If you want to... Do this...
View chart details

Mouse over a chart to see a pop-up with more detail. For some charts, selecting a point on the chart will take you to a UI page with more information about that metric.

Hide or return chart elements

To hide or unhide a displayed chart element, select that element's name below the chart. The chart display will adjust to reflect the absence or presence of that element.

Zoom in on a chart's time range

Drag across a section of a chart to zoom in on that selected range. You can also select specific time ranges with the time picker.

Time range selection

To select time ranges in New Relic products, use the time picker.

Update your account settings

The menu in the upper right of our UI is the account dropdown. Use the account dropdown to manage your account and user profiles.

Share charts and data

Features that help you share chart information include:

Feature Description
Permalink (permanent URL)

For most New Relic product UI pages that have charts, you can create a permalink to get a permanent URL for sharing chart details for a specific time period. Permalinks are useful for sharing an interesting time window or for troubleshooting problems that occurred at a specific time. For example, it can be helpful to include a permalink when you file a support ticket.

If present, the permalink feature is located at the bottom of a UI page. In New Relic Infrastructure, you must first select the ellipses icon.

Embedded iframe chart The chart-embed feature is available only for New Relic APM. Use this to generate iframe HTML code for embedding in a web page.
Get image

For New Relic Browser and Mobile, there is an option to get a shareable link that displays that chart view.

To use this feature (if available): select a chart's ellipses icon and then select Get as image.

Kiosk mode

Kiosk mode is only available for some New Relic products. This feature hides the menu bars and enlarges the main chart section of the UI page. This is helpful for displaying charts publicly, like at demos, advertisements, or trade shows.

  • To enable kiosk mode (if available): At the bottom of the UI page , select arrows-alt Kiosk mode.
  • To disable kiosk mode: Select the arrow arrows-alt icon in the upper right corner.

View a chart's NRQL query

Some New Relic charts are created with event data, and some are created with metric data. For the charts built using event data, you can view the underlying NRQL query.

Viewing a chart's NRQL query can help you to:

  • Get a better understanding of what data a chart is displaying
  • Get ideas on how to create a custom NRQL query and chart

To see the NRQL query for some New Relic charts:

  1. Mouse over a chart.
  2. Select ellipsis, then select View query.

Add charts to an Insights dashboard

For some New Relic charts, you can add the chart to an Insights dashboard. To use this feature:

  1. Mouse over a chart.
  2. Depending on the type of chart:

    • Select Add to Insights dashboard.


    • Select ellipsis and then select Add to Insights dashboard.

Rules for this feature include:

  • Charts created with a specific time frame (a set start time and end time) cannot have their time frame edited at a later time.
  • Some charts added to Insights with this feature may not support changing the value function. To change the value function for the metric, use the metric explorer to find and chart it.

For more information, check out New Relic University's tutorial: Add charts to Insights dashboards. Or, go directly to the full online course: Dashboards and data apps.

Access account information and features

To change account settings, notifications, or user preferences, select the account dropdown. For more information, see the account maintenance documentation.
