Returns a new API object that is bound to the current SPA interaction.


Requires New Relic Browser agent version nr-963 or higher.

Access to this feature depends on your subscription level. New Relic's single page app (SPA) monitoring is only available with New Relic Browser Pro.


The SPA monitoring newrelic.interaction() call returns a new API object that is bound to the current interaction.

  • New interaction: If the API calls it when New Relic is not currently monitoring an interaction, a new interaction is created.
  • New object: If the API calls it again within the same interaction, a new object referencing the current interaction is created.


The parameters depend on the specific SPA interaction API call.

Return value(s)

This method returns an API object that is bound to a specific BrowserInteraction event. Each time this method is called for the same BrowserInteraction, a new object is created, but it still references the same interaction.


SPA API methods can be used on newrelic.interaction(). The methods can also be used on a handle you assign with a variable. For example:

myInteraction = newrelic.interaction()

The named handle can be saved and used from outside an interaction, but methods will have no effect after the interaction has ended.
