Custom plugin - dynamically read keys?

scott_brenner

Is it possible for a custom Dynatrace plugin to dynamically read keys from the JSON document that an endpoint serves?

Using this as an example -

{"counter": 147, "random": 907}

Say a new key/value pair is added to the endpoint - can the plugin detect this, or does every key have to be hardcoded in the plugin?

{"counter": 147, "random": 907, "new": 4}

Are you asking if the set of metrics returned by a Dynatrace custom plugin can be dynamic? That's unfortunately not possible at the moment. Set of returned metrics has to be defined in plugin descriptor.
