Dynatrace SaaS release notes version 1.219

RUM: New beacon protocol format

Starting with Dynatrace version 1.219, we will provide you with a Call to action card allowing you to switch all your web application to the latest beacon format. All prior versions will reach its end-of-life with Dynatrace version 1.229. If you don't manage to switch prior to this version, due to the format change, a beacon could be blocked by your firewall/security appliance or if your agents and JavaScript tag versions are outdated, actions will be dropped and you won't be able to see any monitoring data for your application. For more information, see Firewall constraints for RUM.

PaaS token during OneAgent and ActiveGate installation

Dynatrace tokens are displayed only once upon creation. Dynatrace stores them encrypted and you can't reveal them after creation.

To enhance token security, we modified the OneAgent and ActiveGate download dialog. You now have to provide the PaaS token in the dedicated field or create a new token on spot. The token is automatically appended to the provided download and installation commands. For more information, see

Download OneAgent PaaS token

Enhanced pages and page groups filtering

In all multidimensional analysis pages for Real User Monitoring, the Filter by field lists all the matching page and page group names as you type, so that you can select multiple entries containing a string, rather than a single exact match as in previous releases.

Session Replay security and data protection

We have published a document explaining how Session Replay offers best-in-class security and data protection. The document is intended to be shared with your chief information security officers and other stakeholders who decide, based on data protection regulations applicable to your markets, whether you should enable Session Replay. To access the document, go to Application settings for your application and select Session Replay and behavior > Session Replay.

Unlimited problems per query

We have removed the limit of 10,000 problems and events in a single query.

Problem feed enhancements

Now you can filter the problem feed by affected entities.

In addition, new tooltips are available in the problem feed:

  • To list affect entities, hover over the Affected column.
  • To list matching alerting profiles, hover over the Alerting profiles column.

Changes to Windows services availability monitoring

In Dynatrace versions 1.214-1.218, the Windows services availability monitoring configuration at the host level took precedence over the host group configuration, which in turn took precedence over the environment configuration.

In Dynatrace version 219+, this is no longer the case. Configurations at the environment, host group, and host level are combined. For details, see Windows services availability.

Dynatrace API
