The Google App Engine standard environment type supports applications that run on Java, .NET, Node.js, Golang, and more. For custom Docker images, Google App Engine provides flexible environment support.
Integrate OneAgent into the application image
To integrate OneAgent into a container deployment with a Dockerfile in Google App Engine flexible environment and activate instrumentation of your application, add the commands below to your current Dockerfile, making sure to enter your own values for the
<environmentID>should be replaced with your Dynatrace environment ID. If you’re using Dynatrace Managed, you need to provide your Dynatrace Server URL (
<token>should be replaced with the PaaS token mentioned in the prerequisites.

unzip commands above might fail if they aren't provided by the base image.
Deploy the application image
After integrating the OneAgent into the application Docker file, deploy the application. In order to do this, switch to the directory of the application that contains the
Dockerfile and the
app.yaml file, and run the following command in the
gcloud app deploy
Google App Engine will take care of building the Docker image based on the Docker file provided, and thereby of downloading and installing the OneAgent code-modules into the application image.
Every time you want to update your version of Dynatrace OneAgent, you must redeploy your application. Google App Engine thus rebuilds the application image with the latest OneAgent components. Any newly started containers from this application image is then monitored with the latest version of OneAgent.
