Application Performance Management
App iQ .NET Core for Linux SDK
The .NET Core for Linux SDK lets you monitor the performance of .NET Core applications running on Linux with App iQ.
The SDK supports the following:
- Business Transaction registration and error reporting
- Exit call with correlation and error reporting
- Snapshots with user properties but without callgraphs
- Audit logging coverage has been made more comprehensive. It now includes the following:
- Changes to configuration settings, for example, health rules, policies, actions, and so on.
- Application deletion
- Audit log, report, and API details have been enhanced to include more information about what was updated.
- Audit Reports:
- You can use include/exclude filters in scheduled audit reports and rest API.
- There is also support for JSON and CSV formats for audit reports.
- You can enable or disable persistence of audit log state-change data using audit.log.changes.persisted flag in the admin.jsp file.
Data Collection Dashboard
You can view the current state of all configuration parameters that may affect your security and privacy from a single dashboard view. These settings include retention settings, custom data collectors, IP-address retention in EUM, and so on. See Data Collection Dashboard for more information.
Custom Dashboard Viewer permissions
- A custom dashboard viewer can view all data that the dashboard owner is permitted to view on the controller-level custom dashboards, regardless of application-level or other restrictions applied on the dashboard data.
This customizable statement is present in all areas of the AppDynamics UI where data collection can be configured.
- Authentication and authorization security enhancements have been made to the AppDynamics App iQ Platform in the form of scalable, securable, and admin configurable support:
- You can create and use API Clients to provide secure access to the Controller through REST API calls. These calls now use OAuth token-based authentication over basic authentication. See API Clients for more information.
- The SAML authentication can handle encrypted SAML responses from identity providers. You can enable SAML Encryption on Authentication Provider of Administration on your Controller.
- When creating usernames in SAML in Azure environments, the UserName attribute is used if it is passed along. The NameID attribute is not handled if it is passed backinAzure. If you relied on the legacy behavior of concatenating the first name and surname, then you can work around this enhancement by changing your Azure provider to return the concatenated names in the UserName attribute.
The UI for configuring health rules and policies has been redesigned to create a cleaner look and make it more intuitive. For more information, see, Configure Policies, Configure Health Rules, Health Rules, and Mobile Health Rules.
- License rules are now supported for Service Availability Monitoring (SAM). You can view the SAM license graph on the Rules tab under License.
- You can create license rules using the REST API.
