Delete application by API


Delete application by API

Hi folks,


We're using kubernets here and a wrong configuration created a lot of Applications, one for each pod. I used the AppDynamicsREST project in python to list all wrong application name but I can't find a way to delete them.


Do you know if it is possible?

Re: Delete application by API

Hi Kadu,
Thanks for posting the question on the Community.
Application deletion API exists, and this needs authorization token retrieval first, so could you try these lines of execution? Caution to pass only your target application ID in <application_ID>.
  1. curl -s -c cookie.appd --user <username>@<customer name>:<password> -X GET "http://<url>:<port>/controller/auth?action=login"
  2. X_CSRF_TOKEN="$(grep X-CSRF-TOKEN cookie.appd|rev|cut -d$'\t' -f1|rev)" 
  3. X_CSRF_TOKEN_HEADER=$([ -n "$X_CSRF_TOKEN" ] && echo "X-CSRF-TOKEN:$X_CSRF_TOKEN" || echo '')
  4. curl -X POST <url>:<port>/controller/restui/allApplications/deleteApplication -H "Content-Type: application/json;charset=UTF-8" --data "<application_ID>" -b cookie.appd -H "$X_CSRF_TOKEN_HEADER"
Please run these queries by the user who has delete permissions on your applications.
Let me know if this helped you.
Many thanks,

Naoto Yamamoto

Curl command produces this cookie file for 20.4 version.

The next two commands fail to parse obviously.

Can you suggest?


Also, would this sequence of steps delete all artifacts of the app - BTs, Tiers, and Nodes?
