    Hi pratysin,

     

    Here is our official statement regarding 3rd part apps on the gateway. Unfortunately we do not have any documentation to assist in setting up Appdynamics.

     

    When possible, we recommend that you utilize the API Gateway's built-in functionality before installing external applications. When the API Gateway's built-in functionality does not meet your requirements, we permit our customers to install additional applications without terminating or negatively impacting the support agreement between your organization and ours.

     

    As with any change to the API Gateway, we strongly recommend that thorough testing in non-critical environments is carried out before escalating the deployment to more business-critical production systems. Please keep in mind that we may request that this software / application be removed from the system during subsequent support requests where we feel the third-party application may be interfering with the proper operation of the API Gateway.

     

    Lastly, we do not include updates for external applications, tools, or their dependencies in API Gateway patches or platform updates. Upgrading an appliance may cause previously working configurations of your third-party tool to break, and such action would not be supported by CA Technologies. Since we do not provide updates for these external applications, we also do not test them. As such, external applications may create security vulnerabilities in our product that would not be present on a certified API Gateway appliance.

     

    Regards,
