Automated Role and Group Creation

Hi All, I was looking to create Appdynamics Groups and Role automatically by a job depending on the application Name. i was disappointed to see no REST API is available to update the custom role. But , I do recall using role creation based on a script in my previous org. What happened did that API is restricted now and why ? Thanks, Nishant kumar

Hi,

 

Currently this is not supported, we do have an internal request which take care of this, but as of now there is no ETA. 

 

Thanks,

Re: Automated Role and Group Creation

Was it possible in the previous versions? As i remember using it to create roles befor RBAC was introduced

Re: Automated Role and Group Creation

What priority will this change to create an API for role group creation and amendment be given?

It will add manual steps to the CI/CD pipeline without an API to automate it?

 

Similar for allocation of licenses / license rules.

 

Thank you.

Re: Automated Role and Group Creation

Is there an update on this api feature and how do we track the internal request for this feature?

Re: Automated Role and Group Creation

Don't know if there is any upvote option available - but this is really our ask.

Is there any Community Manger ? Can we have this feature include in Product backlog and provide more traction?

Are we having any community manager or active appd users checking our comments?

Re: Automated Role and Group Creation

Just wanted to check if AppD is thinking to work on this?

We also wanted to retireve the custom permissions data which is not feasible as if now.

 

I believe Managing roles and Permissions via API should be flexible enough and not sure why this has not been prioritized even after been discussed for so long.
