Merging services with different ports?

Hi,

In general it seems that Dynatrace likes to create a service "copy" per port that is used.

In my case I have defined a custom device for Datapower.
Dynatrace created 5 different services, for each of the ports that are used to connect to the DP device.
I don't need that split...

How do i get them to be united into just one service?
Service Merging will not list those services. Renaming the services does not unite them either.

Any ideas?

Daniel

Services on custom devices are detected from traffic monitored by OneAgent. You should be able to achieve that using service detection rules (they are in fact opaque services).
You just need to override to port value in your rule for those services.

See API docs here - service detection rules are configurable only using API at the moment:
https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/dynatrace-api/configuration-api/service-api/detection-rules/

I've done this already for different custom devices and it works well.

In case someone else needs it:


using this parameter eliminates the port in the service id:

"port": {

"doNotUseForServiceId": "true"

}
