Group Oracle database processes by SID?

There is a new option in the "Built-in detection Rules" that I have not seen referenced:




The "i" icon references additionally: Enable to group and separately analyze the processes of each Oracle DB. Each process group receives a unique name based on the Oracle DB SID.


The Release notes for 1.231 don't reference anything related to Oracle.


Unfortunately I cannot test this option in my environments, without knowing what it does. Has someone done it, or know what it does?


Might it be a workaround for the database merging issue related to the following Product Idea?

Thank you so much for bringing to my attention.  I'm going to update some of our OneAgents, try to get more details from Dynatrace, then would be willing to try it assuming it could be undone.


One thing we noticed in DT is if you do anything that changes a Process Group you lose all configurations for the process.  It sort of makes sense because it creates a new Process Group ID but still, we lose lots of configurations that are hard to replicate.


Will let you know what more i find out.
