I've been updating Postman collections for myself for a while to make it easier to work with the Dynatrace API across multiple clusters, tenants, and environments.
I have put the files on github now, maybe someone will find it useful.
Setup is very quick, then you can just select the request and environment against which to execute it.
Here is a short guide:
Postman is available for free from postman.com.
Import (file -> import) the collection .json files for the APIs you want:
A separate collection for each, including all requests of that API, will be created:
For each of your Dynatrace environments/tenants you want to use, add a postman environment via manage environments -> add:
The environment needs two variables (names are case sensitive!):
Now you can open any request and easily execute it against different Dynatrace environments by selecting the environment on the top right:
This seems very interesting! Going to check it out when I have a little time.
You can get from from the API Explorer.
The collections are saved as .json files in the repository.
You can either copy them from the specs folder or just download the whole bundle from the releases page.
With one of the recent Postman version the UI changed a bit. The environments can now be found in the left side menue:
It was very much helpful and this acts as a utility to have. It saves a lot of time while working with customers.
Thanks for sharing.
