Aggregate multiple LDAP groups to a single Dynatrace user group Dynatrace now allows you to map a single Dynatrace user group to multiple LDAP groups. This enables more effective configuration of access rights, without requiring duplication of groups and configurations in cases where multiple LDAP groups share the same access rights.

Dynatrace Managed feature update, Version 126

Improved LDAP integration To improve support for large LDAP directories, we’ve changed how we handle groups and users in LDAP. For Dynatrace installations that are migrated from earlier versions, we now only show those LDAP groups that have configured access rights for Dynatrace. To use another group, just create a new group in Dynatrace and give it the same name as a pre-existing LDAP group. With this approach, the new… read more

Dynatrace Managed feature update, Version 124

Support for automated Dynatrace Cluster installations Currently, before a new Dynatrace Servier cluster installation can be used, your system administrator must go to the Dynatrace Managed web UI to set their password and email address. While this is fine for manual installations, it’s impractical for automated installations. With this in mind, we’ve added some additional installer parameters that facilitate Dynatrace Server configuration without visiting the web UI: --initial-environment --initial-first-name… read more

Manual configuration of IP addresses for cluster nodes To simplify the installation of Dynatrace within complex networks (where auto-detected IP addresses typically aren’t usable as endpoints for OneAgent traffic or the Dynatrace web UI), Dynatrace now enables you to manually specify public IP addresses for cluster nodes. This feature is particularly valuable for installations of Managed cluster in cloud and hybrid cloud scenarios where multiple interfaces and IP-forwarding may be set up. read more

All Dynatrace installers are now signed and validated To further improve the security of Dynatrace Managed, we now sign all Dynatrace Managed installers. Now when a Dynatrace Managed installation is upgraded, the signature of the new installer is automatically verified. The installation proceeds only if the installer signature is verified. For the initial installation of new cluster nodes, you can validate the signature manually. All the instructions you need are… read more
