We deployed Dynatrace OneAgent on several Openshift nodes on which are deployed all the applications environments (dev, preprod, prod). As the OpenShift hosts are installed in our Production tenant, Dynatrace detects problems on all the applications environments and we receive alerts for applications that are not production.
Is there a simple way to disabled problem detection on non-prod environments? I created management zones to distinguish the various environments but it does not help for this kind of issue.

Management Zones and Tags are the right way to go in combination with alerting profiles.
You can configure your alerting profiles so you are only notifited about, and see the problem indicator in the UI for, problems from production systems.

Also note that if all of your process groups are being detected together (i.e. big groups that contain the same application in dev, QA, prod etc...) you may need to look at splitting those up so that the process groups are split by by dev, QA, prod. Otherwise even with management zones you may have issues with troubles in pre-prod environments creating problems tagged as prod. Hostgroups are usually helpful in doing that.
