Dynatrace’s USQL (User Session Query Language) Tutorial

Dynatrace USQL is a powerful query language that allows you to analyze your Dynatrace data in depth. It is a SQL-like language that can be used to query data from all of the different Dynatrace tables, including Real User Monitoring (RUM) data, synthetic monitoring data, and infrastructure monitoring data.

Here are some basic tutorials for Dynatrace USQL:

Getting started

To get started with USQL, you will need to create a USQL script. You can do this in the Dynatrace UI or in a text editor.

To create a USQL script in the Dynatrace UI:

  1. Go to Settings > Monitoring > USQL > Create new script.
  2. Enter a name for your script and click Create.
  3. Paste your USQL code into the script editor.
  4. Click Run to execute your script.

To create a USQL script in a text editor:

  1. Create a new text file and save it with a .usql extension.
  2. Paste your USQL code into the text file.
  3. Save the text file.

Once you have created your USQL script, you can run it using the Dynatrace UI or the Dynatrace CLI.
