Hello, everyone! 

Welcome to the refreshed AppDynamics Community. We are so excited for you to see our new look and feel! 

We’ve been working on Community upgrades for a while now. This release includes an improved and modern style, geared toward greater usability of the content and the interactions you depend on. This update is just the beginning, with more enhancements coming soon.

We’d like to call out a few things in particular:

What’s new?

What's next?

What do you think?


Community Home page announcement tiles

One thing you will notice right away is the set of 3 new tiles on the Community home page. Here, we will present relevant and helpful information—from thought leadership, events, products and services, news and offerings, and much more. Be sure to keep an eye on them for current and meaningful content.


Discussion Forum topic updates

We’ve made a few changes to our Discussion forum, topics, topics better reflect Community needs. We’re also looking for your input, as well as preparing for more changes ahead. 


Check out our 3 new forums:



Privacy and Security

Discuss topics related to Privacy and Security with AppDynamics

General Discussion

Share topics or join in on discussions that are not strictly product-related.
Think of it as your Community water cooler.


Share your observations about the Community site, its content, navigation, design, etc., or about Community processes.
The more we know about what helps you, the better we can shape the Community’s direction. 


‘Latest Release’ topic retired

We recently retired the “Latest Release” topic area. Instead, just post in the most relevant topic area.
