Synthetics public minion IPs

New Relic Synthetics uses a group of minions to execute your monitors. These minions are deployed in different data centers around the globe, and they are in charge of actually running your monitors.

Because of this, ensure your firewall allows their network requests through it. These minion IP addresses are publicly available in JSON format, so you can easily read and parse them.

Recommendation: For easier maintenance, use these options:

  • Automate your rules for your allow list based on these files.
  • Add the IP addresses to your allow list by using a custom header.

Daily JSON listings for IP addresses

Some released locations (including Dallas, Fremont, and Newark) do not have static IP addresses. Their IP addresses are subject to change without warning.

New Relic updates these JSON listings daily, sometimes multiple times an hour:
