Is feasible to configure chrome browser used on Synthetic monitoring ?

Hello all

I would like to know if is feasible to configure chrome browser used on Synthetic monitoring ?

For instance in order to install chrome extensions.

Considering also the case where we can use Syntetic monitoring using internal Active Gates on a Managed installation ?

Many Thanks in advance

Hi Jose, as Antonio stated this is currently not officially supported. Jose L. what's the use case?

I'm pretty sure you cannot do it for the public agents.

If you run your private agents,

https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/how-to-use-dynatrace/synthetic-monitoring/private-synthetic-locations/system-and-hardware-requirements-for-private-synthetic/

you might be able to "hack" something, although that is certainly not recommended.

I have experience only with the Linux private agent. In this case, you have to install chromium by yourself, which might help in tweaking it, although I must stress that you should probably consult with Dynatrace first.

BTW, private agents can be used in SaaS and Managed installations. I use them in a SaaS environment.
