We have had some use cases where users want to define other colors in their charts. As many of you might be aware, Dynatrace provides 5 colors with 3 different shades. that's great but sometimes the line charts tend to blur together with colors. So how do we expand our color selection?
The answer lies with the color selector:
You have the ability to select the color VIA HEX Codes. Check out this link to get the color code of your choice! https://htmlcolorcodes.com/
Lets say I want a one of those hosts to be defined by a bright red. I select the color via the HTML color code and I copied the HEX Code. Jump back to Dynatrace and paste that code into the field and press enter!
As you can see I have gone ahead and set Red, Green, Black, Pink, Yellow and Blue!
Give it a try! the possibilities are endless!!!!
Keep in mind, you can also use this to help convey the status of items in your metrics. A perfect example of this is with Kubernetes Pods. You can create a custom chart that shows the Phases of the Pods. Green = Running, Yellow = Pending, Red= Failed. So right from a glace, staff are fully aware of the Pods status as well as the count of those pods in each status.
The possibilities are endless, so give it a shot, try it out, and have fun doing it!

Well done! You know, I can't tell you how many times I have gone to use a pure red and it's not there and honestly, I never even thought about the fact that you can use the HEX box until you pointed it out with this. Good stuff! I do use emojis often.
I have not heard of this yet. Currently in the Data explorer, you can only select color scheme sets. The has been talk about a honeycomb tile for the charting of custom metrics but no official ETA on that.
Custom Color Schema's are coming in Q1 2022
