  • Enterprise Console

This version of Enterprise Console (EConsole) provides significant enhancements to the High Availability (HA) management functionality previously available. In this version of EConsole, the HA Toolkit has been integrated into EConsole via the HA Module that EConsole installs onto the HA Controller cluster. The HA Module manages high availability functionality such as replication and failover even if EConsole is not running or is otherwise unavailable. For more information, see Migrate an HA Pair Using Enterprise Console.

  • The Tiers & Nodes dashboard by default only shows the tiers and nodes that receiving performance data for the selected timeframe. You can use a filter to view tiers and nodes receiving performance data, not receiving performance data, or all tiers and nodes.
  • Whenever a user is deleted from the user list, any custom dashboard that the user has created becomes non-functional with no permissions, and is unable to execute properly. This impacts all associated dashboard-based reports and shares. You can solve this problem using the Recover function.

July 8, 2019


  • Application name is added to the entities that are defined in the Controller Audit for OBJECT_CREATED and OBJECT_UPDATED. See Controller Audit Log for more details.
  • Flash is disabled by default for the entire Controller UI.
  • The Metric Browser also only shows by default the nodes for business applications that are receiving performance data for the selected timeframe. You can also use a filter to view nodes receiving performance data, nodes not receiving performance data, or all nodes.
  • AppDynamics enables the monitoring of all containers on the host machine through the sim.docker.monitorAPMContainersOnly property.  By default, only containers with APM agents running inside are monitored but this behavior can be changed by setting this property to false. 
  • You can now set permissions for the Analytics API Key on Connected Devices.
