Default Golf 7 UDS battery replacement

Anyone done one of these yet? The VCDS' drop down menu for the CAN-Gateway Adaptations is completely different than their video shows. This is the first Golf 7 (with an AGM) battery I have had to replace and I cannot figure out the way to do it. Car in question is a 2017 Golf R.

This is the video:

And the car in question uses the UDS protocol (so the last segment) but where their drop down menu clearly shows the ones needed to be changed, mine has literally about 500 lines that pop up, nowhere in there can I find anything like what is shown, and no matter which line I try, the "sporadic communication" error comes up.

I *think* I was able to use the [awful] Autel scan tool but it really was not very clear on what I was actually entering in which field.

The battery I removed was dead, and an Exide. The new one is a Varta, so I clearly need to make some changes.
