Hi @Scott.Godfrey


Thank you for posting your query on AppDynamics Community.


The doc link you have shared is obsolete. You might want to refer to the latest docs on Call Graphs.


Let us also know what version of the Controller are you using and any other specifics that can help us narrow down the correct solution.

I used the FastAppConfig tool to deploy the Tier Detail Dashboard and wanted to add Total Number of Calls to the Dashboard; however, I do not see that as a metric I can add from the metric browser for a tier, screen images attached.
