Event ingest on OneAgent localhost interface answers "forbidden"


Hi dear community members,


I was very happy to see this feature coming with OA 1.269 (

It took a while for me to test it, so I ended up testing it on trial SaaS Dynatrace environment after enabling it on environment level (Settings >> Extension Execution Controller >> Enable local HTTP Metric, Logs and Events Ingest API).

However, it works just 50%:

- I can inject metrics

- I get forbidden then I try it for events


I use VSC for injection.

Working request:

content-type: text/plain; charset=utf-8

cpu.temperature,cpu=1 55



HTTP/1.1 202 Accepted Content-Type: application/json Server: EEC Connection: close Content-Length: 62

{ "error": null, "linesOk": 1, "linesInvalid": 0 }


Failing request:

content-type: application/json; charset=utf-8

{"eventType": "INFO", "title": "Test"}



HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden Content-Type: text/plain Server: EEC Connection: close Content-Length: 9 Forbidden


any idea? Has anybody manage to make it work? I was unable to find any documentation for this in DT docs...


Thanks in advance!

Hey @ingridat ,

the API is exactly the same as with Events v2 API. I believe you have the endpoint incorrect, it should be /v2/events/ingest 


Here is a more complex example using curl:

 curl http://localhost:14499/v2/events/ingest -XPOST -d '{ "eventType": "CUSTOM_INFO", "title": "Loadtest start", "timeout": 30, "entitySelector": "type(HOST),entityName.equals(myhost)", "properties": { "Tool": "MyLoadTool", "Load per minute": "100", "Load pattern": "production" } }' -H "Content-Type: application/json; charset=utf-8" -v
Note: Unnecessary use of -X or --request, POST is already inferred.
*   Trying
* Connected to localhost ( port 14499 (#0)
> POST /v2/events/ingest HTTP/1.1
> Host: localhost:14499
> User-Agent: curl/7.64.0
> Accept: */*
> Content-Type: application/json; charset=utf-8
> Content-Length: 226
* upload completely sent off: 226 out of 226 bytes
< HTTP/1.1 201 Created
< Content-Type: application/json
< Server: EEC
< Content-Length: 2
* Connection #0 to host localhost left intact

Thanks @Julius_Loman,

Now (with right endpoint) works like a charm 🙂

Stupid me... Thanks a lot!
