AppDynamics

The AppDynamics integration allows you to retrieve events from AppDynamics and send them to Moogsoft AIOps.

When you use the integrations UI, you can only configure the visible properties. If you want to implement a more complex AppDynamics LAM with custom settings, see Configure the AppDynamics LAM

See the AppDynamics documentation for details on AppDynamics components.

Before You Begin

Before you start to set up your AppDynamics integration, ensure you have met the following requirements:

  • You have an active AppDynamics account.

  • You have the necessary permissions to configure Alert and Respond templates, actions, and policies in AppDynamics.

  • AppDynamics can make requests to external endpoints over port 443.

Configure the AppDynamics Integration

You can configure the AppDynamics integration in Moogsoft AIOps as follows:

  1. Navigate to the Integrations tab.

  2. Click AppDynamics in the Monitoring section.

  3. Follow the instructions to create an integration name.

See Configure the AppDynamics LAM for advanced configuration information.
