We have instrumented few applications with dynatrace and get the purepaths and all details for those applications, but recently we have started using REST services in our applications. We want to rename the applications in dynatrace which we have already instrumented with dynatrace but haven't got any option for that. We want to mention "REST" word in the application name itself so that it will be easy to identify all those applications having REST calls.
Could anyone please help how can we rename the existing applications in dynatrace.
Only option we left with is to create a copy of those application but we don't want to do that as we do have more than 40 applications and creating copy would not be a good idea as it may have huge overhead on dynatrace server.
Appreciate your help.
Thanks & Regards
Thanks for your reply AK, but I don't want to edit the system profile, I want to rename the applications.
When you double click on System Profile -> Left side pane, Click on Applications (It will list down all the applications you have instrumented with Dynatrace) those I want to rename.
I guess the only option is to create a copy of those application to provide the meaningful name especially in the case of detect application automatically mode but I am wondering that might be you will lose all the baselines of auto/manual transactions.
After creating a new application with its rules, take the rules out of the old applications definition and set lowest priority. Rather than deleting the application, should you need to access its data still it will be there and no new traffic will be captured for it.
