Why Dynatrace API accept agregationType parameter instead of aggregationType parameter for value percentile ?


Hi, it's not really a question more to inform or investigate about the reason why.

About this great and helpful article of Wolfgang Beer : Custom percentiles for dashboard charts & Dynatrace API calls.

In the example API call fetches url the name parameter agregationType with only 1 g works for the value percentile. But for other Built-in metrics and aggregations, agregationType parameter with only 1 g don't works and will return the message :

"error": {
"code": 400,
"message": "The aggregation type is not allowed for the given timeseries id."

So be careful to always use aggregationType with 2 g because it always works 🙂

I hope this will help some of you to not loose time, as me 🙂
