2018-05-30 Integrations: Changes to attribute names

Released on: 
May 30, 2018

Tags and labels attribute renaming

In order to make it easier to find common attributes across different data providers in New Relic Infrastructure, tags and labels attribute names are going to be renamed as label.<name>, where <name> is:

  • The tag key for Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure integrations
  • The label key for Google Cloud Platform integrations

The previous attribute names will be deprecated on June 21, 2018.

If you are using tags or labels in alerts, custom dashboards, or saved queries for New Relic cloud integrations, be sure to rename them using the new format before June 21, 2018.

Azure integrations: Resource group attribute renaming

To make it easier to find common attributes across different cloud services, the resourceGroup attribute will be replaced by the resourceGroupName attribute on June 21, 2018. This affects Infrastructure integrations for:

  • Azure Virtual Machines
  • Azure Service Bus
  • Azure Virtual Networks

If you are using the resourceGroup attribute in alerts, custom dashboards, or saved queries for these Azure services, be sure to rename them using the new format before June 21, 2018.

Amazon Web Services S3 permissions

The list of specific permissions that are required to fetch monitoring data from AWS S3 service has been updated with the additional s3:GetMetricsConfiguration permission in integrations and managed policies.

Recommendation: Use a custom policy only when you are unable to use the ReadOnlyAccess managed policy from AWS. If you use a custom policy, be sure to check that the listed permissions are included.
