AWS Trusted Advisor integration

The AWS Trusted Advisor is an online tool that provides real-time guidance to help you follow AWS best practices for provisioning your resources.

New Relic infrastructure integrations include an integration for reporting your service limits data to New Relic products. This document explains how to activate this integration and describes the data that can be captured.

Activate integration

To enable this integration, follow standard procedures to connect AWS services to New Relic.


This integration requires additional access permissions not covered by default managed policies. You can find out more on Integrations and managed policies page.

Configuration and polling

You can change the polling frequency and filter data using configuration options.

Default polling information for the AWS Trusted Advisor integration:

  • New Relic polling interval: 1 hour

In order to have fresh data, New Relic programmatically sends refresh requests to AWS. Trusted Advisor checks are automatically refreshed by AWS weekly only for customers with AWS Business or Enterprise Support plans.
