How to automate application onboarding to AppDynamics using mutating webhooks

Observability provides insights into application performance and uptime, enabling organizations can determine what changes and improvements to make. Using mutating webhooks, Platform Engineers at Interswitch ensure that as applications are deployed, Kubernetes updates their manifests with the AppDynamics agent details required for onboarding, ensuring compliance across applications running on the cluster.

This presentation will detail how to use Python to add an init container, volume, volume mount, environment variables, arguments, and commands needed to onboard a Kubernetes application on AppDynamics.

Our process optimizes onboarding applications to monitoring platforms. It removes the need for manual configurations in an application to enable monitoring and takes an approach to observability using continuous delivery concepts. It also ensures the monitoring of all applications on a cluster because the configuration is part of the deployment.
