Steps to Create New Relic Forwarding

To forward your logs to New Relic, begin by logging into Apica's website.
  • Navigate to the Create tab and select the option for Forwarder.
  • Next, choose New Relic (HTTP event collector) from the available options; this will bring up a new form with fields such as API Key, Host, Tags, etc. Fill out the required data in these fields and click Create.
Create Forwarder:
Api_Key: <NEW-RELIC-API-KEY>
Host: log-api.newrelic.com
Tags: logflow
Type: _json
Name: New Relic
  • Next, head over to the Explore page and pick out a namespace you wish to forward your logs to New Relic from.
  • Click on the three dots icon located next to the calendar and opt for Map Forwarder; this will open a new modal which allows you to choose the newly created New Relic forwarder schema (this can be identified via its New Relic icon).
  • Confirm your selection by clicking OK.
  • A successful mapping is indicated by a popup showing that namespace-application pairs are connected with respective forwarders; additionally, you'll notice an updated Namespace Forwarder status in effect.
  • Your logs are now being forwarded to New Relic.
