I have a server "host1" id DT "HOST-XXXXXXXXX1",
the server "host1" have Tags :
and some others sourced by extension
I send the metric affected on it
in a dashboard, I can add a table, and select dimensions sent (dt.entity.host,hostname)
but I can't add Tags of this server in the table
How can I add tags to a dashboard without sending them in ingestion of metrics, to avoid overloading the network, and exploit fully the tagging system.
Solved! Go to Solution.
As far as I can tell, you can't add the tag values on a dashboard as that's not available as a dimension on metrics. You can only use the tag(s) to filter within Dynatrace. Although it's not for dashboard, you could always export the detailed host information via our API which will include tags and many other information.
Hey @Stef_Stouf95 ,
No, such an improvement is not planned at the moment. For built-in metrics, we have the :parents (https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/shortlink/api-metrics-v2-selector#parents-transformation) transformation, which adds some context to such a metric.
However, this doesn't help you with a "custom" metric.
There the only way is, as you said, to ingest this yourself as, yet another dimension, then you can of course split by it.
