This page provides an overview of permissions for databases in AppDynamics. You can set Database permissions for custom roles from the Databases tab in the Controller Administration UI. See Roles and Permissions.

You can view metrics associated with database collectors by ensuring that the Custom view permission is enabled for the Databases application listed under Administration > Roles > Applications. From the Databases tab, you can configure database collector permissions for custom roles.
