    Hi Mohammed


    Have you applied the permissions on the Postgresql Statistics Collector Table to your user used to connect? You need READ permissions in the Statistics Tables from Postgresql Database.

    If yes, verify if your dynatrace collector plugin have permission to connect on the Postgresql Service/Database.
    Check it on the file pg_hba.conf. The line is like that:

    host all postgres trust
    host all all trust

    I had the same problem and the solution was add the IP from my Dynatrace Collector used to execute plugins.
