SetApplicationName (.NET agent API)

Syntax

NewRelic.Api.Agent.NewRelic.SetApplicationName(string $name[, string $name_2, string $name_3])

Set the app name for data rollup.

Requirements

Agent version 5.0.136.0 or higher.

Compatible with all app types.

Description

Set the application name(s) reported to New Relic. For more information about application naming, see Name your .NET application. This method is intended to be called once, during startup of an application.

Important

Updating the app name forces the agent to restart. The agent discards any unreported data associated with previous app names. Changing the app name multiple times during the lifecycle of an application is not recommended due to the associated data loss.

Parameters

$name

string

$name_3

string

Optional. Second and third names for app rollup. For more information, see Use multiple names for an app.
