Hi, I have installed a Java agent with default setting, and I only get "request" in transaction type dropdown menu, is there a way to get more transaction types from the agent?
Hi @ElasticLiver ,
request is the type that is used for most request-based frameworks, and it's also used for HTTP.
If you want you can use the public API to override the default value.
if thats true, it means that the default settings of the agent will bring all the types of transactions that finds in the server and are in the supported technologies?
Yes and no, the
transaction.type is being set to
request for all the supported technologies that are request-based, thus it will be the case for HTTP and other similar protocols.
There are other types, for example
messaging for message-driven communication like JMS/Kafka/... or
scheduled for tasks that are handled by a scheduling framework, thus it's not a 1:1 mapping with the underlying technology.
However, if you need to know which framework is being used, then the
transaction.framework.version could be used, but those might not be visible yet on the UI in Kibana.
