Steps to Create New Relic Forwarding

To forward your logs to Dynatrace, begin by logging into Apica's website.
  • Navigate to the Create tab and select the option for Forwarder.
  • Next, choose Dynatrace(HTTP event collector) from the available options; this will bring up a new form with fields such as API Key, Host, Tags, etc. Fill out the required data in these fields and click Create.
Create Forwarder:
Api_Key: <DYNATRACE-API-KEY>
Host: <DYNATRACE-ENDPOINT>
Tags: logflow
Type: _json
Name: Dynatrace
  • Next, head over to the Explore page and pick out a namespace you wish to forward your logs to Dynatrace.
  • Click on the three dots icon located next to the calendar and opt for Map Forwarder; this will open a new modal that allows you to choose the newly created Dynatrace forwarder schema (this can be identified via its Dynatrace icon).
  • Confirm your selection by clicking OK.
  • A successful mapping is indicated by a popup showing that namespace-application pairs are connected with respective forwarders; additionally, you'll notice an updated Namespace Forwarder status in effect.
  • Your logs are now being forwarded to Dynatrace.
To help make the steps easier to understand, below are the screenshots illustrating each of the instructions given above.
