You can add public or private notes to charts in the New Relic APM user interface.
- Public notes can be viewed by anyone.
- Private notes can be viewed only by individuals who have access to your account.
The text editor supports some standard Markdown codes, including surrounding words with an asterisk (
*) to make them bold or surrounding them with an underscore (
_) to make them italic.
Add a note
The Notes function appears when you mouse over the APM chart or map. To create a note:
- Mouse over the chart or map.
- Select Add to note.
- Type your comments, then select the option to create a new note or append it to an existing one.
- To append the note, select your choice from the dropdown.
- To return to the page, select Save and close. Or, to select additional options to edit, share, or delete the note, select Save and go to note.
The note automatically appears when you select Save and go to note. The background of the chart changes to green to indicate the presence of a note and the time period viewed when the note was created. The text of the note appears when mousing over the green indicator.
When zoomed out, the green background continues to show the duration of time for which the note was set. Mousing over the indicator displays the note text.
