How do I enable availability web checks?

This topic applies to Dynatrace Managed installations only.

To enable availability web checks, your Dynatrace Managed deployment must be able to receive web check monitoring data from Dynatrace Server. For this to happen you must install a Dynatrace Security Gateway that can be publicly accessed from the Internet. The Security Gateway listens on port 9999.

Note
Don’t install a Security gateway on the same host where a Dynatrace cluster node is installed.

To install a Security Gateway:

  1. Go to the Dynatrace Managed Clusters page.
  2. Click Download Security Gateway installer.
  3. Follow the instructions included in the installer. Be sure to install the Security Gateway in a network segment that is accessible from the Internet.
  4. Go to Settings > Public endpoints and type in the URL where your new Security Gateway can be reached. The URL must be publicly accessible and able to accept both HTTP and HTTPS requests. Note: Agentless real user monitoring and mobile-app monitoring use this same endpoint to transmit monitoring data to Dynatrace.

Once Dynatrace has validated that your Security Gateway can be reached from the Dynatrace cloud, you will be able to schedule web checks from all environments.
