UEM-PurePath integration for Synthetic Monitoring

The UEM-PurePath Integration for Synthetic Monitoring lets you drill down directly from the Dynatrace Portal into Application Monitoring, showing the PurePath and UEM data related to your synthetic tests in the AppMon Client.

To use the UEM-Purepath integration for Synthetic Monitoring, you need to change a few settings on both sides of the integration:

  • Configure the AppMon Server integration with the Dynatrace Portal. See Enabling UEM-PurePath Integration for Synthetic Monitoring to learn how. In addition, you may need to verify the security rules related to synthetic monitoring traffic.
  • In the Dynatrace Portal, configure the Dynatyrace AppMon settings in the Account Details page to define the AppMon Server for integration. See Account Settings in the Synthetic Monitoring help for details.

Note

Note: You can also set up a similar PurePath integration with Keynote Synthetic Monitoring. See Keynote PurePath Measurements for more details.

Viewing Data in AppMon

To enable the integration with Synthetic Monitoring, go to the Start Center > Monitor Applications > Monitor Synthetic Transactions and select the end user perspective or server-side links that open monitoring dashboards. When using real-browser replay in Dynatrace Synthetic Monitoring, open the end user perspective view. Otherwise, open the server-side view.

The first time you select this feature, additional measures and business transactions are created that are needed for that integration. AppMon captures Synthetic Monitoring requests and shows details on response times for every monitored transaction in the dashboard.

The built-in Business Transaction Visits by User Experience and Country is used to calculate the Apdex distribution of the available visits. If your visit-related data seem to be inconsistent or incomplete, verify the following structure of the business transaction:

  • Name: Visits by User Experience and Country
  • Calculate Results
    • Visit: count, aggregation: sum
  • Split Results
    • Country of Visits - metric: Visits - Geo Information
    • User Experience of Visits - metric: Visits - User Experience
