Manage user groups and permissions

The Dynatrace permission management system makes it easy to manage permissions for groups. The permissions system isn’t based on hierarchical roles, but rather on groups, reflecting Unix- and Windows-based permissions. It enables you to create groups that have pre-defined (fully customizable) permissions sets; users added to a group inherit the permissions of that group.

Permissions are granted based on group assignment. Permissions are granted to groups and users are assigned to groups, as illustrated below:


You can assign a pre-defined set of permissions to a group. Once a group is defined, you can add users to the group. Users inherit the permissions of the groups that they belong to. Any group can be modified to fit your needs. You can even create new groups and assign permissions to them.


Dynatrace provides separate permissions for account and environment users. To get you started, Dynatrace provides a default set of editable groups. You can edit and adapt these default groups to fit your needs or you can create new groups.
