How to disable auto name detection for databases in dynatrace?

We are picking up database names as Mongo DB for all the DB's being identified.

How do we see the actual DB name?

Any extra config required?

Hi Srikrishna,

I would suggest selecting one of these database services, go to the service page in Dynatrace for this database and expand the drop down for the "Properties and Tags" right below the DB service name. Here you will see all the properties captured by Dynatrace for this database service. Normally "Database name" and "Database vendor" should be two properties there. If you notice that the Database name property is correct there but the database service is detected and named as the database vendor, I will suggest you create a service naming rule in Settings -> Server side service monitoring -> service naming rules and have the service naming format be {Service:DatabaseName} and have it apply to all database services

Hope This Helps
