Dynatrace Dynatrace

Creating a Dynatrace connection

To create the connection you need:

  • An API address
  • An access token

Obtaining the credentials

Generating an access token

Follow the Dynatrace documentation on how to generate a personal or environment access token.


In order to run all actions on Blink, the following scopes are required:

  • events.ingest
  • problems.write
  • metrics.ingest

If the token has a subset of these scopes, it can only be used for the relevant actions.

Creating your connection

  1. In the Blink platform, navigate to the Connections page > Add connection. A New Connection dialog box opens displaying icons of external service providers available.
  2. Select the Dynatrace icon. A dialog box with name of the connection and connection methods appear.
  3. (Optional) Edit the name of the connection. At a later stage you cannot edit the name.
  4. Select Access Token as the method to create the connection.
  5. Fill in the parameters:
    • The API address of your Dynatrace instance.
    • The access token with proper scopes.
  6. (Optional) Click Test Connection to test it. The scope is required for the test connection.
  7. Click Create connection. The new connection appears on the Connections page.
