Downloading from the Linux Shell

To download AppDynamics software from a Linux shell, you can use the wget utility or cURL.

When using these tools, you first need to authenticate to the AppDynamics domain and store the resulting session ID in a file. Next, send the request to download the software, passing the session information file as a cookie.

For example, on Fedora you can use the following wget commands:

wget --save-cookies cookies.txt  --post-data 'username=<USERNAME>&password=<PASSWORD>'
wget --content-disposition --load-cookies cookies.txt '<URL_TO_FILE>'

On the Windows platform add the --no-check-certificate option.

The equivalent cURL commands are:

curl -c cookies.txt -d 'username=<USERNAME>&password=<PASSWORD>'
curl -O -b cookies.txt <URL_TO_FILE>

You can discover the URL for the file to download at the AppDynamics Download Center.
