Dynatrace is a software intelligence platform providing application performance management and cloud infrastructure monitoring.

Types of Assets Fetched

This adapter fetches the following types of assets:

  • Devices
  • Users
  • Vulnerabilities
  • SaaS Applications
  • Compute Services


The Dynatrace adapter connection requires the following parameters:

  1. Dynatrace Domain (for On-Premise) (required for on-prem or FedRAMP environments) - If you are operating your own Dynatrace Managed installation or Dynatrace for Government (FedRAMP), you must specify your Dynatrace domain. This is optional if you are using the commercial SaaS instance of Dynatrace.
  2. Environment ID - Specify the desired environment ID. Each environment that you monitor with Dynatrace is identified with a unique character string (Environment ID).
    • Within Dynatrace SaaS, your Dynatrace environment ID (otherwise known as a tenant ID), is included at the beginning of your Dynatrace environment´s URL:

    • If you are operating your own Dynatrace Managed installation, you can find your environment ID within your custom domain path after the /e/ subpath (see highlight in image below).

    • You can also find your environment ID listed on your Dynatrace account page along with your licensing details. To find this page, click the User button in the upper-right corner of the menu bar and select Account settings.

  3. API Key - Specify the API token that you have created. For more details, see Dynatrace API - Authentication.
  4. API Version (required, default: v1) - Select whether to use API v1 or v2.
  5. Account UUID - Enter an account UUID in order to fetch the users from a different API endpoint that includes more data and user groups. Find the account UUID on the Account > Account management API page, during creation of an OAuth client.
  6. Verify SSL - Select whether to verify the SSL certificate of the server against the CA database inside of Axonius. For more details, see SSL Trust & CA Settings.
  7. HTTPS Proxy (optional) - Connect the adapter to a proxy instead of directly connecting it to the domain.
