The AppDynamics APIs let you extend and customize various aspects of the AppDynamics Application Performance Monitoring (APM) Platform. This page gives you an overview of the AppDynamics APIs. 

Overview of the AppDynamics APIs

The AppDynamics APM Platform exposes various APIs for customizing and extending its features. Generally speaking, they can be categorized as platform-side APIs, which are served by the Controller and Events Service, and agent-side APIs. 

The AppDynamics platform server components and agents offer the following APIs:   

  • Controller APIs: Use to administer the Controller, configure, monitor, query metrics, and more. For documentation see the Platform API Index, below. 
  • Accounts APIs: Use to manage and monitor accounts and users, and other aspects of AppDynamics licensing. For information about licensing, see License Management. The Accounts APIs are made up of the following modules:
    • actionsuppressions
    • businesstransactions
    • healthrules
    • licensemodules
    • mdsconfig
    • nodes
    • policies
  • Analytics Events API: Use to send custom analytics events from your own data sources to the Events Service. For documentation see the Analytics Events API section in the Platform API Index, below. 
  • Standalone Machine Agent APIs: HTTP APIs available at the machine agent for uploading custom metrics. See Machine Agent HTTP Listener
  • Database Agent APIs: Use to get, create, update, and delete Database Monitoring database Collectors. See Database Visibility API.
  • Application Agent Instrumentation APIs: Use to control and customize transaction detection and correlation, along with exit point detection. The agent APIs include: 
  • Mobile RUM: Instrument mobile applications for real user performance monitoring. See Instrument iOS Applications for more information. 

The following section lists the general platform APIs, API's served at the Controller and Events Service, that are documented in this section.
