Hello all.

it is possible to create a service name rule using a request attribute placeholder? 

 

 

Thanks in advanced

Hi Jose

short answer: no

 

depending on the need you can define custom services, but it will depend on what you are looking for.

 

Unless from the process you create a service for each request changing this logic since the process is detected, I would think that it is feasible but not practical.

Hello Ruben.
My customer has defined alot of business applications under WAS (IBM websphere Applications Server). The problem is that Dynatrace does not detect that application name in any metadata with which to rename the services.

I had thought about capturing that field and using it in the renaming, but I don't know if it's possible either

If anyone has any ideas, they are welcome!

Hi JAR,
I think that you could try adding metadata to the process or server and later use it to change the name of the service.

oh i see. if the process its a websphere well you have plenty of options. all of them inside  the process group detect and process group properties. 

 

you can use  process group standalone i remember use this to separated the cells inside the WAS using the command line args. and next use this to get proper names for my services some time ago.  maybe this helps too.

 

hope it helps
