The rule is enabled(true) or disabled (false).

required
conditions ConditionsOpaqueAndExternalWebRequestAttributeTypeDto[]

A list of conditions of the rule.

If several conditions are specified, the AND logic applies.

optional
applicationId ApplicationId optional
contextRoot ContextRoot optional
port Port optional
publicDomainName PublicDomainName optional

The PublicDomainName object

The contribution to the service ID calculation from the domain name where the web request has been detected.

You have two mutually exclusive options:

  • Override the detected value with a specified static value. Specify the new value in the valueOverride field.
  • Dynamically transform the detected value. Specify the transformation parameters in the transformations field.
Element Type Description Required
transformations TransformationBase[]

Transformations to be applied to the detected value.

optional
valueOverride string

The value to be used instead of the detected value.

optional
copyFromHostName boolean

Use (true) or don't use (false) the detected host name as base for transformation.

Not applicable if the override is specified.

optional

The Port object

The contribution to the service ID calculation from the port, where the web request has been detected.

Element Type Description Required
doNotUseForServiceId boolean

The port is used (false) or isn't used (true) in the service ID calculation.

optional

The ContextRoot object

The contribution to the service ID calculation from the detected context root.

The context root is the first segment of the request URL after server name. For example, in the www.dynatrace.com/support/help/extend-dynatrace/dynatrace-api/ URL the context root is support.

You have two options:

  • Keep a part of the detected URL. Specify the number of segments to be kept in the segmentsToCopyFromUrlPath field.
  • Dynamically transform the detected URL. Specify the transformation parameters in the transformations field.

You can use one or both options. If you use both, the transformation applies to the modified URL.

Element Type Description Required
transformations ContextRootTransformation[]

Transformations to be applied to the detected value.

optional
segmentsToCopyFromUrlPath integer

The number of segments of the URL to be kept.

The URL is divided by slashes (/), the indexing starts with 1 at context root.

For example, if you specify 2 for the www.dynatrace.com/support/help/dynatrace-api/ URL, the value of support/help is used.

optional

The ContextRootTransformation object

Configuration of transformation of the detected value.

If several transformations are specified, they are handled sequentially from top to bottom. Each transformation is applied to the result of the preceding transformation. For example, the second transformation is applied to the result of the first transformation.

The actual set of fields depends on the type of the transformation.

Element Type Description Required
type string

Defines the actual set of fields depending on the value. See one of the following objects:

  • BEFORE -> BeforeTransformation
  • REPLACE_BETWEEN -> ReplaceBetweenTransformation

  • REMOVE_IBANS -> RemoveIBANsTransformation
  • REMOVE_IPS -> RemoveIPsTransformation
The type element can hold these values.
required

The ApplicationId object

The contribution to the service ID calculation from the detected application ID.

You have two mutually exclusive options:

  • Dynamically transform the detected value. Specify the transformation parameters in the transformations field.
Element Type Description Required
transformations TransformationBase[]

Transformations to be applied to the detected value.

optional
valueOverride string

The value to be used instead of the detected value.

optional

The TransformationBase object

Configuration of transformation of the detected value.

If several transformations are specified, they are handled sequentially from top to bottom. Each transformation is applied to the result of the preceding transformation. For example, the second transformation is applied to the result of the first transformation.
