Services API - GET all services

Gets a list of all services in your Dynatrace environment, along with their parameters and relationships.

The full list can be lengthy, so you can narrow it down by specifying filter parameters, like tags. See the Parameters section for more details.

You can additionally limit the output by using the pagination:

  1. Specify the number of results per page in the pageSize query parameter.
  2. Then use the cursor from the Next-Page-Key response header in the nextPageKey query parameter to obtain subsequent pages.

The request produces an application/json payload.

  • Managed https://{your-domain}/e/{your-environment-id}/api/v1/entity/services
  • SaaS https://{your-environment-id}


To execute this request, you need the Access problem and event feed, metrics, and topology (DataExport) permission assigned to your API token. To learn how to obtain and use it, see Tokens and authentication.


The timeframe is restricted to a maximum period of 3 days.

Parameter Type Description In Required
startTimestamp integer

The start timestamp of the requested timeframe, in milliseconds (UTC).

If not set, then 72 hours behind from now is used.

relativeTime string

The relative timeframe, back from now.

query optional
tag array

Filters the resulting set of services by the specified tag. You can specify several tags in the following format: tag=tag1&tag=tag2. The service has to match all the specified tags.

In case of key-value tags, such as imported AWS or CloudFoundry tags, use the following format: tag=[context]key:value. For custom key-value tags, omit the context: tag=key:value.

Filters result to the specified services only.

To specify several services use the following format: entity=ID1&entity=ID2.

query optional
managementZone integer

Only return services that are part of the specified management zone.

includeDetails boolean

Includes (true) or excludes (false) details which are queried from related entities.

Excluding details may make queries faster.

pageSize integer

The number of services per result page.

If not set, pagination is not used and the result contains all services fitting the specified filtering criteria.

query optional

The cursor for the next page of results. You can find it in the Next-Page-Key header of the previous response.

If you're using pagination, the first page is always returned without this cursor.
