I have an external API that will return a JSON object (Containing metric details as key value pair).
Is there a way to poll this API from Dynatrace continuously (probably once every 10 minutes) and record the metrics in Dynatrace?
I am aware of the ingest APIs, but wanted to know if Dynatrace can pull the data instead of me writing a code for ingesting into Dynatrace.
This is an external Box, so no way for us to install One Agent or any other software there.
We are using Dynatrace Managed setup internally.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Dynatrace's way of "pulling" data in are Active Gate plugins that interact with the 3rd party device's API to get data and then report them to Dynatrace. With Active Gate plugins you have a lot of flexibility when it comes to report 3rd party metrics, events or even problems.
Best get started here.
