I'm aware that ServiceTrace is the recommended synthetic solution for integrating fat/rich client monitors with Dynatrace. But in case there are only a few less critical use cases and it would be desireable to avoid license costs both towards ServiceTrace and Dynatrace (custom metrics)... I was thinking, would it maybe work if the ESM Agents posted their test results directly to the EXT Synthetic API?
In this case, since we're not interested in using CAS for viewing the data, we could basically have an installation with one Agent Manager used for scheduling the agents, and an X amount of ESM Agents. All the data would then be visible at Dynatrace (Managed). Comments? Would this type of setup even work, i.e. Agent Manager and Agents but no CAS?

Thanks for this post, Kalle. You can certainly run ESM Agent Manager and Agents with no CAS. You will just need another reporting and alerting method. But, as you know, support for ESM is about to end December 31, 2019. It may be best for you to open a support ticket for your questions.
