In the past, I have used the Generic Execution Plugin on AppMon to run scripts after certain incidents occur. I am currently working with a Dynatrace SaaS customer who has several use cases in which SSH into a Linux machine would be extremely valuable. Is there any equivalent to the AppMon GEP in Dynatrace yet? If not, is it on the roadmap?
Solved! Go to Solution.
As @Patrick H. said you can create web service which will be triggered with web hook integration. Than you can create alerting profile which will send payloads only for some kind of problems or if for example they are active to long. After trigger from DT you can do anything you need.
Sorry, I don't have an example I could share.
The webhook itself is only for pushing problem data, you are correct there. You would have to write an web services that accepts the web hook and acts on it, e.g. parses the information to check which host is affected by the problem and then connect via SSH and kick off a restart of the process.
You could also have a look at the ansible tower integration, with which you would be able to achive the same withansible playbooks.
