Dynatrace SaaS release notes version 1.218

RUM web: Page change events

Find and analyze your page change events, including all the automatically detected page loads and route changes of your web application, on the user session detail page. Page change events are displayed on both the Timeline and Session Replay tabs.

Release monitoring settings

The Issue-tracking system list in the issue-tracking queries for release monitoring settings page has been modified to split the Jira options into on-premises and cloud. The old Jira option is marked as deprecated and will be removed in a future release. Please make sure to create new issue-tracking configurations based on your issue-tracking system.

Log Monitoring v2

With Dynatrace SaaS version 1.218, the new version of Log Monitoring is available for trial accounts. The following Dynatrace components are required to fully benefit from the Log Monitoring v2:

  • Dynatrace SaaS version 1.218+
  • Dynatrace OneAgent version 1.187+
  • Dynatrace Environment ActiveGate version 1.217+

With Log Monitoring, you have a new way to:

Possible change in ISP names

Internet Service Provider (ISP) names for RUM user sessions are now resolved using the MaxMind database. If an ISP name changes, it is more accurate now. For example, a full ISP name rather than just an upper case acronym.

Session Replay sharing

You can now share a Session Replay recorded session as a link to an exact point in the timeline.

Private Synthetic location utilization

You can now analyze the utilization level of your private Synthetic locations in global settings (Settings > Web and mobile monitoring > Private synthetic locations). You can see if they're overloaded and make educated decisions on adding more Synthetic-enabled ActiveGates if you wish to run additional monitors. Each private Synthetic location in the list is marked in green/yellow/red indicating overall capacity-utilization status. You can also see the type and number of synthetic monitors assigned to each location. Synthetic-enabled ActiveGate version 217+ is required.

Declarative process grouping

Starting with this release, your custom process group definitions are migrated to Declarative process grouping available at Settings > Processes and containers. For OneAgents version 1.217+, only changes made to declarative process grouping settings will have an effect from now on. For more information, see Declarative process grouping.

Custom metric metadata

You can now provide metadata for custom ingested metrics.
