Not able to convert JMX 1.0 to 2.0 - Getting Errors


I am trying to enabled Dynatrace monitoring for Red Had JBoss DataGrid Infinispan.

I used the Dynatrace 1.0 JMX Wizard to find the Infinispan process and add the metrics into a custom extension for 1.0.

With the resulting zip file, I extracted the JSON.  Then I tried to use the VSCode plugin for Dynatrace Extensions 2.0 to translate this 1.0 JSON to the 2.0 version.

However I get errors.

The 1.0 JSON contains items such as:


- mode: NORMAL

- metrics > metricSelectorSort

- metrics > metricSelectorDetailed


What the the Ext 2.0 equivalents for these? 

Since these are terms coming from a Dynatrace 1.0 JSON, should these not automatically be covered by the VSCode plugin for conversion to 2.0?

Please help as we need to resolve this in a matter of days.

Hi @MichaelT_Lee 

The migration of Extension 1.0 to Extension 2.0 is not automatic.

Unmatched scalability and security of Dynatrace extensions


Yes, it is possible to use Visual Studio Code to perform the conversion but following some specific steps.

That Dynatrace Developer link has a lot of information about it.

I hope its helpful 💪
