This page provides the account-level permissions available in Cisco AppDynamics. You can set account permissions for custom roles from the Account tab in the Controller Tenant Administration UI. Most installations have one account per Controller Tenant. Usually, only very large installations or installations that have very distinct sets of users may require multiple accounts.
- Each account has its own set of users, agents reporting to it, and application monitoring configuration.
- The Account Owner, also known as the account administrator, is a predefined role that has all account-level permissions. This role can create applications and dashboards and has all database visibility-related permissions.
- Most Account-level permissions can be considered administrative permissions and apply account-wide across business applications, products, and multiple application instances for the same account.
The following table lists the permissions that can be set at the account level.
