New Relic uses public minions to execute your synthetic monitors. These minions are deployed in different data centers around the globe and are in charge of running your monitors.
Because of this, ensure your firewall allows synthetics network requests. Minion IP addresses are publicly available in JSON format, so you can easily read and parse them.
- You can automate your rules for your allow list based on these files.
- You can add the IP addresses to your allow list by using a custom header.
- In S3 URL paths,
productionrepresents US-based accounts and
eurepresents EU-based accounts.
Minions are deployed on servers, and the agents are activated using non-personal credentials. IP addresses associated with minions running on servers are not personal data under data protection and privacy laws. For more information, see the Synthetic's security documentation.
IP addresses for released locations are subject to change. If a change is needed, we'll attempt to proactively notify customers prior to any changes via e-mail. You can also check the Explorers Hub for updates.
New IP address ranges require that you reconfigure your firewall settings.
The following table cross-references the synthetic's public minion locations with their location labels. You can query the
locationLabel attributes from the SyntheticCheck and SyntheticRequest events.
