Timeseries API for RUM - specific User Actions


Hi, I would like to replace SOASTA with Dynatrace RUM.

One of the most important capabilities I need to clarify is the export of Timeseries API data for specific user actions.

Can this data be exported? For example, median and 90th percentile for the performance of all User actions for 'Login.aspx'

Is this possible?

Dear @Nick R.,

Dynatrace API offers a specific timeseries REST endpoint for most of the monitored components, such as applications, services, hosts. There are specific kind of metrics such as response time for application or for application user actions. In order to export the long term metrics for a user action, you have to subscribe the user action within the Dynatrace UI. Right now we are exporting min, max, sum, avg but not the percentiles. Adding the percentiles would not be much of an effort as they are part of our long term persistence metrics.



Thanks @Wolfgang B. - percentiles would be a huge benefit here. I am not sure whether it would be possible but are we able to calculate and extract the 80th percentile? This is based on a global agreement at the executive level

The site has many international regions and an annual visitor number >1bn.



Just for clarification: You can only use the REST Api for key user actions (this was mean by: subscribe the user action).


I am using the API to grab RUM metrics and I ran into the same limitation that @Nick R. did. I need the ability to get these stats as percentiles for reporting. Is this on the horizon?

Thats possible since a long time, see below screenshot:

Thanks @Wolfgang B. I was looking at the User Sessions endpoints, not the Time Series endpoints. This is exactly what I'm looking for.
