We are being tasked to monitor the Azure Search service and was wondering if it was possible to use the Dynatrace extension to do so. There is a REST API for Search but I don't believe it gives infrastructure details.
Azure Search is a fully managed service which can only be accessed through it's REST API. If the application who is using Azure Search is instrumented/monitored with Dynatrace, then you will see the Http REST calls into the Azure Search service including response times etc.
But it's not possible to add our extensions to azure search nor put our OneAgent somehow manually on it to get infrastructure details of the service.
