Dynatrace API

Use the Dynatrace API to automate your monitoring tasks and export different types of data into your third-party reporting and analysis tools. API communication ensures safety by using secured communication via the HTTPS protocol.

API access is limited to 50 requests per minute in the Dynatrace SaaS environment. There is no rate limit for Dynatrace Managed installations. Get in touch with your Dynatrace representative to increase this limit for SaaS environments. The payload size is limited to 1 MB.

Read access to the Dynatrace API is free of charge on a fair use model. You are charged for defining and pushing new custom metrics through the Dynatrace API on a per-metric, per-month basis. For testing and prototyping, you have a free quota of 100 custom metrics per month for each Dynatrace SaaS environment or Dynatrace Managed cluster.
