Dynatrace "tags" response field

New Member

Hi all,

I need to retrieve "tags" field from dynatrace using Dynatrace Add-on for Splunk.

Dynatrace API call sends this field into the json response as indicated in documentation page: https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/extend-dynatrace/dynatrace-api/environment-api/synthetic/synt...

Can you help me?

Thank you

Giorgio

Good day...as a current Dynatracer who spent a long time working in the Splunk world, I would suggest you look to move away from the Splunk Add-on for Dynatrace based on a few factors:

  • The App is not available for Splunk 8
  • You deal with troubleshooting issues like these where you're asking questions of an app you need to understand but didn't write.

I recommend using the REST API Modular Input to pull data from the Dynatrace API. You can validate your API calls
and results using something like Postman and then move them over the Modular input rather easily. The REST API Modular input is a long-time and well tested app in the Splunk community which is actively maintained. The only caveat is if you use Splunk Cloud, you will need to use the REST API modular input on a Heavy Forwarder to execute the API calls, and then have it send the data to your proper index on Splunk cloud. This will also ensure you get the entire payload as you would expect from the Dynatrace API, including Tags.
