This topic explains how to use the LaunchDarkly AppDynamics integration to view LaunchDarkly events in AppDynamics. AppDynamics is an application performance management (APM) tool. It allows customers to monitor the operational health of their application and infrastructure.
To configure LaunchDarkly to start sending events to AppDynamics:
Navigate to the Integrations page and click to expand the "AppDynamics" card.
Click + Integration. The integration configuration sidebar appears.
Give the integration a human-readable Name.
Click Connect to AppDynamics to auth in. At this point a popup window should open.
Paste in your AppDynamics host URL. The format should resemble
Paste in your AppDynamics client ID. This will be the name of your newly created API client combined with your account name in the format
Paste in the Client Secret you received when configured your AppDynamics API client.
Once you have successfully authenticated, return to the integrations page and input your AppDynamics account name in the appropriate field on the configuration panel.
Input your AppDynamics application ID or application name. The application name can be found on the "Applications" tab within AppDynamics.
Click 'Save AppDynamics Configuration' at the bottom of the configuration sidebar.
That's it! Your AppDynamics application now receives events from LaunchDarkly.
If you want to further modify the events that AppDynamics receives from LaunchDarkly, add custom policies to determine which events the integration should export.
By default, the AppDynamics integration sends production flag change events to AppDynamics. You can customize those events with the Policy editor, using the same language and construction as if you were creating a custom role.
To learn more, read Custom Roles.
You can customize the events LaunchDarkly sends to AppDynamics by using the policy editor in the AppDynamics configuration panel:
To view events, navigate to the "Events" tab within your application dashboard. From there, modify the default event filter so that you can see "Custom" events. All LaunchDarkly events are sent with a "Custom Event Type" of "LaunchDarkly" and the following properties can be used to further filter events in AppDynamics:
|Property Name||Property Value|
|kind||flag, project, environment, etc.|
|flag_name||the name of the flag - only sent with flag events|
|flag_key||the flag's key - only sent with flag events|
|project_name||the resource's project name|
|project_key||the resource's project key|
|environment_name||the resource's environment name|
|environment_key||the resource's environment key|
You should now be able to view LaunchDarkly events in AppDynamics.
