Dashboard Metric Expression Calculation Issue


Dashboard Metric Expression Calculation Issue

Hi folks


We have AppD running for some services we are monitoring, and I have noticed that on the metric expression calculation, if one of the values I am calculating against is "no data found" the calculation fails completely.


My question is this: Is there a way that we can configure the metric to show a zero where no data is found instead of "no data found"?

To overcome this issue, we need to set the com.appdynamics.metric.query.metricexpressions.tolerateNull flag to true in ControllerFlagServlet. If you are using a SaaS controller please reach out to AppDynamics support to enable this flag.


If you are using On-Prem Controller follow the below steps to enable the flag:

1. Login to <controllerURL>/controller/

2. Use root@system and controller root password for login

3. Look for metricexpressions.tolerateNull field and set it to ‘true’

4. Hit Submit button.
