AppDynamics API for downloads

SOLVED
Highlighted

I'm just starting to delve into the APIs, with an initial interest in automating the download and install of the Java Agent onto a Linux or Solaris host server.

 

My very early playing around has led me to be able to interrogate the controller to find the schema version....

 

curl --user me@myaccount:mypassword http://mycontroller:8090/controller/rest/configuration?name=schema\.version

 

... which returns...

 

<configuration-item>

  <name>schema.version</name>

  <value>004-002-007-001</value>

  <description>Current version of the controller&apos;s schema, used to track upgrades.</description>

  <updateable>false</updateable>

  <scope>cluster</scope>

</configuration-item>

 

Now that I can do some scripting to find out my controller version (i.e. 004-002-007-001), it'd be great to use that version number in a rest call to the downloads.

 

Are there a restful api endpoints for the 4.2.7.1 Java Agent for Sun and for IBM JVMs?

There's no rest interface to the AppDynamics downloads site as far as I can tell, you could however simply do a get as the filename can be determined:

 

https://aperture.appdynamics.com/download/prox/download-file/sun-jvm/4.2.7.1/AppServerAgent-4.2.7.1.... - this is the agent for the SUN

https://aperture.appdynamics.com/download/prox/download-file/ibm-jvm/4.2.7.1/AppServerAgent-ibm-4.2.... - this is the IBM agent

 

Alernatively, you could host the versions in your own internal network and simply get this by your own naming standard. You may want to deploy a later version of the agent (same major/minor version) than you are running on the controller so if you always copy/GET the latest 4.2.X version. This would require the versions/media to be maintained however.

Actually there is a way and its documented here:
