Hi AK,

 

Web request services serve the web applications that you deploy either via a web server (for example, Apache, IIS, or NGINX) or within web containers (for example, Java, .NET, Node.js, or PHP). Dynatrace considers three discrete concepts when identifying and naming web services: Web server name, Context root, and Web application ID. https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/shortlink/service-detection#anchor_web-request-service

 

Web services are defined by Web Services Description Language (WSDL), which is part of your deployment. WSDL defines services, how services are called, and service names. Dynatrace picks up service names along with targetNamespace values and combines these values to uniquely identify each service. https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/shortlink/service-detection#web-services
