Company Administrators and License Administrators have the ability to manage their company user’s access for AppDynamics Accounts.
NOTE: Company Administrator roles are not available with self-service trials
Once a user has been enabled, they'll be able to access protected pages on appdynamics.com, submit Support tickets, download AppDynamics Software with cURL, and manage their own profiles.
This article walks Admins through how to add users, edit users, grant and revoke user roles, disable and enable users, and Delete pending users.
Alternatively, if you've already signed in to the accounts experience, you’ll be able to reach the User Management page using the link on the side navigation panel.
Company Administrators must bring users into their company’s account by registering them with AppDynamics.com using the Add User workflow.
In AppDynamics, a user email may only be associated with 1 company account. If you try adding a user and receive the error:
“This user email address is already a member of different AppDynamics
customer account and cannot be added to this company account.”
then that user already has an AppDynamics account using the same email for a different company account. In this situation, contact AppDynamics support for assistance.
The newly added user will appear in the company listing page with a status of “Pending.” The individual will receive a welcome email with a link that will enable them to complete their profile and password. On completion, their account status will change to “Active.”
The User Management page shows you a listing of all of your company users, a count of your registered company’s users, and a “Search” field. You can use this view your users and their status in the system, browse for users or search for them.
You can see all company users listed on your company User Management page. There, Company Administrators can see each user’s first names, last names, email addresses, roles, status, and last login information.
Last Login displays the last time a user provided their credentials successfully to access the system. The default sort will show you the users that were most recently logged in and using any part of appdynamics.com Account services.
You can use this view to browse for users, scrolling through the page as needed. The list is sortable as well as filterable. By default, the view is sorted by “Last Login” descending (as indicated by the downward arrow in the column header).
You can sort by any of the provided data columns by clicking the column header. Clicking once will sort by that column ascending. Clicking the same header a second time will toggle the sort on that column, so it’s descending. Clicking the header a third time will turn off the sorting of that column entirely.
It’s possible to sort by multiple columns too. For example, imagine you would like to sort your users by last name, and then sort by first name within the last name sort:
You would Click on the Last Name column header, and then Shift+Click on the First Name column header. The view will display a number “1” on the header of the first sort (Last Name) and a number “2” on the header of the second sort (First Name) as follows:
Use the “Search” field you to quickly reduce the volume of users displayed based on your desired criteria to identify a single user or group of users.
For example, searching for “Rob” will find any users with the 3 sequential letters “rob” in the displayed columns (except the “Last Login” column), such as Rob, Robert, Roberts, or Robin in any of the displayed data.
You can search on status, such as "Active," "Pending," or "Disabled." For example, a search for “Pending” will show a list of the users who have the word “pending” in their data.
You can search users by role.
For example, by searching for "admin" you will be able to find users with an "Admin" role: both License Admin and Company Admin. Searching for "support" will find any users containing the word "support within any displayed data. In practice, you can use this to find users with the Support role.
Searching for “@<insert domain name>” will find any users whose email is of the requested domain.
Once a user has been registered in the system, their user account can be changed to reflect new information or access through the Edit User workflow.
• First Name
• Last Name
• Company Admin role assignment
• Support role assignment
Please note that, as a Company Admin, you are unable to affect the user’s association with licenses unless you are also a License Admin. For Admins with only the Company Admin designation, the “License Admin” role is disabled.
For more information, see the help label on the bottom of the dialog:
In appdynamics.com Accounts, a user may not be deleted. But, you can prevent a user from logging in to your company information by disabling their user account. A disabled user can no longer sign in to the Accounts experience and will be unable to access any appdynamics.com Accounts capabilities. They can be re-enabled by the Company Admin if needed.
Appdynamics.com Accounts users are distinct from user accounts on your Controllers. Managing Accounts users, disabling Accounts users, and enabling Accounts users only affects their access to the Accounts experience and services.
Note: if you have selected a user whose status is NOT active, then the Disable button will not display, as you are only able to disable active users.
Often, it might be more efficient to handle user changes in batches. Accounts user management allows you the option to select many users to disable.
If you continue working in the Accounts experience, you will see a banner below the action bar, alerting you that the request has completed processing.
To see a report of the results, click the “status report” link on the confirmation banner.
Once the processing has completed, an email will be sent to you, alerting you that the request has completed processing. From that email, you can return to the User Management listing notification above to view the status.
If users who have previously been disabled must be reactivated, a Company Admin can enable them from
If you've selected a user whose status is Active, then the Enable button will not display, as you are only able to enable disabled users
As in the case of disabling multiple users at a time, Accounts User Management allows Company Administrators to select many users to disable.
Once processing is completed, a notification email will be sent to you. The email will alert you that the request has completed processing. It will include a link you can click to return directly to the User Management listing to view the status.
When a user is registered with AppDynamics Accounts through the Add flow, they are initially added as “Pending.” This means that they have not yet completed their account profile, nor have they logged in. Sometimes it is necessary to remove the pending user. Imagine that their email address was entered incorrectly or that the user has left the company before activating their account.
As a Company Admin, you may delete a pending user from the account. Deleting a pending user will ensure that the record is removed from the list and that the user may not create an account and access services.
