Extract Server Tags from API

Is it possible to get the TAG data of a server from the AppDynamcis API?

I have a Machine Agent installed on an ubuntu hosted on AWS and from the AppDynamics > Servers > Dashboard I can see a pane with "Tags", i.e.:

AWS|Instance-Type

AWS|region

AWS|ami-id

etc..

 

I am looking for a way to extract this information from the AppDynamics API.

Hey Lyubo

 

You can do it the following way

 

Query Auth, to get Token etc.

 

curl -i --user <username>@<accountname>:<password> https://<controller details>/controller/auth?action=login

 

Then you query the following 

curl -i -H "Cookie:JSESSIONID=47a106d019813087b904e61f680e;" -H "X-CSRF-TOKEN:f62197d00f39a1fbd5e30852985926173c6328ea" -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "Accept: application/json" https://<controller details>/controller/sim/v2/user/machines/<machine id>

 

 

It brings back everything, including the tags

 

Ciao

Hey Mario,

 

That's perfect! Thanks a lot!

 

Is this API available on some documentation? I couldn't find it anywhere...

Also, are there any other APIs available which are not described here:
https://docs.appdynamics.com/display/PRO45/AppDynamics+APIs

Hey Lyubo

 

AppDynamics will only publish their public API's, which they support and will be standardized.

 

Sometimes these don't have the functionality we require.

The easiest way to find one that are not documented is to use developer options, load the page/data in the UI, and check what calls it's making:)

 

However Appdynamics will also tell you these are subject to change anytime, as they are not meant to be used this way.

 

Ciao
