Hi Folks, I work in a multi-tenant multi-host environment where we would logically divide environment instances by Unix users. Is there any way I can set Management Zones in Dynatrace Managed by the Unix uid associated with a process?
You can always pass environment variable with property or tag and use it as a rule for management zone. In such way simple rule will be static, configuration will be done on host level.
I rather suggest custom property, to keep environment clean but it always depends of your needs.
Thanks for your suggestion Sebastian, that's not going to work for me. I need to segregate at a lower level than host. If I have 20 instances of application X running on Host 1 I need to be able to attribute each of those application instances to a different environment instance. They all run on different unix users and I am able to map unix account to environment elsewhere so I'd like to make the same distinction in DT.
But you are able to add enviornment variable separate for each process so what's the problem.
