This page provides an overview of permissions for databases in AppDynamics.

You can set Database permissions for custom roles from the Databases page in the Administration UI. See Create and Manage Custom Roles.

Navigate to Administration > Roles > Applications > Databases and ensure that the Custom view permission is set to active to view metrics associated with database collectors. You can also configure database collector permissions for custom roles.

For each custom role, you can select which databases the user is allowed to view, edit, or delete, and you can enable global permissions applying to database collectors.
