Dynatrace already provides a range of options for generating consistent and readable user action names. With the latest release, we’ve added another option for generating user action names that provides you with even greater flexibility: user action names based on user input type.

To access user action naming rules

  1. Select Applications from the navigation menu.
  2. Select the application you want to configure
  3. Click the Browse (…) button.
  4. Click Edit.
  5. Select the User actions menu entry.

For default user action naming, Dynatrace now offers the following options

Load actions

  • Loading of <page>
  • User input

XHR actions

  • XHR URL
  • User input

Loading of <page> and XHR URL are the current default naming options for user actions. They result in user action names like Loading of page index.html and full XHR URLs. user action naming

User input for user action names

You can now use user input types such as click on to automatically name your user actions. User actions names consist of the user input type and the caption of the element (for example, Click on "Gallery" on page /image_gallery/).

Click Preview all rules to see what your user actions will look like once your naming rules are saved.
