Subscribe to dashboard reports

Users with access to a dashboard can subscribe to email reports (weekly, monthly, or both) that are specific to that dashboard.

  • Weekly subscribers receive the report every Monday (generated at midnight between Sunday and Monday).
  • Monthly subscribers receive the report on the first Monday of the month (generated at midnight between Sunday and Monday).

Each dashboard report email contains a public link with the respective timeframe. Reports can be viewed without entering Dynatrace credentials. With this approach, report emails can be forwarded to external recipients who don't have access to Dynatrace.
