Advanced system profile configuration using Dynatrace API calls?


Hello, I'm using the REST API calls outlined on https://localhost:8021/api-docs/current/index.html#/System_Profiles but there doesn't seem to be an option to update advanced Agent Group configuration settings (located in <agent> -> "Agent Mapping" -> "Advanced").

Also, I was wondering if you would be able to expand the REST API functionality to allow toggling sensor placements and modifying sensor configuration?

I've heard that Dynatrace 7 will have API enhancements, but will the system profile and system profile template API calls have the above features?

AppMon 7 will provide additional REST APIs - BUT - it will not include features to change sensor properties or advanced settings.

If you want to change sensor configuiration the best is to use the "Configuration" feature in the Systeme Profile where you can provide different configurations on sensor properties stored under a specific configuratio name. Through REST you can then switch the System Profile to a different Configuration which will automatically tell all agents to run with a different Sensor Configuration
