Hi Team, we are planning to integrate dynatrace with Grafana. Is it possible to integrate dynatrace with Grafana opensource version. or else we should have grafana enterprise version. Please let me know.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You should be able to do so.
Grafana should have DT as a Source of information. If you guys don't want to use the Grafana Plugin, would need to create your own or search in GitHub if anyone did it. (Did a fast search and found this https://github.com/piotr1212/grafana-dynatrace-datasource)
Haven't test it.
The open-source plugin's only weakness is that it uses the v1 apis. I have been at this juncture myself. Grafana Enterprise wasn't an option - so decided to see how easy it was to write your own.
I built a plugin using the v2 API but not really any of its new transform features. So it did what a plugin using the v1 APi could do - but was much easier to implement. It took 2 days to prototype and about 2 weeks of tweaking. I was unsatisfied with a few aspects of it, and ultimately decided to just move on to other things.
I would say that writing your own would require strong development skills - especially problem solving and debugging - unless you are already familiar with Grafana's internal architecture.
