The Elastic APM integration became generally available in 7.16 — see the APM Guide for updated documentation. Standalone APM Server users can see the Legacy APM Overview and Legacy APM Server Reference.
In addition to the APM Server users described in this documentation, you’ll likely need to create users for other APM tasks:
An APM reader, for Kibana users who need to view the APM app,
or create and edit visualizations that access
- Various APM app API users, for interacting with the APIs exposed by the APM app.
