alertsPolicyCreate -> Your account is not entitled to use this feature


I am trying to use terraform to setup my alerting on newrelic. It is the same terraform I have used in different terraform account but on this particular one I get the error:

Your account is not entitled to use this feature

when terraform tries to create an alertpolicy.

I am using the API Key and Admin API Key of the owner, exactly as in the other accounts where it is working. It is also strange that I can create the alert policy from the web interface manually. Is there something I should enable that I missed?

hi @oltretata

Can you let us know the account ID (or just share a link to the account)?

Yes, the account id is 2546091

Hey @oltretata - It looks like that account has a fully lite subscription - this does not allow access to the APIs & Alerts.

We have recently launched a new subscription model that includes a perpetual free tier with full access to the platform, so if that’s something you are interested in you can create a new account from the sign up page and it’ll automatically come with the new subscription model.
