There are tens of thousands of questions, product ideas, and other types of content in the Dynatrace forumsThankfully, there are many options to quickly find the specific content that you need. 

 

Search 

This is the quickest way to find information that you are looking for in the Dynatrace Community. 

Each page has a search bar at the top of the page. Use it to find any type of post (including ideas, questions, and articles), as well as users and places in the forums. Just type what youre looking for and press Enter to see results. 

 

Suggestions are displayed as you type in the search bar, which can save you some time. 

 

If you go to the search results page, you’ll see options to sort the results:  

  • Best match 
  • Date 
  • Number of views 
  • Number of kudos (likes) 
  • Number of replies

You can also narrow your search by these options: 

  • Location in the forum 
  • Author of the content 
  • Date 
  • Metadata (if the question was solved, and has a best answer or the post was kudosed/liked) 
  • Type of post (whether it is a question, idea, blog post, TKB, or just a normal post in the forum) 
  • Contains (image, video, or attachment)

If you want to narrow your search even further, you can use advanced search modifiers in the search bar: 

  • Use quotes to search for an "exact phrase" 
  • Use the plus sign to search for +one +or +more +words 
  • Use the minus sign to -exclude -certain -words from your search 

You can also use “Advanced Search” to set up how search results are displayed: 

  • Ithe form of a topic or post 
  • Number of posts to display per page 
  • Whether you want to see the topics without replies 

When you search for a question, search results show you if it has an accepted answer or not. 

 

Navigation 

If you are not looking for a particular post and are more interested in a specific topic, you can just use the top navigation to go to a particular subforum 

 

We’ve restructured the forum list so that you can find searched topics in the fastest way possible. The most popular subjects, like Dashboards or Alerting, now have their own place. At glance, youre able to see what are the hottest discussions for the topic at the moment and what other users are asking about. 

You can subscribe to each subforum, so tracking subject youre interested in is easier than ever.
