Licensing Data in Managed 1.206

AntonioSousa

In Managed version 1.206, which rollout started yesterday, there is a new functionality for obtaining Licensing Data, as can be seen in the URLs below. Has anyone checked it out?

Most importantly, when will this feature be available for SaaS environments?

For SaaS it'll be part of the new portal we are working on. Hopefully around Q2 next year.

For Managed:

- I'll try to publish some open-source tooling to help processing that payload or simplify REST API. If someone builds such before - let me know!

- There will be a hot day training at Dynatrace Perform co-lead by me that we will play with that and automate this

- I hope to have a REST API for a single hour, with a single JSON to process also available


Any feedback appreciated!

Was this also working in 204? I've tried to use it with 204 but I was not successful. API endpoint were there, I just always got a zero-sized file. I'm now waiting for 206 to arrive to test it. I hope it will help with tracking license usage.

There was an issue with the signature. Fixed in 1.204.115 (see release notes). Works in 1.206 as well.

@Radoslaw S., did you manage to publish your tooling?

I've just been trying to produce a host unit consumption for hosts (including host name) over time based on the license export from CMC. Unfortunately it seems this is not doable as I could not figure out how to get hostname or entity name for the HostUsage entries.

  • hostName is not used
  • osiId does not seem to work either (tried to convert that to HEX and use it as the HOST-XXXX entity identifier, but I could not find a match)


Did I miss something?

@Július L. I'll share the code just after Perform. We'll use ActiveGate Extension to process the payload and put metrics back to Dynatrace - we'll practice this on a Hands-On Training session.

@Radoslaw S. Wondering if the code might be sharable now that Perform is over? I'm looking for a solution to generate the monthly license reports out of my managed instance.

it was shared with attendees of Hands-on trainings. Let me clarify internally first, before we open this to all.
