Summary

When you upgrade AppDynamics versions 4.0.x or 4.1.x to versions of 4.2 (prior to 4.2.1.4), all existing users are assigned the Analytics Administrator role. This role gives users view permission to all applications and permission to create API keys. The administrator should carefully review all permissions for those users and remove unneeded permissions manually.

When you upgrade to 4.2.1.4 and later, the Analytics Administrator role is assigned to users who already have the Administrator role. Non-admin users who had access to all the Analytics functionality in 4.1 will no longer have full access. The Administrators need to manually assign this role to users as needed or create new user roles and grant appropriate access to the Analytics functionality.

Affected Software

All 4.2.x versions prior to 4.2.1.4 version (Analytics).

Impact

Once customers upgrade to 4.2.1.4, "regular" users who had access to all the Analytics functionality in 4.1 will no longer have full access.

Resolution

Administrators need to manually assign the Analytics Administrator role to users as needed or create new user roles and grant appropriate access to the Analytics functionality. For any questions or clarification, please contact help@appdynamics.com.
