This page describes the Data Collection Dashboard, which displays all collected and processed data by AppDynamics.

About the Data Collection Dashboard 

AppDynamics allows you to customize most data configurations. Due to the various AppDynamics agent types and products, you can change the configuration in many different places. This flexibility can make it challenging to keep track of all of your settings.

The Data Collection Dashboard addresses this challenge by providing a single, easy-to-access view of the current state of all of your configuration parameters that may affect your organization's security and privacy. The Data Collection Dashboard should help you understand what data AppDynamics is collecting for your configured application instance at any point in time.

The unified view is only available to admins.

To view the Data Collection Dashboard, click Settings  > Data Collection Dashboard.

The dashboard provides a read-only view. You can change the configuration values in the respective places of the platform.

You can find online help for a data collector type. To do so, navigate to Applications, choose an application, and then click Configuration > Instrumentation > Data Collectors. Click Help in the data collector box of interest to view more information on that particular data collector and how to configure it.

You can click Export to save a raw JSON file of the selected data collection settings and share with non-admins, auditors, and sales.
