Where can I find custom event schema in the Controller UI?

Where can I find custom event schema in the Controller UI?

I created a custom schema through the Custom Events API through curl. Where would I be able to view this schema in the Controller?

 

Also, how would I input my database tables through the schema? Would I need to write a script to upload the data, or is it possible for me to configure AppDynamics to automatically ingest data?

Kyzhou,

 

Refer this : https://docs.appdynamics.com/display/latest/Analytics+Events+API

 

Our Analytics event API can be used to create a schema and publish custom events to the Events Service.  Custom events will show up in the analytics UI and can be leveraged just like any other Analytics data source.

 

You need to use the publish API to input the datas.Refer the below

https://docs.appdynamics.com/display/latest/Analytics+Events+API#AnalyticsEventsAPI-PublishEvents

Thanks, once I published some events I could see the schema showing up as an additional table. In the UI would we also be able to delete the table, or must that be done through the API as well?

It needs to be done using the delete API AnalyticsEventsAPI-delete

Another question, if we update an existing schema to include more fields, what would happen to our existing data?

 

Would it be treated as if we had deleted the old schema and created a new one, removing all of our prior data, or would they continue to be stored?

 

Likewise, if we updated a schema to delete fields, what would happen to the events we already ingested?

Also, the documentation states that an analytics search metric will execute once per minute. Is it possible to schedule a query to run more frequently than once per minute?
