Monitor multiple GCP projects

You can push metrics to Dynatrace from multiple GCP projects. For example, you can run dynatrace-gcp-function in a project dedicated to monitoring, and get metrics from production, stage, or development projects.

There are two ways you can set up monitoring for multiple GCP projects: using the gcloud CLI or in the GCP console. See below for instructions.

Prerequisites

To add projects to monitoring using the gcloud CLI

  1. Create IAM roles.

Note: Be sure to replace <your-desired-project-ID> with the ID of your desired project.

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/dynatrace-oss/dynatrace-gcp-function/master/gcp_iam_roles/dynatrace-gcp-function-metrics-role.yaml
gcloud iam roles create dynatrace_function.metrics --project=<your-desired-project-ID> --file=dynatrace-gcp-function-metrics-role.yaml
  1. Grant required IAM policies to the IAM service account for your desired projects.

Note: Be sure to replace <your-desired-project-ID> with the ID of your desired project, and <your-GCP-project-ID> with the ID of the project where the IAM service account was created.

gcloud projects add-iam-policy-binding <your-desired-project-ID> --member="serviceAccount:dynatrace-gcp-function-sa@<your-GCP-project-ID>.iam.gserviceaccount.com" --role=projects/<your-GCP-project-ID>/roles/dynatrace_function.metrics
  1. Repeat step 1 for all the other projects you want to monitor.

  2. Enable permission for service usage booking. optional

If you want to set up service usage booking, you need to enable the serviceusage.services.use permission for your IAM service account. For details about configuring serviceUsageBooking see Parameters.

It takes about a minute for the metrics from the newly configured projects to appear in the Dynatrace web UI.

Note: For GKE deployment, you must restart your Kubernetes container after adding projects to monitoring.
