301 response for REST API calls

Problem

Your REST API call returns a 301 error message that may include some or all of this information:

curl -X GET 'http://rpm.newrelic.com/v2/applications/1234567890.json' \
     -H 'X-Api-Key:REDACTED' -i
HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
Status: 301 Moved Permanently
Location: http://rpm.newrelic.com/v2/applications/1234567890.json
...
You are being redirected https://rpm.newrelic.com/v2/applications/1234567890.json

OR

curl -X GET 'http://rpm.newrelic.com/v2/applications/1234567890.json' \
     -H 'X-Api-Key:REDACTED'
You are being redirected https://rpm.newrelic.com/v2/applications/1234567890.json

Solution

New Relic requires HTTPS for all traffic to New Relic APM and the New Relic REST API. This includes both inbound and outbound traffic. If your REST API call uses HTTP, change your script or program to HTTPS.
