Custom user action naming rules for Mobile apps



We have noticed that for a mobile app Dynatrace assigns the same name for a user acionS, for instance, we have multiple user actions with the name "touch on Continue" as there are multiple parts in the app where there's a continue button, and it's difficult differenciate those user actions.
is there a way to define custom naming rules for mobile apps? where for example we could  add the page title next to the name without having to change all the application parts that contain this action as we do using placeholder for a web application?

I don't see an option to do this in the WebUI, in case there's not, what other options do we have to
accomplish this? is there something we can do with the SDK?

Hey Alejandro,

There are a couple of ways this should be possible depending on how the application is instrumented and what technology its using. For android/iOS you can find the docs below for changing it using the SDK.

Creating custom actions with custom names

Modifying existing actions and reporting custom names/values

Additional docs for other frameworks

If none of this is helpful then might I ask what framework you are using?

If you are using hybrid Cordova here you go to use OA plugin. You can work on a custom agent as well and refer suggestion from @Fin_Ubels
