Getting started with the Dynatrace Portal

Welcome to the Dynatrace Portal!

This page will help you get started quickly and efficiently with your application performance management. Here, you will find instructions on completing the registration process, logging in to the Portal, the Portal's basic features, and where you can find additional resources.

Completing the registration process

When your user account is set up, you should receive an email with instructions on completing your registration. Click the link in the email to complete the registration process by setting your password and providing answers to challenge questions. You will need to answer these questions if you forget your password or need to reset it. If you did not receive this email, or the link in this email has expired, contact your Portal Administrator.

When you log in to the Portal after completing the registration, you are asked to accept the site's Terms & Conditions. Select I've read and agreed to the Terms and Conditions and click Next. The My profile page appears.
