Server settings - updates

The AppMon Client issues a notification whenever an update is available.

You can also use the Plugins and updates REST API and selectively install an update on specified Agents.

Required permissions

Your AppMon user account must have the following permissions enabled to install, roll back, or remove an update: Manage Updates, Shutdown or Restart, and Shutdown or Restart Collector. See User Permissions and Authentication for more information.

Manage updates

In the general updates settings, select the Automatically update agents to latest versions check box to include the bootstrap Agent with the latest native Agent version available on the Collector. Clear the check box for the Collector to request the bootstrap Agents to use the same native Agent version as used last time.

Install an update

See the Install an update page.

Roll back an update

See the Roll back an update page.

Remove an update from the list

You can remove update files from the Server, to save disk space. An update must be inactive to remove it.

To remove an update file, in the Management tab of the Updates pane, select an install version from the list and click Remove. A message appears asking you to confirm the deletion. Click Yes to delete the update from the list. The update is deleted from the file system. The History tab displays a record of when the update was removed.


Never delete an update from the file system manually. This may result in the loss of any fixes installed by the update or may corrupt your installation.
