Deploy & configure Dynatrace

Dynatrace Managed (Managed deployments only)

If you're setting up a Dynatrace Managed deployment, your first step is to obtain a Dynatrace Managed license. Following that, you can install Dynatrace Managed. Dynatrace SaaS customers should skip this step and begin by installing ActiveGate.

Dynatrace ActiveGate

Dynatrace ActiveGate serves as a proxy between Dynatrace OneAgent and Dynatrace Server. ActiveGate is highly recommended for both SaaS and Managed deployments.

Dynatrace OneAgent

Dynatrace OneAgent is responsible for collecting all monitoring data within your monitored environment.


Don't have access to your application's web server? Consider these other deployment options.

  • If you don't have access to your web server and can't install OneAgent you can set up agentless monitoring.
  • If setting up agentless monitoring isn't feasible in your environment, try the RUM browser extension.
  • For applications that can't be monitored by OneAgent, like traditional rich-client applications, digital service terminals (for example, ATMs), or smart IoT applications, use Dynatrace OpenKit.
