Fetching request attribute data outside Dynatrace and feed to a third party tool

Hi There, 

To feed my curiosity, I got a question where I should address to our customer as well. They are setting up their SLA monitoring where they want to capture the size of the payload or the file they are transacting. We have created a request attribute to capture the file size but however we cannot extract the data from Dynatrace APIs. 

My question here is, is there a way where we can fetch data collected by request attributes outside Dynatrace and feed the same to 3rd party tool for SLA monitoring?

Hi @theharithsa ,
you need to create a metric for the request attribute. More precisely the calculated service metrics . By defining a metric based on the request attribute, you can then fetch the values using metrics api. 

This is the only method at the moment. There are also product ideas such as access to MDA through API which could solve your case in a different way if implemented.
