Normalizing User Actions reported by Dynatrace Application Monitoring server

NAM Console, Deployment ► Manage devices, AppMon ServerOpen configuration, User actions

Use the Dynatrace Application Monitoring Configuration screen to control the way in which the User Actions monitored by the Dynatrace Application Monitoring Server should be reported by the NAM Server.

Dynatrace Application Monitoring Server reports the User Actions recorded as the result of the User Experience Management browser instrumentation, for example Loading of a Page or Click on Book Now . You can use the Dynatrace Application Monitoring Configuration screen to strip the User Actions of unwanted strings for the NAM Server reporting.

Click User Action in the left pane of the Dynatrace Application Monitoring Configuration screen.

Define the User Action definition.

  • To manually add a User Action to the list, type it in the New User Action field and click Add.

  • To select a User Action from existing definitions, click Edit in the Actions column.

To search for a specific User Action, type it in the Filter box. To clear the filter settings, click x.

You can either add an Included User Action to create a new definition for the NAM Server reporting or Excluded User Action to create a new definition for a User Action excluded from the NAM Server reporting.

When adding the definition, use a regular expression to match the User Action as reported by the Dynatrace Application Monitoring Server. The syntax allows you to use parentheses “()” to select one or more sub-expressions (specific portions of the results). If this mechanism is used, only the specified portions are reported; if more than one portion is specified, the portions are concatenated. Note that the syntax must comprise the rules for Java Regular Expressions, which is slightly different from POSIX used in the NAM Probe configuration.

Click Save and publish the configuration to the NAM Server.
