Dynatrace IntelliJ Idea Integration Plugin Build Status

The Dynatrace IntelliJ Idea Integration Plugin enables you to:

  • launch applications with an injected Dynatrace Agent directly from IntelliJ
  • retrieve & display the key architectural metrics (such as number of SQL queries, external API calls, exceptions and log messages) from your tests
  • perform lookups of source code files and methods from applications under diagnosis in Dynatrace AppMon

Special thanks to Christian Grimm who contributed to the first version of this plugin.

The test results are also visible in the Dynatrace Client for further drill-down to the PurePath level.

Source Code Look-up

The Dynatrace Client enables you to analyze PurePaths down to the individual methods that have been instrumented in the context of the captured transaction. When you identify a problematic method either in the PurePath view or in the Methods view of the Dynatrace Client, you can use the Source Code Lookup to jump to the source code line if you have the IntelliJ Idea project open.
