Configure a webhook in Dynatrace

Configure webhook endpoints so that Dynatrace can use the endpoint to communicate with Incident Response.

Before you begin

Ensure you have created an account in Dynatrace.

Role required: Responder, Manager, or Administrator

About this task

Dynatrace allows you to define specific thresholds. These thresholds determine when a deviation from baseline performance is severe enough to generate problem alerts. Defining the thresholds is essentially about adjusting the sensitivity of problem detection. You can adapt the sensitivity of anomaly detection either by deviating from automated baselines or by specifying fixed thresholds supported for Application, Services, and Database services. For the following items, sensitivity can be adapted only by specifying fixed thresholds:
  • Infrastructure
  • Plugin events
  • NAM (DC RUM) events
  • Custom alerts
Note: While this integration with a third-party product is supported, the documentation here is based upon information provided by that third-party. More current information about the operation of that third-party’s system may be available from them directly.
