Is it possible to run a CronJob that would run weekly with a specific time period to extract data from DT using Environment API?

Specifically, environment api GET /problem/feed


Ultimately, the goal is to automate this extraction weekly other tools are, suggestions, ideas are also welcomed.

Yes, you can. In fact for those clients that have their own class of ITSM that don't expose some kind of endpoint to send a webhook, we end up using scripted calls to the problems feed via tasks / cron

We use cron for all sorts of automation with Dynatrace API...

Any specific examples that you can share? Thanks!


Some examples that come to mind:

  • Producing reports is the main reason I use cron&Dynatrace API.
  • Getting data from other systems and injecting into Dynatrace.
  • Storing data for future reference & compliance reasons.
  • Activating&Deactivating OneAgents.
