We have a Dynatrace SaaS system that is detecting as the default application, a web server on a host that we want to instrument but not to detect the web application. I cant see any way to do this in the settings as there appears to no control over what is automatically detected from an application perspective. Please correct me if I am wrong on this as the only way I can see to do this is to remove the OneAgent from the host that the webserver is running on?
- Define a new application and set up rules to match requests to the application. Then turn off "Real User Monitoring" for that application.
Another option, depending on what you want to do, is to turn off "My web application". This is the default application created by Dynatrace to capture all RUM data that doesn't fall under any of the rules set for the other applications. To do this, go to "My web application", open the menu for it on the top right, choose "Edit", then uncheck "Real user monitoring". If you go this route, you'll essentially be making it so that only URLs/domains which you explicitly define in the application detection rules will have RUM injected.
