I have been looking around to find out when the new Data Explorer charts will be mandatory in Dynatrace SaaS. Where can I get this information please.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The Data Explorer is still an early adopter. I cannot tell you if the "old" custom chart will be removed, but certainly, in a not so distant future, the data explorer will likely become the default.
Data Explorer is more powerful, but there are still features available in the old custom chart that the Explorer does not have yet.
To provide our final answer to this: https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/shortlink/dashboards-upgrade
This means since 1.266 we already removed Custom charts to be available in the Data explorer, actively preventing you to create new ones.
We are currently in a grace period where the Code still exists but we are already discussing when to finally rip it out.
I will update the docs and here once this happens.
