FedRAMP endpoints

Logs and dimensional metric data are sent to New Relic via our Metric API and Log API endpoints either directly, by making an HTTPS request to the API, or indirectly by using an integration, a Telemetry SDK, or log forwarder. In order to send metric or log data to our FedRAMP-authorized environment, you must replace the standard Metric API and Log API endpoint with the corresponding FedRAMP-compliant endpoint:

  • Dimensional metrics:
    • Replace references to https://metric-api.newrelic.com/metric/v1 with https://gov-metric-api.newrelic.com/metric/v1
  • Logs:
    • Replace references to https://log-api.newrelic.com/log/v1 with https://gov-log-api.newrelic.com/log/v1

Unless you are sending the data directly to the API via HTTPS, the way you configure things will vary depending on the specific New Relic mechanism you are using. Here are tips on where you will need to make this configuration change:
