Push Dynatrace-detected problems to your Microsoft Teams channels

Microsoft Teams is one of the most popular enterprise team communication platforms these days. Team communication platforms are widely used by DevOps teams to notify members about critical situations, discuss remediation actions, and trigger follow-up actions.

Dynatrace problem details can be fed into your Microsoft Teams channels so that your teams are always aware of potential risks within your applications, services, and infrastructure.
