Is it possible though REST or command line to automate the creation of a System Profile (at least genericly or somewhat specifically if you have multiple application in different locations) or agent installations on application servers?
We have some thoughts on trying to have our customers just select from a service list in or to at least deploy through an orchestration automated process the agent and create the system profile.
Or is this product to specialized to do that?
right now with version (6.2) you can use the Plugin installation REST interface to deploy a dynatrace fastpack (which could contain only a system profile). The disadvantage of that call is that it submits a dtp file (zip archive) that contains the systemprofile and which has to be created upfront (name etc).
(see here Plugin Management (REST))
Subsequent calls canbe made to make further modifications to the system profile (like agent group creation etc).
The good news is however that we are working on extending this automation interfaces.
