This extension uses the Confluent Metric Export API to gather metrics.
First you will need to create either a Cloud/Cluster API Key and Secret. This can be done via the Confluent UI or via their CLI. The MetricsViewer role is required to access the Confluent API. It is suggested to use the Organization scope for this role so it can be used as clusters are created or destroyed.
In Dynatrace, then create a new Monitoring Configuration and select "Monitor Remotely without OneAgent" near the bottom on the Monitoring Source Screen.
In the Dynatrace Monitoring Configuration the Confluent Cloud API Key and API Secret are used as the Basic Auth User (API Key) /Password (API secret) combination.
Next you'll create a URL with your resource types and IDs at the end, similar to what is shown below. This URL supports multiple resources but it is recommended to not have more than 5 to 10 per URL.
