New Relic license key

Your New Relic license key is a 40-character hexadecimal string created when you sign up for a New Relic account. It's used to determine the account to which you send your APM and infrastructure data, and some New Relic features will require you to input it.


To prevent unexpected data to be sent to your account, treat your license key securely.

View and manage your license key

You can view the license key for your New Relic account in the API keys page.

  1. From the account dropdown, select Account settings.
  2. Select API keys from the options at the side of the page.

You can also get to the API keys page by navigating directly to https://one.newrelic.com/launcher/api-keys-ui.api-keys-launcher.

From there, you can view and manage your license key as well as other types of API keys.

You can also create additional license keys and manage them with our NerdGraph API.

Keep your license key safe

Your license key uniquely identifies your account and the data it reports to New Relic. Given its importance, you should treat it like a password.

If your license key falls into the wrong hands, an attacker could send fake data to your account, which could trigger false alerts and contaminate your data so that detecting actual issues is more difficult.

In the event your license key is accidentally shared and you’re seeing unexpected data, you can work with our Support team to change your license key.
