Using Dynatrace API to get Multidimensional Analysis


Using the Dynatrace API, I am able to fetch the response time, but what I want is a detailed multidimensional analysis response time for each of the dimensions as it can be seen from the Multidimensional Analysis sections under the Transactions and Services. Is there an API to get the same level of detailed information?

Thats a very good question but I dont believe that you can get this data from the API at this point. I would recommend putting in a RFE.


Seems that the RFE was not put in place, and since I have the same need, I have put one in at:

Access to MDA through API.

In order for something like that to be accessible through the API it needs to be a metric, you should be able to create a 'calculated service metric' with the required splitting and filtering to get the output you need. This feature should already be in your version but this blog post from the preview explains how to use them:

Note that you can use these through the API and set alerts up on them - the 'limitations' described on that post were old.

I get what you are saying and understand that you can create Multidimensional analysis from the UI. I need to achieve the same from the Dynatrace API, is that possible, if so can you point me to a blog or a tutorial for that.

Yes, that is what I am posting about - when you create a calculated service metric you can export it through the API.

We are unable to create a calculated service metric for 90% aggregation value. Any solution for that?

Hey @JamesKitson! Do you remember if there're some further tips to help @pnvsrhc or anyone else facing this kind of issue?
