To match it to the same service as before, you need to compare the differences and use the service detection rule. It also requires restart of the monitored process.
It really depends on what changed in your services. have a look at the metadata of the service now and before the change:

The Dynatrace idea is to have the same services across your application lifecycle.
With calculated metrics you can have two options:
