Dynatrace is an application performance management software company with products for the information technology departments and digital business owners of medium and large businesses. The company’s services include performance management software for programs running on-premises and in the cloud. SIGNL4 takes the dashboard information and delivers critical alerts directly to the on-call team members’ smart phones and manages everything around your on-call teams.
How it Works
A two-way integration can be configured easily by using the Dynatrace app in SIGNL4. Alternatively, the SIGNL4 webhook establishes connection with Dynatrace to enable mobile notification and alerting capabilities for operations teams.

HOW TO INTEGRATE There are some alternative options to integrate SIGNL4 with Dynatrace.
Dynatrace App in SIGNL4
This is the easiest and most powerful (two-way) integration.
In your SIGNL4 portal go to Teams -> Apps and activate the Dynatrace app. Here you just need to enter the mentioned parameters and that’s it. Basically you need the URL of your Dynatrace instance and the API key. All parameters are described more in detail directly in the app settings (click the question mark).
When the setup is complete SIGNL4 will automatically pull new events from Dynatrace and create alerts accordingly.
The integration offers the following features:
Problems of your choice are polled from Dynatrace automatically
Option to exclude problems created during maintenance
Ability to annotate Dynatrace problems from the SIGNL4 mobile app (e.g. by on-call staff)
Ability to close Dynatrace problems from the SIGNL4 mobile app (e.g. by on-call staff)
When problems are closed in Dynatrace, the corresponding alerts in SIGNL4 are closed as well
Alternative: One-Way Webhook Integration
If you want a simple one-way integration for sending alerts from Dynatrace to SIGNL4 you can also use webhooks.
You can configure this in your Dynatrace portal under Settings -> Integration -> Problem notifications. Here you can add a new custom notification and enter the SIGNL4 webhook URL including your team secret as Webhook URL. The custom payload contains the JSON date including placeholders. You can leave the default or adapt it to your needs.
To determine when an alert should be sent, you may want to adjust the problem alerting profiles (Settings -> Alerting -> Problem alerting profiles).
ALERT OPTIMIZATION SIGNL4 can further increase the visibility of alerts through its Signals and Services section. Augmenting the color and icon of alerts will provide more relevant information at a glance without having to open the alert.
Change alert color and override title + text
Override text, colors and titles are triggered by keywords set within the mobile app.
