To install the script on an on-premise premises controller:

  1. At the top level of the Controller installation directory, create a directory named "custom" with a sub-directory named "actions".

    No Format
  2. In the <controller_home>/custom/actions directory, create a subdirectory for each custom action script that you will install. For example, for an action that interfaces with a JIRA system.

    No Format
  3. Move the script to the appropriate subdirectory that you created in step 2.


  1. Create a custom.xml file that describes the location and name of your custom action script. See Contents of the custom.xml File.
  2. For an on-premise premises Controller, move the file to the <controller_home>/custom/actions directory. For a SaaS Controller, contact your AppDynamics sales representative for instructions.
