User code of conduct for the AppDynamics community

Welcome to the  AppDynamics online community! We'd like to encourage our users to utilize this space to participate in discussions, ask questions, find answers, and enrich our diverse community. Like the technical community as a whole, the AppDynamics team and community is made up of people from all over the world. 


We value diversity and inclusivity, and recognize that this can sometimes lead to communication issues, which is why we'd like to take a moment to set some ground rules which apply to all spaces within our community, including but not limited to the discussion forums, knowledge base, comment sections, etc. Please keep in mind that this is not an exhaustive list of things that you can not do, but rather a guide to make it easier for users to participate in discussions.


Please report all code of conduct violations to the moderation team by clicking on "Options" in the top-right corner of the post and then selecting "Report inappropriate content".

  • Be welcoming to all members of any race, sex, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity, culture, and national origin. 
  • Be careful with your word choice. Please conduct yourself in a professional manner.
  • Resolve disagreements respectfully. Please remember that often there is more than one right answer.
  • Post often! Our moderators and administrators want to encourage user engagement in thriving discussion threads.
