Getting Started

If you have not already installed and configured Elastic APM, the APM > Getting Started page in Kibana provides information to help you complete the setup.

Installation instructions on the APM page in Kibana

After you install the Elastic APM agent library in your application, the application automatically appears in the APM UI in Kibana. No further configuration is required.

If you also use Elastic Stack for logging and server-level metrics, you can optionally import the APM dashboards that come with the APM Server. You can use these APM-specific visualizations to correlate APM data with other data sources. To get the dashboards, run the following command on the APM server:

./apm-server setup

For more setup information, see Getting Started with APM.
