Automation for Dynatrace Managed

Frequent Guest

I've been looking into what automation capability is available for Dynatrace Managed Customers.

Cloud Automation doesn't strictly specify whether it's supported by Managed or not and looks to require a Dynatrace hosted instance - Cloud Automation requirements | Dynatrace Docs

Additionally, since AutomationEngine/Workflows is only a Saas product, are there any direct webhook/integration automation capabilities available for on-prem Dynatrace Managed solutions?

@Jarrod_Brammer Cloud Automation, AutomationEngine, and Workflows are available only in the SaaS deployment model. There are no plans currently to make them available on-premises with Dynatrace Managed. The reason is that they rely on Grail which is available only in Dynatrace and was architected that way, which is unsuitable for on-premises deployments.

What you can use is alternatively is:

  •  - installed on your premises or private cloud, easy to integrate with Dynatrace, base for Cloud Automation available in Dynatrace
  • - Use Dynatrace webhooks to trigger automation from problems - for example, a remediation playbook
  • Use REST APIs and embed them into your own CI/CD, or automation workflows
