April 19, 2023
Node.js agent v10.0.0

Notes

  • BREAKING - Updated the default of config.transaction_tracer.record_sql from off to obfuscated. This means that sql statements will be captured but obfuscated.

  • BREAKING - Route (URL) parameters are now stored as request.parameters.route.* attributes on Transactions, root Segments and Spans.

    After this change, the following becomes true:

    • Query parameters will be available as attributes prefixed with request.parameters.* on Transactions and Spans.

    • Route parameters will be available as attributes prefixed with request.parameters.route.* on Transactions and Spans.

    • Route parameters (aka url parameters) are a common feature of various web frameworks, where you can create a placeholder as part of an API route definition.

      For example, given the following Express route definition and request url:

      app.get('/api/users/:id', myMiddleware, myController)
      bash
      $
      curl http://localhost:3000/api/users/abc123?id=true

      The route parameter is id, and has a value of abc123. This would become request.parameters.route.id: abc123 on the Transaction, root Segment, and Span attributes. This example also has a query parameter of id, which has a value of true. This would become request.parameters.id: true on the Transaction, root Segment, and Span attributes.

  • BREAKING - Removed captureUrlParams from WebFrameworkShim class.

  • DEPRECATION NOTICE: shim.unwrap and shim.unwrapOnce will no longer function if you attempt to unwrap an item that has been wrapped multiple times.

    • This is because since we now allow instrumenting the same module more than once, you cannot safely unwrap without breaking all registered instrumentation. We plan to remove shim.unwrap and shim.unwrapOnce in the next major release.
  • Added the ability to register instrumentation multiple hooks (onRequire, onResolved) for the same resolved moduleName.

    • This has been a limitation of the agent from the beginning.
    • If you used the api to instrument api.instrument, api.instrumentDatastore, api.instrumentWebframework, api.instrumentMessages, or api.instrumentConglomerate, it would override existing instrumentation hooks. The effect was that the Node.js agent would not function as designed.
  • Refactored lib/transaction/tracecontext.js to reduce cognitive complexity.

  • Refactored lib/transaction/trace/index.js to reduce cognitive complexity.

  • Upgraded devDependencies jsdoc, and lean-jsdoc-theme.

Support statement:

  • New Relic recommends that you upgrade the agent regularly to ensure that you're getting the latest features and performance benefits. Additionally, older releases will no longer be supported when they reach end-of-life.

April 4, 2023
Node.js agent v9.15.0

Notes

  • Added a new configuration option heroku.use_dyno_names to specify whether or not to use process.env.DYNO for naming the host name and display host. This option defaults to true. If you are on heroku and do not want this functionality set heroku.use_dyno_names to false. You can also control this configuration options with the environment variable of NEW_RELIC_HEROKU_USE_DYNO_NAMES. Thanks @benney-au-le for your contribution 🚀

Support statement:

  • New Relic recommends that you upgrade the agent regularly to ensure that you're getting the latest features and performance benefits. Additionally, older releases will no longer be supported when they reach end-of-life.

March 23, 2023
Node.js agent v9.14.1

Notes

  • Restored assigning loaded version of agent to require.cache as __NR_cache instead of a symbol to properly detect attempts at loading agent twice.

Support statement:

  • New Relic recommends that you upgrade the agent regularly to ensure that you're getting the latest features and performance benefits. Additionally, older releases will no longer be supported when they reach end-of-life.

Node.js agent v9.14.0

Notes

  • Added new API function called setErrorGroupCallback, which provides a way for you to customize the error.group.name attribute of errors that are captured by the agent. This attribute controls how the Errors Inbox functionality groups similar errors together. To learn more about this function, please refer to our example app.

  • New Relic recommends that you upgrade the agent regularly to ensure that you're getting the latest features and performance benefits. Additionally, older releases will no longer be supported when they reach end-of-life.

March 20, 2023
Node.js agent v9.13.0

Notes

  • Updated http instrumentation to no longer remove the x-new-relic-disable-dt header when using AWS SDK v3. This was done to prevent the "The request signature we calculated does not match the signature you provided. Check your key and signing method." error from AWS SDK.

  • Added an API method setUserID to provide an ability to associate a unique identifier with a transaction event, transaction trace and errors within transaction. The attribute will be enduser.id.

  • Added default configuration for security agent.

  • New Relic recommends that you upgrade the agent regularly to ensure that you're getting the latest features and performance benefits. Additionally, older releases will no longer be supported when they reach end-of-life.
