How do I determine Azure Supporting Services name to use the API?




I am trying to use the API to create new Azure Cloud link with some services added, but no name is documented under the name description for the AzureSupportingService field:


name string

The name of the supporting service.


 Azure credentials API - POST new credentials | Dynatrace Docs


How should I "guess" the service names in this case?

I believe it is due to the field being optional. You can keep the filed null, check if id can be used to refer a object.





I don't think you got my question. I am interested in finding out the supported values for the name of the supporting services. This is what actually blocks me from fully making use of the API endpoint.

In that case, just check out a GET call to fetch all names using get method. Refer documentation for azure credentials

Azure credentials API - GET all credentials | Dynatrace Docs


I appreciate your help, but you're not answering what I asked.

I don't need to GET my existing Azure credentials, I am trying to create a new Azure credential via the API but there is a documentation gap for the AzureSupportingService object which simply blocks me to configure the credentials as I want since I can not make a POST with the additional services I am interested in.

I've tried those prior raising this question. All of them result in a 400 status code, bad payload error. I have attached the response for a couple of them here.


They don't even work on the validator endpoint.

Configuration API

To get a list of all Azure supporting services on your cluster by current version using the Azure credentials API, issue the GET /azure/credentials/supportedServices request.

Thanks for the update. This is exactly what I needed!


Was this endpoint added with the latest API version? Cause it was missing until recently.

Yes, it's pretty recent (earlier this year) - and long overdue. 

I hope we can expand it to list all supported metric names, too. Not done yet, though.



Does anyone know how to custom the Azure Spring app instance name which the embedded OneAgent automatically generate?   Also, how about customizing the instance's host name?
