  1. I am getting "The bundle *.jar is invalid" can anyone help?

     

  2. Hi Jereme mahaffey which version of Dynatrace are you running?

    I have only compiled it for version 6.3.

    But I have been able to compile for verision 6.2.x also.

     

    1. I will try the new build for 6.2.x, but I have a test 6.3 that I was getting the issue on.

      Thank you for your responce

      1. Let me know how it goes!

  3. That 6.2.5 build isn't working for me, does it work for anyone else? If I open it up in Eclipse it throws errors at me, like "public class SlackChat implements ActionV2" where ActionV2 doesn't exist. Action does, but changing that doesn't seem to help. 

    I also have to go through a proxy to hit Slack, should this respect the system proxy or does it need the proxy info added in the plugin?

     

    Thanks,

    1. Hi, I unfortunately do not have a 6.2 version to test it on any more. But I have it running on a 6.3 version. It could be that you should go to the github and try to build the verision on your own.

      What kind of proxy settings affects Dynatrace plugins I am unsure of. Whether those be proxy settings from Dynatrace, or from windows / linux OS.

      You can send me a mail if you want to.

  5. Is there a good link for the 6.3 version? When I download https://github.com/dynaTrace/Dynatrace-Slack-Integration-Plugin/releases/download/v0.9.0/com.Slack.Chat_0.9.0.jar and try to install it I get an error saying the jar is invalid. 

    I've just updated to 6.3 to give this a try.

     

    Thanks,

  6. I am having same issue as other users have reported. Getting an error saying JAR is invalid. Is there a working version? 

  7. Hi Abisheak, I am sorry to hear that. Could you maybe send me an Email and I can check if i can solve with you? Ingo Hackl maybe you can help to build it for different versions as that has been an issue before? I only run AppMon 6.3 at the moment.

  8. I am also getting the invalid jar message. AppMon 6.3.3.

  9. Now the download for com.Slack.Chat_0.9.0.jar works and I installed this version successfully on Dynatrace 6.2.5 and Dynatrace 6.3.

  10. Does this plugin work for AppMon 6.5.x?

    1. Yes the plugin works with 6.5.x.

      We have been using it.
