The Azure Native New Relic Service is a cloud native deep integration experience for Azure and New Relic’s joint customers. Using this experience, you can easily provision, manage, and tightly integrate the New Relic service on Azure. This service allows you to monitor Azure resources and diagnose possible issues by sending logs and metrics to your New Relic .

With this partnership we are looking to further enhance the user experience by introducing the following capabilities that will help you monitor your Azure resources with ease.

  1. Multi-subscription monitoring using a single New Relic resource
  2. Connected New Relic Resources experience in Azure portal 
  3. Suggest a feature in Azure resource overview blade

Multi-subscription monitoring using a single New Relic resource

With this capability, you can now monitor all your subscriptions through a single New Relic resource. This simplifies your experience as you do not have to setup a New Relic resource in every subscription that you intend to monitor.

To use this feature, browse to your Azure Native New Relic resource and select Monitored Subscriptions on the left navigation blade under the New Relic account config section.

The subscription where this resource is present is monitored by default. Click on the Add subscriptions button to add more subscriptions that you would like to monitor. You will be able to view the subscriptions where you are listed as the owner.

Note - If you have existing New Relic resources which are linked to the account for monitoring, this could lead to duplication of logs which could result in added charges. Ensure to delete redundant New Relic resources which are already linked to the account. You can view the list of connected resources (covered in the next section) and delete the redundant resources. It is recommended to consolidate subscriptions into the same New Relic resource where possible.

Select the subscriptions from the context blade and click on Add to include the chosen subscriptions to be monitored through the New Relic resource.

The tag rules and logs that you have defined for the New Relic resource will be applied to all the subscriptions that you have selected to be monitored. If you would like to reconfigure the tag rules, you can follow the steps described here.

Now you can browse to the Monitored Resources blade in your New Relic resource and select the subscription for which you would like to check the status of the logs and metrics for the resources being sent to the New Relic resource. You can filter by the subscription for which you would like to list all the monitored resources.

Similarly, the agent management experience for App Services and Virtual Machines can span different subscriptions. In the example below, you can view the App Services agent management experience for the different subscriptions which you have selected.

For more information about the following capabilities, you can refer to the following articles Monitor Virtual Machines using the New Relic agent and Monitor App Services using the New Relic agent.  

If you would like to stop monitoring the resources in a particular subscription at any time you can browse to the Monitored Subscriptions blade, select the subscription for which you would like to stop monitoring, and then select Remove subscription. The subscription where the New Relic resource has been created cannot be removed.

Connected New Relic Resources experience in Azure portal

Customers can setup New Relic resources from the Azure portal across multiple subscriptions through the Azure Native New Relic Service. While customers can view a unified bill across the resources which have been created, there is still a need to have a consolidated view of all the Azure resources which have been created through the Azure Native New Relic Service. This experience will help in easy management of the Azure resources in a single view instead of switching across multiple resources.

Considering this, we are happy to announce the Connected New Relic Resources blade within your Azure Native New Relic resource.

This new experience will be made available for all the Azure Native New Relic resources within the Azure portal. This will cover all the New Relic resources which are created across Azure subscriptions or from the New Relic portal.

With this experience, you can switch to your New Relic resource deployment experience within the New Relic portal by selecting the links present in the column New Relic Account ID. Similarly, you can also switch between multiple New Relic resources across Azure subscriptions by using the links present in the Azure Resource column. You would be able to access the other resources only if you have the owner or contributor rights to manage the resource.

Suggest a feature

We are always looking for ways to improve our product experience. We would love to hear your suggestions for new features or enhancements you would like to see. To suggest a new feature, you can click on Suggest a Feature in your New Relic resource’s overview blade. This redirects to the Developer community forum where you can also view other feature suggestions from other customers, and you can also upvote other posts and comment on them.
