Is it possible to exclude certain deployment events or changes to files for a specific process or host?
Every time there is data sent to a POS device, Dynatrace detects the change to the file as a deployment, but the client feels that it is adding unnecessary 'noise' to the monitoring and makes it more difficult for them to filter out actual code deployment changes. I couldn't find anything in the documentation but perhaps I'm not looking in the right place? 🙂
See the example below of these data sending events, which are detected as deployment changes.
Hey Andre, there isn't a way to reduce information sent to this. We can add a few things, but reducing the info isn't something that can be done. Hopefully you can ignore the extra noise, as Dynatrace shows crashes, restarts, and other events separately. But, for these info events, you cannot exclude them.
We can add context such as deployment steps from Jenkins, ServiceNow, Ansible, and the like. See the Jenkins information as an example. This is all done via the API.
