exploit Tags in Dashboard

Hi


Use case :


i have a server "host1" id DT "HOST-XXXXXXXXX1",
the server "host1" have Tags :


datacenter:DC1
environment:DEV

and some others sourced by extension


I send the metric affected on it


custom.mymetric,dt.entity.host=HOST-XXXXXXXXX1,hostname=host1 100


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

 

thanks

Hi There, 
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.
Thanks,

Imran

Hi Imran,

 

Do you know if it's an improvment planned in Dynatrace ?

we add a lot of information in Tags make sense to exploit it in Dashboard
