    As the application specialist, you can integrate App Visibility Manager with Real End User Experience Monitoring Software Edition to access code-level diagnostics data about a transaction from a monitored browser session.

    Together, passive end-user experience monitoring and application diagnostics enable your organization to perform the following functions to decrease mean time to repair and increase customer satisfaction:

    • Monitor the performance and availability of web applications in real time
    • Diagnose and resolve application, performance, and availability problems   

    Perform the tasks in the following sections:

    Before you begin

    Install the following products:

    • Install  Real End User Experience Monitoring Software Edition components
    • Install the App Visibility Manager components

    For an overview of the installation process, see the Installation process overview topic.

    You must have Administrator -level access, or higher, on the Real User Analyzer.

    You must register the Real User Analyzer as a component with the TrueSight Presentation Server. 

    In the App Visibility agent policies, integration with Real End User Experience Monitoring Software Edition and App Visibility Manager is enabled by default for out-of-the-box policies. In custom policies, you can enable the integration (such as after upgrade), or disable the integration for troubleshooting or to reduce transaction overhead if no integration is necessary.

    To configure integration in the Real End User Experience Monitoring Software Edition

    Perform the following procedures to configure the App Visibility Manager with Real End User Experience Monitoring Software Edition.

    Step 1: Add an application visibility server to connect the system to your portal

    1. In the Real User Analyzer, select Administration > Integration > Application Visibility Servers.
    2. Select the Add Application Visibility server hyperlink.
    3. Enter the URI of the App Visibility portal (or the high-availability load balancer) according to the following syntax, and click Save.

      https://<portalIP>:<portalPort>/portal/rest/truesight

    Step 2: Verify that the Real User Analyzer receives App Visibility custom fields

    1. In the Real User Analyzer, open the Reference Lists page.
    2. In the Object custom fields section, click Trace (object-level).
      If App Visibility agents for Java or .NET are active, and if the integration is set up correctly, several Trace IDs are displayed a few minutes after the integration setup.

    Results

    You can now drill down from the Session Browser to the Single Session view and Single Page view.

    If a details icon is displayed in the App.Visibility column, then trace details are available in the TrueSight console for the specific transaction. If the icon is absent, then trace details are not available.
