Pivotal Cloud Foundry v1.9

New Relic

Page last updated:

New Relic collects analytics about application and client-side performance.


There are two ways to configure New Relic for the PHP buildpack.

With a CF service

Bind a NewRelic service to the app. The buildpack will automatically detect and set up NewRelic.

This should work as long as the VCAP_SERVICES environment variable contains a service called newrelic. That service has a key called credentials and that, in turn, has a key called licenseKey.

WARNING: This will not work with user provided services.

With a License Key

If you already have a New Relic account, use this method.

  1. Go to the New Relic website to find your license key.
  2. Set the value of the environment variable NEWRELIC_LICENSE to your NewRelic license key, either through the manifest.yml file or with the cf set-env command.
