This topic describes installing the HTTP SDK automatically. You can install, update, and reinstall the HTTP SDK on every active application server node of the SAP system by using the Automatic SDK Installation program.

Before You Begin

  • To make automatic HTTP SDK installation possible, ensure that the Linux or Microsoft Windows operating system (OS) is installed on each application server node. For a different OS, use the remote SDK Manager on Linux gateway server.

  • Create a target directory on every application server node. The default directory is /opt/appdynamics (Linux) or C:\AppDynamics (Microsoft Windows).

  • Provide the OS user, <SID>adm or SAPService<SID>, with full permission on the target directory on each application server node.

  • Install the ABAP agent.

  • For an SDK update, stop all running SDK instances.

Install HTTP SDK

  1. Start the AppDynamics HTTP SDK Installation Manager application by using the transaction code /DVD/APPD_SDK. Alternatively, you can click SDK Installation in the customizing menu to start the application.
    The AppDynamics HTTP SDK Installation Manager screen appears. 

    Before the first SDK installation, a prompt to select custom installation directory appears. The selected directory is used for all application servers. Ensure that the SAP OS user has full access to selected directory. You can recall this prompt from menu Edit > Change Directory at any time.

  2. On the SDK Installation Manager screen, click Install SDK.
    When all the installation requirements are met, the application installs the HTTP SDK.

Verify if your installation is successful and looks similar to the following installation:
