Add remote environment to management zone

Jurgen_Roels1

Hi,


I've created a dashboard with some tiles which are containing data from a remote environment.

On the other hand I will be using management zones to give the appropriate user rights.


The problem is that my dashboard is not showing the data from the remote environment when I filter on a management zone. Is there a possibility to add the remote environment to the management zone?


Thanks in advance!

Kind regards,

Jurgen

Are you able to tag the remote environment entity? If so give it a tag such as "<APPNAME> - Remote Environment" and then add the rule to the Management Zone to include anything with the host tag "<AppName - Remote Environment"

outside of that i dont think there are rules to pick and choose the remote environment from the Management Zone rules level. Id recommend tossing in a RFE with some details about what kind of rules for remote environments you'd like: https://answers.dynatrace.com/content/idea/post.html?space=483

There are two ways to cope with this situation:

1) Use specific remote management zone per tile (as described in this recent blog post: https://www.dynatrace.com/news/blog/reporting-at-scale-leveraging-cross-environment-dashboards-gener... )

  • the upside of this is that it works out of the box
  • the downside is that is no longer dynamic if you change the management zone on the dashboatd

2) Keep management zones in sync over conneceted environments

Thanks Roman!

I've implemented the second option and this is working like expected 🙂
