Actions

Learn more about the integration template's actions.

Web App Hierarchy

This action sends HTTP requests on a scheduled interval to collect topology data from Dynatrace.

Source

You could customize the trigger type, trigger conditions, and expressions or use the defaults from this tab. This action has a trigger condition that filters the data, so it will only collect Dynatrace "applications" and related "services" of type "web service."

Field Map

You could customize the field, value, and conditional mappings that suit your requirements or use the defaults from this tab.

Recommendations

Learn more about our recommendations about the integration template.

Correlation

We recommend sticking with the out-of-the-box correlation unless you're familiar with the integration and the specifics' integrated systems. You could contact our support team for assistance before making further correlation configuration changes.

Mapping

The predefined templates comply with the specifics of the integrated systems; however, we recommend confirming if your integrated systems have required fields so that you could set them in the field mapping. Note that action might fail if a required field is missing. You could review the troubleshooting page for more information about the action's execution history in such a case.
