In the NAM 2018 release notes, under deprecated features it says:
"Synthetic monitoring integration. The Dynatrace platform is now the
primary interface for all Dynatrace customers, including users of the
classic products. As Synthetic Classic customers upgrade to Dynatrace
Synthetic, Dynatrace NAM 2018 Server will continue to acquire and
process Synthetic Classic data; however, alerting on Synthetic Classic
data will no longer be supported."
So if I'm reading this correctly, not the whole integration is deprecated if the data is still acquired (and displayed?) by NAM - only alerting on that data would not be supported anymore.
On the other hand, looking at this doc:
...It says the Backbone Reports section only applies to CAS 2017 and not NAM 2018. So how is it?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The reports are available only when you upgrade because they are already in the system. As they don't come with NAM 2018 you will not see them in the clean install. We tried to keep some of the links to those Synthetic reports still in the reports that come with NAM 2018. They will however be removed in NAM 2019, i.e., any reports that come with NAM 2019 will have no references to Synthetic Classic or AppMon/UEM reports, as those reports (even after upgrade) will no longer work since NAM 2019 will no longer process data from neither Synthetic Classic nor from AppMon/UEM.
