newrelic_accept_distributed_trace_payload

newrelic_accept_distributed_trace_payload (string $payload)
Accepts a distributed trace payload.

Requirements

Requires PHP agent version 8.4 or higher.

Description

Distributed tracing allows you to see the path that a request takes as it travels through a distributed system.

With PHP agent version 9.10 or higher, the following JSON functions are now considered deprecated and will be removed in a future release:

newrelic_create_distributed_trace_payload()

newrelic_accept_distributed_trace_payload($payload)

newrelic_accept_distributed_trace_payload_httpsafe($payload)

Instead, use the API that is compatible with W3C Trace Context support, added in agent version 9.8. With this, the API for manually instrumenting applications has changed from the JSON payload related functions to the following header array forms:

newrelic_insert_distributed_trace_headers($outbound_headers)

newrelic_accept_distributed_trace_headers($inbound_headers)

Parameters

Parameter Description

$payload

data type

Required: a JSON formatted string created by using newrelic_create_distributed_trace_payload.

Example(s)

For examples of how and when to use this API method, see the documentation to manually instrument applications and services.
