Set custom value in synthetic and show it in Dashboards

Hello,

 

I would like to be able to set a key-value inside a synthetic script, and then be able to see this value inside a dashboard.

This should be a custom key-value that I can calculate during the synthetic script run, set it as a (maybe global) key-value, and when opening a dashboard the up to date value should be shown.

Is this possible?

We work with NewRelic, and we consider moving to Dynatrace, In NewRelic we could easily do this operation by using $util.insights.set(Key, Value); and then read the value inside the dashboard.

 

Thanks very much.

Hi @george_azzam 

Check the Pre-execution script methods request.addHeader(key,value)

But how can I fetch this data to a Metric inside the dashboard ?!

For example I used:

 

 

request.addHeader("ScansCount", "8765");

 

 

How can  I show the "ScansCount" value/avg/sum/etc inside a metric in a dashboard?

 

-- EDIT --

We work on Clickpath scripts

For that you will need to collect the information from server side with request attribute and calculated metrics then you will be able to chart your metrics with data explorer.
