Business Transaction: Increase Max Splittings by Frequent Transactions

Dynatrace Pro
Dynatrace Pro

In the Splittings Options for a Business Transaction, there is an option of "Limit to most frequent transactions" with a maximum number of splittings configurable up to 100.

Screenshot of the menu:

Is there a way to edit the business transaction or an XML file somewhere so that I can increase this number to 200 or 500?

I dont think there is an option to overwrite that max value

Under the System Profile's XML, I found the following line of code when referring to the Business Transaction:

 <transaction maxsplittings="100" subscriptiontype="userdefined" servicecontext="END_USER" description="Calculates the load and resource timings for the combined.css, Adobe Demdex, and Tealium TIQCDN resources, allowing for easy drilldown into pages that include it." errordetectionsupport="true" exportincludeperfdata="false" enabled="true" transactiontype="performance" aggregategroups="true" mode="topx" errortransactiontype="unknown" minpercentage="5.0" exportincludesessionref="false" id="Resource Timings for Top 50 Pages - Copy" export="false" unrestrictedmaxsplittings="5000">

The first "maxsplittings" is set to 100, which is the same value that I adjusted it to. If I were to adjust this setting to be something like 250, would this produce the result I want?

I was just trying to find the description to this in my notes but couldnt find it. You can try changing that to a higher number. I assume it will work. What I am not sure of is when you edit the BT again in the client on whether it then reverts it to 100 which is the maximum we want by default. But please give it a try and keep us posted. If it works we will make sure to add this to the doc as I couldnt find it there
