We have a rest API that you can use to pull metrics. Easiest way to get the metric path is to go to your Controller -> (Select your Application under "Applications") -> Metric Browser (left menu)
Select the metric(s) you want and right click on it and you should get a "copy REST Url". That should do the trick to grab the metric information you require..
If you are running this from a script you will probably need to authenticate wit HTTP which is described here..https://docs.appdynamics.com/display/PRO44/Using+the+Controller+APIs#UsingtheControllerAPIs-Authenti...
Thanks for the reply Kevin. I am aware of how to get the URL via the Web UI but I'd like to replicate that action from a script. I couldn't find anything specific in the API docs that pointed me to how to do that without using the UI. Does that help clear up what I am trying to accomplish?
For App FooBar use API call to get REST URL for all metrics/specific metric
I'll second Stephen's request/question. It would be really helpful if there's some mechanism/endpoint one could hit that exposes a comprehensive list of metrics exposed by AppDynamics. This would enable complete automation of extracting metric data. If there's no endpoint that lists out metrics, is it possible to derive the metric path by making successive calls to the metrics hierarchy endpoint and looking at the child elements with each metric item?
