Not sure how it's done for OpenShift (I don't have any OpenShift nearby), but you actually can automatically tag services/process groups based on rules. You can use values of docker image name/image version/docker container name in your rules. It quite useful and straightforward, although I've encountered few glitches.
Would this fit your case?
Thx for your reply, I will give you feedback on this next week, I will have a talk with the application developer.
FYI you define tags in a container description, witch will be exposed to Dynatrace when running in Openshift environment,
If you want to use the DT_TAGS option in Docker has nayone had any success getting this to show up in Dynatrace? Where do you need to place the tag for It to be seen. I have tried a few options and it just breaks the container creation. Thanks Brian
What have you tried so far? That is an environment variable so here is what I found for setting those in docker containers:
I haven't personally played with this yet. It expect it would also pick any set up that way at the docker host level too - not sure what the interaction would be.
