FedRAMP-compliant endpoints

This document provides information on FedRAMP-compliant endpoints in New Relic. For more information about our security accreditation for the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP), see our data encryption documentation. For further information on New Relic networks, domains, and ports see our networking documentation.

Customer FedRAMP obligations

New Relic customers must meet all of the following requirements for New Relic’s FedRAMP environment:

  1. New Relic-approved customers: New Relic’s FedRAMP-Moderate authorized environment is only available to New Relic-approved customers. For more information, contact your New Relic account representative.

  2. Order form: Customer’s order form with New Relic must include customer’s eligibility for FedRAMP.

  3. Subscription level: Customer must have a current and valid subscription to New Relic Full-Stack Observability Enterprise or New Relic-approved subscription.

  4. Authorized New Relic endpoints: Customer must send its data only to New Relic’s FedRAMP-designated endpoints.

  5. Authorized services and features: Customer must use only FedRAMP audited and authorized New Relic services and features (see below).

Overview of data sources

There are multiple ways to get data into New Relic. This doc has two sections:

  • Agent settings: for our APM agents, infrastructure agent, browser agent, and mobile agent.
  • Data-ingest APIs: for our Metric API, Event API, Trace API, and Log API, and the integrations that use those APIs.


New Relic has several agents for reporting data, like our APM agents, infrastructure agents, mobile agents, and browser agent. Setting these agents to send FedRAMP-compliant data involves setting a configuration setting to use the relevant FedRAMP endpoint.

APM agents

To ensure FedRAMP compliance, all APM agent configurations must report to gov-collector.newrelic.com rather than the default. Depending on the agent, you can either use code-based configuration or an environment variable. Here are details on enabling this:


Code or environment variable


In code:

strcpy(_newrelic_app_config_t->redirect_collector, "gov-collector.newrelic.com");

Environment variable: none


In code:

app, err = newrelic.NewApplication(
newrelic.ConfigAppName("App Name"),
func(cfg *newrelic.Config) {
cfg.Host = "gov-collector.newrelic.com"

Environment variable: NEW_RELIC_HOST


In newrelic.yml:

common: &default_settings
host: gov-collector.newrelic.com

Or set a system property of:


Environment variable: NEW_RELIC_HOST


In your XML config next to the license key:

<service licenseKey="YOUR_LICENSE_KEY"

Environment variable: NEW_RELIC_HOST


In newrelic.js:

host: 'gov-collector.newrelic.com'

Environment variable: NEW_RELIC_HOST


In newrelic.ini:

newrelic.daemon.collector_host = gov-collector.newrelic.com

Environment variable: none


In newrelic.ini:

host = gov-collector.newrelic.com

Environment variable: NEW_RELIC_HOST


In newrelic.yml:

common: &default_settings
host: gov-collector.newrelic.com

Environment variable: NEW_RELIC_HOST

Elixir (open source agent)

In config.exs:

config :new_relic_agent,
host: "gov-collector.newrelic.com"

Environment variable: NEW_RELIC_HOST

For more on configuring APM agents, see APM configuration.

Mobile monitoring agents

To ensure FedRAMP compliance when using our mobile monitoring agents, all agent configurations must report to gov-mobile-collector.newrelic.com rather than the default. You must use code-based configuration. Environment variables are not available.

Framework-specific configurations:


Code or environment variable


In code:


Environment variable: none


In code:

[NewRelic startWithApplicationToken:@"{APP_TOKEN}"

Environment variable: none

Infrastructure monitoring

If you have infrastructure agent version 1.15.0 or higher, simply enable the FedRAMP configuration option. This enables FedRAMP compliancy for data reported by the infrastructure agent, and for any on-host integrations that work with the infrastructure agent to report data.


The AWS CloudWatch Metric Streams integration is not currently FedRAMP compliant.

If you have an older agent version, use the following values to edit your YAML configuration:

Browser agent

To configure the browser agent to use a FedRAMP-compliant endpoint, you must use the copy-paste method method (other browser agent install methods are not supported) and edit the browser code’s script element tag so that the domain is gov-bam.nr-data.net for both beacon and errorBeacon, like this:


Note: You only need to modify the beacon and errorBeacon properties in the NREUM.info object. These values will override the default values found in the NR loader script.

Data-ingest APIs

Below are details about the FedRAMP endpoint for our ingest APIs: Metric API, the Event API, the Log API, and the Trace API.


To ensure FedRAMP compliance when using the OTLP API, instead of sending to the US OTLP API endpoint of https://otlp.nr-data.net:4317, send data to https://gov-otlp.nr-data.net:4317.

Metric API

To ensure FedRAMP compliance when using the Metric API, instead of sending metric data to the default Metric API endpoint of https://metric-api.newrelic.com/metric/v1, it must be sent to https://gov-metric-api.newrelic.com/metric/v1.

The Metric API can be used directly but it's mainly used by various New Relic tools. Below are instructions showing where to edit the configuration for setting the FedRAMP endpoint.

Telemetry integrations

Here are instructions for our open source telemetry integrations that report metric data:

Telemetry SDKs

Here are instructions for our Telemetry SDKs that report metric data:

Event API

To ensure FedRAMP compliance for the Event API, all traffic reporting to insights-collector.newrelic.com must instead report to gov-insights-collector.newrelic.com.

The Event API endpoint is configurable for the following Telemetry SDKs. The Telemetry SDKs are used by our open-source telemetry integrations.



Java Telemetry SDK

In code:

SenderConfiguration configuration = SenderConfiguration
EventBatchSender eventBatchSender = EventBatchSender.create(configuration);

Python Telemetry SDK

In code:

event_client = EventClient(host="gov-insights-collector.newrelic.com")

For more information, see our Telemetry API documentation in GitHub.


To ensure FedRAMP compliance for data sent via the Log API, the solution for almost all our logging tools is to replace the https://log-api.newrelic.com/log/v1 endpoint with https://gov-log-api.newrelic.com/log/v1. Here are details for various tools:

Log forwarders

Here are details on changing the endpoint for our log forwarders:

To use the Log API directly, you'd edit the Log API endpoint configuration.

Trace API

To ensure FedRAMP compliance for data sent via the Trace API (including telemetry integrations that use this API), replace the https://trace-api.newrelic.com/trace/v1 endpoint with https://gov-trace-api.newrelic.com/trace/v1.
