    You can set AppDynamics account permissions for custom roles from the Account tab in the Controller Administration UI. Most installations have one account per Controller. Usually, only very large installations or installations that have very distinct sets of users may require multiple accounts. Multiple accounts are part of the multi-tenant mode of installing the Controller. See Controller Deployment for details. In multi-tenant mode, the Controller UI context is divided into separate accounts. Each account has its own set of users, agents reporting to it, and application monitoring configuration.

    The account predefined role is the Account Owner. This role is also known as the account administrator and has all account-level permissions except Execute Workflows. This role also has the following permissions:

    • Can Create Applications and Dashboards
    • All Database Visibility (Databases) related permissions

    Most Account-level permissions can be considered administrative permissions and apply account-wide across business applications, products, and multiple application instances for the same account. The following table lists the permissions that can be set at the Account level.
