This topic explains how to install and configure the Dynatrace Service Broker for Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) dashboard tile. The topic also describes how to set up application monitoring for the Dynatrace SaaS/Managed service by creating an instance of the service and binding it to an application. The Dynatrace Service Broker tile is currently in a beta release phase.
Before you begin
Login with your Dynatrace account.
Select Deploy Dynatrace from the navigation menu.
Click the Set up PaaS integration button.
Your environment ID appears in the Environment ID text box. You'll need this ID to link your Dynatrace account with your PaaS environment. Click Copy to copy the ID to the clipboard. You can do this at any time by revisiting this page.
To generate a PaaS token, click the Generate new token button. The PaaS token is essentially an API token that's used in combination with your environment ID to download Dynatrace OneAgent. As you will notice, there is already a default InstallerDownload token available that you could alternatively use. However, for security reasons, it is recommended that you create several discrete tokens for different environments.
Type in a meaningful name for your PaaS token. A meaningful token name might be the name of the PaaS platform you want to monitor (for example,
openshift). To view and manage your existing PaaS tokens, go to Settings -> Integration -> Platform as a Service.
Click Generate to create the PaaS token. The newly created PaaS token will appear in the list below. Click Copy to copy the generated token to the clipboard. You can do this at any time by revisiting this page and clicking Show token next to the relevant PaaS token.
