Looking to upgrade from Dynatrace Managed to SaaS? See how

Settings that cannot be migrated with “Dynatrace-Config-Manager”


I understand that the released “Dynatrace-Config-Manager” is a very powerful migration tool. However, I imagine that there are settings that cannot be migrated with this tool. I'm looking for information about settings that cannot be migrated with this tool.

Hi @Shirai,

It will support all settings supported by the Terraform Provider:

- Except for Account level settings and Access tokens


Some settings are not supported by APIs, these settings will not be supported by any tool.
There is no official list, as it keeps changing

Here are ones that I know of:

  • Web Request Naming rules for Services (Any service > Settings > Request naming rules)
  • Mobile/Custom application naming rules (Any mobile/custom application > Settings > Naming rules)
  • Mobile/Custom/Web apps Session and user action properties (Any mobile/custom application > Settings > Session and user action properties)
  • Global settings --> server-side service monitoring --> Deep monitoring
    • has an API endpoint, but it does not cover everything on that page

Honestly, if you are looking to upgrade from Managed to SaaS, I would partner directly with Dynatrace. Open a support ticket with the ask and the should be able to assist you in exporting the current settings/posture of your managed instance and then import it into your newly created SaaS instance.

Hi @Shirai 

Here you can find settings that require manual migration:


Anyway, I think that all elements that haven´t an entity must be migrated manually.

I mean:

This element has entity:




so it can migrate automatically.

But this one doesn´t:


In fact, any element of Capturing section hasn´t entity associated ("..." are missing).

Dones anyone if I am right?

Hi Elena,

Be careful with that assumption, it is often right, but not always.

User Tags, for your example, are fully supported, see the link to the API definition


The ellipsis (or triple-dot) button is shown for Settings 2.0 API.

Applications, like in your example, are supported by API v1

Some Configs also use API v2

Thank you

Hi @dcryans ,

Thanks for your clarification.

I'll take it into account.

Thanks for your help,
