The problems API is a family of endpoints that deliver metrics and details about problems that Dynatrace detects within a given environment. The returned list of problems is identical to that shown in the Dynatrace Web UI and within the Dynatrace mobile app. A single problem typically contains summary information, impact analysis, and a list of any events that are correlated with the problem.
The Dynatrace Problems API follows a particular strategy. First, high-level status information is returned by calling the
status endpoint. Then the current problem feed is fetched (minimal problem details included) by calling the
feed endpoint. Once a problem is identified, the API calls the
details endpoint to fetch all detailed information related to the problem. Note that problem details are often large in size.
