Not able to GET any application through /controller/rest/applications

I have monitored 2 applications (one Java app and one node.js app) in Appdynamics, but when trying to query the applications, it returned NO applications. Appreciate your advice on what might be wrong. Thank you.



I also tried to copy the REST URL Path from the metrics browser:

And the return shows:

<h1>HTTP Status 400 - Invalid application id newhello is specified</h1>
<hr />
<p><b>type</b> Status report</p>
<p><b>message</b>Invalid application id newhello is specified</p>
<p><b>description</b>The request sent by the client was syntactically incorrect.</p>
<hr />

Hi @Min Si.Phang,

Have you seen this AppD Docs page?

Please let me know if this helps.

Hi Ryan, 

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I was referring to the AppD Docs page, but it does not return any applications which are unexpected, because we have monitored several applications as can be seen from the UI screen captured above. 

curl --user user1@customer1:your_password


If you are hitting the API successfully and it's not returning any data, then its due the API client not having enough permissions. in  Settings / Administration / API Clients select the Client Name from the list, and take a look at the roles assigned, if there is no roles or the client is given a role that does not have sufficient permissions, then the data will return empty. 

I know this is from a year ago, but at least it's here in case someone else has a similar issue.
