Dynatrace Operator Helm Chart

The Dynatrace Operator supports rollout and lifecycle of various Dynatrace components in Kubernetes and OpenShift.

As of launch, the Dynatrace Operator can be used to deploy a containerized ActiveGate for Kubernetes API monitoring. New capabilities will be added to the Dynatrace Operator over time including metric routing, and API monitoring for AWS, Azure, GCP, and vSphere.

This Helm Chart requires Helm 3.


Depending on the version of the Dynatrace Operator, it supports the following platforms:

Dynatrace Operator Helm Chart version Kubernetes OpenShift Container Platform
v0.1.0 1.18+ 3.11.188+, 4.4+

Quick Start

The Dynatrace Operator acts on its separate namespace dynatrace. It holds the operator deployment and all dependent objects like permissions, custom resources and corresponding StatefulSets. To install the Dynatrace Operator via Helm run the following command:

Adding Dynatrace Helm repository

$ helm repo add dynatrace

Prepare tokens

Generate an API and a PaaS token in your Dynatrace environment.

To install the Dynatrace Operator replace the APIUrl, the API token and the PaaS token in command and execute it


$ kubectl create namespace dynatrace
$ helm install dynatrace-operator dynatrace/dynatrace-operator -n dynatrace --set apiUrl="",apiToken="DYNATRACE_API_TOKEN",paasToken="PLATFORM_AS_A_SERVICE_TOKEN"


$ oc adm new-project --node-selector="" dynatrace
$ helm install dynatrace-operator dynatrace/dynatrace-operator -n dynatrace --set platform="openshift",apiUrl="",apiToken="DYNATRACE_API_TOKEN",paasToken="PLATFORM_AS_A_SERVICE_TOKEN"

This will automatically install the Dynatrace Operator and create a containerized ActiveGate.

Update procedure

To update simply update your helm repositories and check the latest version

$ helm repo update

You can then check for the latest version by searching your Helm repositories for the Dynatrace Operator

$ helm search repo dynatrace-operator

To then update to the latest version run this command and do not forget to add the reuse-values flag to keep your configuration

$ helm upgrade dynatrace-operator dynatrace/dynatrace-operator -n dynatrace --reuse-values
