Download Tips

Always copy or transfer the downloaded files in binary mode. If you have downloaded a binary on Windows, and you are moving it to a Unix environment, the transfer program must use binary mode.

(warning) For each file you download, verify that the download is complete and that the file is not corrupted. Run a checksum tool and compare the results against the checksum information on the download site. 

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>' https://login.appdynamics.com/sso/login/
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>' https://login.appdynamics.com/sso/login/
curl -O -b cookies.txt <URL_TO_FILE>

You can discover the URL for the file to download at the AppDynamics Download Center. If you need help retrieving the <URL_TO_FILE> value, you can supplement your download process by using two APIs to help programmatically download AppDynamics software. After getting your cookie information, use the Version List API, which will return a JSON of all available versions and when they were made publicly available. Then, after finding your version, you can list all available products for that version with the Download File List API. Find the "download_path" value within the response and add it to the curl command.
