Status: Set the status as active.

Test Setup
To instruct Catchpoint which tests should link to Dynatrace AppMon, the tests require specific HTTP request headers. This can be done at the Product, Folder, or Test level.


We need to add information to the HTTP header. An example of a header could look like:
x-dynaTrace: VU=1;PC=.1;ID=4;NA=SearchPage

Where “VU”,”PC”,”ID” and “NA” are all key with values.

Accessing Dynatrace AppMon via Catchpoint
Once a test with necessary headers has run, the test results will include a link for Dynatrace AppMon. The link will be present in the Waterfall diagram as well as in the Error Tooltip.
After clicking on the link, you will be directed to the corresponding Dynatrace AppMon dashboard.
