Docker Hub Image - Active Gate





Where can we find image for active gate?

On the Docker Hub, we only found images for dynatrace-operator and oneagent:

For running ActiveGate in k8s environments (for routing traffic and k8s monitoring), the image is pulled from your Dynatrace environment along with OneAgent images. 

Running standalone ActiveGates for other purposes it not supported from containers at this time, so there are no images for ActiveGates. 

From the documentation:

An ActiveGate can be deployed in the conventional manner—on a physical or virtual host—this is classic ActiveGate.
An ActiveGate packaged in a container is referred to as a cloud-native ActiveGate.

Hi @Julius_Loman,


The request here is to pull the AG image as OA & operator images directly from Docker HUB in order to store them in private registry.

We know that there is no problem to fetch AG image from dynatrace cluster, but our automation team ask to pull all images from Docker HUB and we wonder why its messing....

Any suggestions ?





Afaik in the latest operator v0.3, both images - OA and AG are pulled from your tenant (Dynatrace cluster). I don't remember the embedded AG images were ever located on docker HUB.

They need use your Dynatrace environment to pull them from as described in

So, why is there an OA installation in Docker Hub?


OA image is there for ages. OA is supported also in non-k8s installations running in a container. This had been running and supported event before k8s was cool 😀

Are stand alone active gates in containers on the road map? if we want to have all of our monitoring infrastructure on k8s but support some of our legacy apps that run on iis vms for example will that be possible?


I would also like to be able to run activegate containerized, this would mean that we could move a bit higher up in the stack, and leverage AKS / Azure Containers etc.

Hi @tarjei and @lbruhns,


Maybe this documentation helps you.


Deploy ActiveGate in Kubernetes/OpenShift as a StatefulSet | Dynatrace Docs


I do not remember exactly but at one of our customers on an unsupported OKD cluster we have already installed a containerized AG based on this documentation and it works fine.
