Set up management zones
Management zones are comprised of rules that define which entities and dimensional data (such as metrics) can be accessed within each management zone. Management-zone rules (as well as automatic tagging rules) are based on the same powerful Dynatrace conditional decision engine. In combination with user and group permissions, you can set up management zones to create multiple overlapping partitions in your environment to promote observability, collaboration, and security.
Create a management zone
You can create any number of management zones in your Dynatrace monitoring environment.
Go to Settings > Preferences > Management zones (or select the Management zones settings page from search results).
Select Add new management zone.
Provide a Management zone name and Description.
Create management-zone rules governing which entities and data are part of and accessible within the management zone. These rules for entities and dimensional data are based on two approaches: a UI-based approach and a text-based approach leveraging the powerful entity selector of the Environment API v2.
Select a rule (for example, Web aplications in the image above) > Preview entities to see the Matching entities.

- How to add a service-level objective to a management zone so users with access to the management zone can view SLO status and error budget in the Service-level objectives page.
Assign access rights to management zones
After you set up a management zone, define which user groups should have access to the management zone and at what level.
Go to your Accounts view. User and group permission controls are available when you sign in at https://account.dynatrace.com. You can also access Account settings from the User menu in the menu bar.
