Previews and Early Adopter releases

Learn how you can participate in Previews and Early Adopter releases.


Previews provide you with access to new features so that we can hear your feedback and ultimately deliver features that exactly meet your needs.


  • While planned, there is no guarantee that a Preview feature will ever reach GA status.
  • Previewed features can be used free of charge during the Preview period, but they may consume licensing units when they reach GA status.
  • Preview features aren't meant to be used in production environments.
  • Previews aren't covered by our Support team, but rather by product management. SLAs don't apply.
  • Qualifying customers are selected based on technical criteria. Final decisions are made by product management and there is no guarantee of participation.
  • While participating in a Preview, you agree to stay in touch and provide feedback.
  • By participating in a Preview, you agree to contribute a quote related to your experience with the feature you are previewing. Your quote may be used by Dynatrace Marketing in a press release related to the Preview.
  • Previews are available to both SaaS and Managed customers.

The following previews are currently open for participation.

Early Adopter release features

New features are introduced in an Early Adopter release phase on an opt-in basis. Early Adopter release features are publicly available, fully supported, production-ready, and available as a user opt-in. Early Adopter release features consume licensing units in exactly the same way that GA features consume licensing units.

The following Early Adopter release features are currently available:

OneAgent Early Adopter releases

Early Adopter releases introduce new features on an opt-in basis. They are fully supported and production-ready.

  • License unit consumption
    OneAgent Early Adopter release features consume licensing units in exactly the same way that GA features consume licensing units.
  • Scope
    You can enable a OneAgent Early Adopter feature for the entire environment or within just a few process groups for testing purposes.
  • Requirements
    Check the New OneAgent features table for basic requirements:
    • Min. OneAgent version specifies the minimum OneAgent version. You can enable an Early Adopter release only for OneAgents that meet that requirement.
    • Requires restart specifies whether it requires a process restart before it becomes operational.
