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 expand the "AppDynamics" card.
- Click + Integration. The integration configuration sidebar appears.
Give the integration a human-readable Name.
Click Connect to AppDynamics to authenticate in. A popup window opens.
Enter your AppDynamics host URL. The format should resemble
Enter your AppDynamics client ID. Your client ID is the name of your newly created API client combined with your account name in the format
Enter the Client Secret you received when you configured your AppDynamics API client.
Once you have successfully authenticated, return to the integrations page and enter 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.
Your AppDynamics application now receives events from LaunchDarkly.
To further modify the events that AppDynamics receives from LaunchDarkly, add custom policies to determine which events the integration should export.
LaunchDarkly sends all flag change events in the production environment to AppDynamics by default. To customize the events LaunchDarkly sends to AppDynamics, use the policy editor in the integration panel. To learn more about creating a policy, read Example policies and templates.
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|
|Flag, project, environment, etc.|
|The name of the flag. Sent only with flag events.|
|The flag's key. Sent only with flag events.|
|The resource's project name.|
|The resource's project key.|
|The resource's environment name.|
|The resource's environment key.|
You can now view LaunchDarkly events in AppDynamics.
