Dynatrace AppMon Integration Guide

Dynatrace AppMon provides deep application monitoring and performance lifecycle management, allowing you to monitor and optimize every single transaction with gap-free code-level data. It can be easily configured to send alerts to PagerDuty, thus allowing you to take advantage of PagerDuty’s comprehensive alerting and incident tracking functionality. The guide below describes how to integrate your Dynatrace AppMon installation with PagerDuty.

    • If you are adding your integration to an existing service, click the name of the service you want to add the integration to. Then click the Integrations tab and click the Add a new integration.
  3. Select your app from the Integration Type menu and enter an Integration Name. If you are creating a new service for your integration, in General Settings, enter a Name for your new service.
