I'm monitoring application which uses Web API and like to create pbd that will be based on that.
Does anyone know how to do that, or if that supported somehow?

to get you an initial answer
If you're wanting to monitor .NET Web API, it requires .NET FW 4.5 so please check our Compatibility Guide for details on which versions support the framework.
If you're using ASP.NET MVC, we have a supported FieldPack which will instrument the frontend, models, views, and controllers. If you're interested in seeing that, please contact your CA Pre-sales or Services contact.
This was raised out of a support case, I advised the customer to raise something here.
My understanding from research is that this is a reference to the Web API documentation:
Searching on this, there are not default pbds that cover these particular namespaces, that's why I think it needs specifically extra instrumentation.
That's correct. The original PBD was simply a way to get some basic instrumentation from ASP.NET MVC, but with Srikant's extention, we'll get most all of the instrumentation from the library.
We may need to do some additional work specifically for Web API, but won't know for sure until someone tries it.
Please let us know if Hiko's answer was sufficient or if further helpful is needed
