Dynatrace admins usually create screenshots to document their Dynatrace configuration, but this manual process is time-consuming and not robust enough against permanent changes in such environments.
Think about what will happen when you need to migrate all Dynatrace configurations from the Managed environment to a SaaS environment...
Performetriks just lunched a new version of Composer to manage the entire Dynatrace environment configuration, right now you can not only download all configuration but also upload it!!! Isn't that awesome????
You can relax and enjoy your day while Composer will do the rest...
But be careful because your Boss can notice that you have to much free time :)
What are the Use Cases of Composer?
# Backup Dynatrace configuration
No matter how many Dynatrace environments you have, Composer allows you to create backups of all your configuration items. You can make such a backup ad-hoc or entirely automated from a CI/CD pipeline.
# Upload Dynatrace configuration
Now you can upload all downloaded configuration back to Dynatrace no matter how many Dynatrace environments you have, you can use this new future to migrate your configuration to different Dynatrace environments.
# Checkin to software configuration management systems
Composer allows you to manage monitoring configurations as code, check it into repositories, and ensure that there is always an excellent track record of all monitoring settings.
# Find changes
If several admins take care of your Dynatrace environments, they need to make sure that everyone is on the same page regarding the adjusted settings. Composer simplifies their job because they always have a backup available, allowing them to detect the most recent changes.
