimensional analysis 2.0: Analyze microservice-based metrics without code changes (Part 2)
Welcome back to the blog series in which we share how you can use multidimensional analysis (MDA) to easily analyze, chart, and report on any kind of data that's available within your microservices.
- Additional security for Synthetic monitor credentials with the new credential vault
With Dynatrace Synthetic Monitoring, you can easily monitor the availability and performance of your applications as experienced by your customers around the world and around the clock. Your applications usually require authentication and authorization (user ID, password, token, or certificate) as part of the business-critical path you wish to monitor (using private or public monitors). […]
- Easily handle proxy configurations in your private browser monitors with Proxy Auto-Configuration (PAC) file support
Private Synthetic locations allow you to monitor internal applications from inside your private network infrastructure. In such a setup, you often need to deal with some kind of proxy configuration. To handle complex proxy configurations, as of Dynatrace and ActiveGate versions 1.183, private browser monitors now also support Proxy Auto-Configuration (PAC) files. What is a […]
- Multidimensional analysis 2.0: Analyze, chart, and report on microservice-based metrics without code changes
Application and transaction-driven KPIs are at the heart of any successful business. Well-defined metrics for your applications and microservices are also at the heart of any technical analysis.
- Easily check configuration changes or environment sign ins with the new Audit logs API
Transparency and traceability of configuration changes are key to enabling multiple teams to collaborate effectively. Audit logs are crucial for tracking changes and security-relevant events. Until now, audit logs were only available to Dynatrace Managed customers.
- Automate your monitoring orchestration with the new Environment API (Early Adopter)
With the newly released Environment API, you can easily tie Dynatrace into your self-service pipeline and automate your monitoring orchestration.
- Ensure great customer experience on your mobile app by monitoring key user actions
From their favorite retailer to their favorite restaurant, today’s customers place great value on every interaction they have with a brand. Consequently, each interaction they have with your mobile app is a make-or-break opportunity for your business to drive lasting customer loyalty. But how do you ensure that your mobile app is not only working […]
- Understand customer experience with Session Replay without compromising data privacy
We've developed Session Replay with data privacy regulations and laws in mind, including GDPR (in Europe), California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), and Brazilian General Data Protection Law (LGPD).
- Get scheduled reports on data that matters to you most by subscribing to dashboards (EA)
Effective monitoring calls for effective reporting. With dashboard subscriptions and scheduled reports, available as an Early Adopter release with version 1.184, Dynatrace now makes your life substantially easier. Turn powerful Dynatrace dashboards into custom reports with just two clicks Dynatrace dashboards support a variety of chart visualizations and tiles. Custom charts allow you to visualize […]
- Additional IP addresses for public alert notifications (customer action required)
Alerting is a crucial aspect of monitoring your web application. Alerts warn you when your web application doesn't meet performance standards so you can respond quickly and fix the issue. To scale up and further guarantee the delivery of all your Dynatrace alerts, we're adding new public IP addresses.
Automated cluster extension with feedback
Cluster node REST API endpoints dedicated for cluster management assist cluster administrators in setting up automation around bootstrapping a new cluster or extending cluster size. Adding a new cluster node is a blocking operation, so no other node can join the cluster at the same time. In large deployments, this operation is time-consuming and can take up to a couple of days. Previously, to check if the operation was finished, a cluster administrator could use a
nodetool script to observe data synchronization in Cassandra databases. The new REST API is a robust alternative solution that can be easily incorporated into scripts or CI/CD pipelines. See the Cluster Management REST API specification for details on path and payload.
Provide Dynatrace Managed as a service to your teams (Early Adopter release)
Environments REST endpoint assists administrators who need to provision Dynatrace environments to other teams at scale. Until now, the process was cumbersome as it required administrators to manually create an environment and a token for further configuration. By providing automation via a new endpoint from the
Cluster API, it's possible to deliver configuration-as-code, unified dashboarding, service naming conventions, and much more with minimal effort. To get started, you need to create a
Service Provider API token in the Cluster Management Console. To get the interface details, use the Dynatrace API Explorer, which is available from the user menu under Cluster Management API. Select the
Cluster API definition:
To create a new environment, use the
POST method combined with the
createToken=true query parameter in order to get an environment-level token in response.
Once you have this, you can continue with the
Environment API or
Configuration API to orchestrate the environment. An upcoming blog post will describe in detail how you can utilize the API to build powerful, manageable, and high-value environments for your teams. Note, the new REST API is still in the Early Adopter release stage and enabled by default.
The JRE was updated to version 8u232 to take advantage of the latest security-vulnerability enhancements and bug fixes.
