Is there anything special in your setup? For example, are you using the Logstash or Kafka outputs? Are you using a load balancer in front of the APM Servers? Have you changed index pattern, generated custom templates, changed agent configuration etc.

Steps to reproduce:
1.Click on APM
2.Go to transaction Tree

Errors in browser console (if relevant): There isn't any error , but is there a way to do custom transaction naming and drilldown based on transaction ID

Provide logs and/or server output (if relevant):NA

Hi @Joy_Chatterjee,

You can customize transactions naming by using API, and using a similar code as the following in your application:

Transaction transaction = ElasticApm.currentTransaction();
if( transaction != null ) {

What do you mean exactly by drilldown here ? Transactions are composed of Spans, and you can also use the API to customize their name if needed.
