Deployment Events on Dashboard

Is there a way to show deployment events (or any sort of events) from Hosts or Services etc. on the Dashboard? maybe even inside the graphs that contain metrics of these assets?

Events are only located on the entity pages and not tile-able from what I am aware of. A RFE would need to be submitted to get this functionality. 


Where does one see the ingested events? We were hopeful that we could see all ingested events for a given time period. If we send in events under "Custom Info" where would we be able to see them?

Hi @mathias_indermu 

Have You tried to use RELEASES dashboard? Usually what You want to achieve by pulling events on dashboard is global understanding of Your services and their status. RELEASES built-in dashboard show all relevant events for Your processes. It requires releases to be configured and implemented obviously.

Hi All,

Maybe this integration can be useful such cases. This solution pull the Events also via Events API and vizulaize in PowerBI in time order.

I hope it helps.

We are considering just to send metrics instead of deployment events(They are designed pretty useless.)
In this case it will be possible to correlate deployments in all charts.

It's possible to put events on a dashboard (if you're on Grail) with the "fetch events" command (see example in ).

It's pretty disappointing that adding events to a Dashboard is Grail-dependent.  It seems like this will NOT be available to Dynatrace Managed customers.

unfortunately lack of focus or enhancements to managed is concerning ... 

I tested the metrics approach as a workaround - it works
You can send deployment events as metric points with some value e.g. 1 or 100
And correlate 2 charts in Data Explorer, so your deployment dots will be over other chart for instance
