All external access to your Dynatrace monitoring environment relies on two credential types: an environment ID and an access token.
Each environment that you monitor with Dynatrace is identified with a unique character string—the environment ID. The Dynatrace API relies heavily on environment IDs to ensure that it pulls monitoring data from and pushes relevant external events to the correct Dynatrace environments.
- In Dynatrace SaaS, your environment ID is the first part of your Dynatrace environment's URL:
For example, for the Dynatrace environment
https://abc123a.dynatrace.com, the environment ID is
- In Dynatrace Managed, your environment ID is the string after
/e/in your Dynatrace environment URL:
For example, for the URL address
https://managed-cluster/e/abc123a, the environment ID is
You can also find your environment ID on your Dynatrace account page along with your licensing details. To find this page, click the User menu button in the upper-right corner and select Account settings.
