Integrations configuration

AppMon 2018 April
AppMon 2018 October

This feature is only available in AppMon 2018 April and later.

The Integration pane of the Dynatrace Server Settings dialog box allows you to manage the Dynatrace environments configured in AppMon for integration. Each environment listed indicates whether Data export or PurePath Drill-Down or both are enabled for this environment.

Pre-requisites

You should be ready to provide:

  • The URL of the Dynatrace environment to which you want to link PurePaths or data export. Its format is one of the following:
    • Managed https://{your-domain}/e/{your-environment-id}/
    • SaaS https://{your-environment-id}.live.dynatrace.com/
  • A Dynatrace module token. See section below to learn how to obtain it.

Obtaining Dynatrace module token

To obtain a Dynatrace module token:

  1. In your Dynatrace environment, navigate to Settings > Integration > Dynatrace modules.
  2. Click Generate token for Dynatrace AppMon.
  3. Give a meaningful name to your token and click Generate.

The Dynatrace module integration page shows all the module tokens available to you. To use the token, expand the row of the required AppMon module token and click Copy.

  1. In the AppMon Client click Settings > Dynatrace server > Integration.
  2. Click Add to add a new integration or double-click an existing one to edit it.
  3. In the Environment name field, set a meaningful name for the Dynatrace environment you're going to integrate. It will be used throughout the AppMon UI.
  4. In the Dynatrace URL field, set the URL of your Dynatrace environment.
  5. Select the integration options. See sections below for more details.
  6. Click Test connection to verify connectivity between AppMon and Dynatrace.
  7. When finished, click OK.

PurePath drilldown for Dynatrace

This integration comes handy when you use both AppMon and Dynatrace. It allows you to drilldown from a PurePath in Dynatrace to the same PurePath in AppMon and vice versa.

To activate it, select the Enable PurePath Drill-Down for Dynatrace checkbox. Make sure that the External AppMon WebUI URL shows the right address of web interface of your AppMon instance.

See the Link PurePaths between Dynatrace and AppMon page in Dynatrace help to learn about required configuration on the Dynatrace side.

Data export for Dynatrace

With this integration AppMon works as an external data source sending monitoring data to Dynatrace, consolidating all your data into a single pane of glass.

To activate it, select the Enable Data Export for Dynatrace checkbox.

If you can't connect to your Dynatrace server directly, you can use an ActiveGate as a proxy. Select the Use ActiveGate checkbox, and set its URK in the ActiveGate URL field.

See the Incorporate AppMon monitoring data into Dynatrace page in Dynatrace help to learn about required configuration on the Dynatrace side.
