503 Service Unavailable for Web App and Kudo

The Dynatrace site extension registers IIS modules at installation time.

This setting will give you access to Kudo once again. Please then re-install the site extension and set WEBSITE_PRIVATE_EXTENSIONS=1 (or remove the setting entirely). Following application restart, everything should work again, including AppMon monitoring.
