Configure pre-deployment

This article describes the prerequisites that must be completed in your Azure subscription or Microsoft Entra ID before you create your first Dynatrace resource in Azure.

Access control

To set up Dynatrace for Azure, you must have Owner or Contributor access on the Azure subscription. First, confirm that you have the appropriate access before starting the setup.

Add enterprise application

To use the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) based single sign-on (SSO) feature within the Dynatrace resource, you must set up an enterprise application. To add an enterprise application, you need one of these roles: Global administrator, Cloud Application Administrator, or Application Administrator.

  1. Go to Azure portal. Select Microsoft Entra ID, then Enterprise App and then New Application.

  2. Under Add from the gallery, type in Dynatrace. Select the search result then select Create.
