is it possible to use parameters e.g. for a host to display in dashboards? There should also be menus (dropdown, checkbox etc.) to select parameters. Is this possible?
I'm used to have this and a lot more features in splunk or grafana dashboards.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The Dynatrace solution is absolutely in no way as refined and easy to use as Grafana and Splunk but recently they did add something (limited as it may be).
Thanks, we already use this filters, but this is only a really small part of what I would like to use in dashboards.
We monitor a lot of metrics for all monitored hosts. I would like to implement a dashboard, where I can select a host or several hosts in a dropdown and than display some metrics in graphs and tables for the selected host. It should also be possible to use the selected values in graph (filters) or in markdown links, in headers etc. etc.
I see really many use cases to have more flexible and more generally usable dashboards. For now, the dashboards in dynatrace are still very limited to use and to configure.
The scenario with filtering on or multiple hosts should be possible with dynamic filters, as referenced above by @ct_27 using a "Custom dimension" that, when you pick "Host" in the settings menu, offers you a list of all your hosts in your environment.

Regarding the other mentioned topics, that would be a product idea. https://community.dynatrace.com/t5/Community-user-guide/Product-Ideas/ba-p/159825
