Generate alert based on exception(s)


Is there a way in Dynatrace Managed to create a problem and be alerted based on a specific exception or a group of exceptions?

For example if my service or application generates a specific exception I would like to be alerted on this exception.

Can I also set thresholds to alert if exception occurs more than 3 times within the last 5 or 10 minutes?

Thank you.

This blog post describes a lot of the new analysis options for exceptions:

But I don't believe you would be able to set up what you're looking for at the moment. There's no metric available for something like a custom alert on a specific type of exception. I'd recommend posting an Idea in the Dynatrace Ideas forum:



Hi Allan,

To add to what James said, you can create custom error rules or add custom exceptions that Dynatrace may not identify as a failed request in the Service -> Error Detection settings. Once you configure this, you can set the percentage of failed requests that should create a problem. This will be set for the entire service or for the key request if the exception is only occurring on one request. See link for more info. Like James said, you cannot create the custom alert based on a specific type of exception.
