I've been looking for a while to pull the Flow View of the application ecosystem/infrastructure via the API. Viewing and interacting with the UI is incredibly powerful, but the ability to extract snapshots of the relationships is also highly useful.
I have been playing around with the backends and business-transactions queries by application id, but is there a way to get “in-between”?
By Application ID via API:
backends – Helpful, but not the full picture
applications – ??
business-transactions – Too detailed, i.e., shows transactions of parent application called but not parent itself
An example is a call center application making calls to a loyalty offer program in the AppD Flow View UI:
Via the API, you get all the business transactions tied to the loyalty offer program, but looking for a way to pull just the parent loyalty offer program.
Seems like there would be a way to pull the top-level “flow view” via API without coding cartwheels, but I am coming up empty.

That data is not available via any API.
You can extract flow map using https://github.com/Appdynamics/AppDynamics.DEXTER, specifically as part of https://github.com/Appdynamics/AppDynamics.DEXTER/wiki/Entity-Metrics-Report report. They are called Activity Grids in this context.
