1 - Dynatrace Connection Setup

Updated 2 months ago by Michael Cretzman

The first step in using Dynatrace with Harness is to set up an Dynatrace Verification Provider in Harness.

A Harness Verification Provider is a connection to monitoring tools such as Dynatrace. Once Harness is connected, you can use Deployment Verification with your Dynatrace data and analysis.

Generate Dynatrace Access Token

Dynatrace requires token-based authentication for accessing the Dynatrace API. For more information, see Access tokens from Dynatrace.

To generate a Dynatrace access token, do the following:

  1. Log into your Dynatrace environment.
  2. In the navigation menu, click Settings, and then click Integration.
  3. Select Dynatrace API. The Dynatrace API page appears.
  4. Enter a token name in the text field. The default Dynatrace API token switches are sufficient for Harness.
  5. Click Generate. The token appears in the token list.
  6. Click Edit. The token details appear.
  7. Click Copy. You will use this token when connecting Harness to Dynatrace, described below.

  1. In Harness, click Setup.
  2. Click Connectors.
  3. Click Verification Providers.
