    The doman of the natural log is

    The exponential function is always non negative so this gives

    2+e^{\tan(x)} > 2


    The domain of the natural logarithm is positive real numbers.

    so the domain must be all real numbers.

    \frac{dy}{dx}=\frac{1}{2+e^{\tan(x)}}\frac{d}{dx }\left( 2+e^{\tan(x) }\right)

    Can you finish from here?
    Thanks from nubshat

    Don't forget that you still must exclude the "bad points" of \tan(x)
