Dynatrace SaaS release notes version 1.229

Dashboards

  • To make more space available to your visualizations, we reduced the margin space for all Data explorer visualization types, and we made legend display optional for graphs and pie charts.
  • To improve tile readability, we increased the font size for tile titles and table headers. We plan to make the font size configurable in an upcoming release.

Application Security

You can now integrate security problem notifications using webhooks.

Service-level objectives

You can now add SLOs to management zones.

Synthetic Monitoring

  • Environment-level outage handling defaults: You can define default outage handling behavior at the environment level for all browser monitors or all HTTP monitors. When enabled, these defaults apply to all browser or HTTP monitors that do not override them with monitor-specific outage handling settings.
  • Number of consecutive failures for global outages: You can now specify the number of consecutive failures (1–5) for a global outage problem, that is, how many times all locations need to fail consecutively in order to generate a global outage problem.
  • Chromium auto-update: You can now enable auto-update of Chromium on all Synthetic-enabled ActiveGates assigned to a private Synthetic location. This setting applies only to Linux-based ActiveGates; on Windows-based ActiveGates, Chromium is always updated during Synthetic engine updates. The minimum ActiveGate version for which Chromium can be auto-updated is 1.223.

Metric events for alerting

Metric events for alerting using the Build tab and advanced query mode now apply the same metric dimension limits that are applied to metric-selector-based configurations.

Metrics API: dimension keys

The Metrics API v2 no longer supports legacy dimension keys in metric selectors. Use dt.entity.<entity_type>, not <entity_type>. For example, for a host dimension, use dt.entity.host, not Host. For more information, see Metric ingestion protocol.

Prometheus metrics

Prometheus metrics from exporters in Kubernetes that aren’t running on a OneAgent-monitored node now consume DDUs.

Injection update

With this release, svchost.exe is excluded from injection. This eliminates certain timeout issues with Windows Server 2019 at boot.

Dynatrace API

To learn about changes to the Dynatrace API in this release, see Dynatrace API changelog version 1.229.
