Post returns 403 error

Hi All - Our site is returning a 403 (Forbidden) error when posting to

VM69:1 POST 403 (Forbidden)

This randomly started happening about a week ago. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi @jshields!

If you’re receiving a 403 error, it’s possible you could have a malfunctioning security webfilter that’s blocking the calls to New Relic from your internal network.

Can you confirm and let me know?

Hey there

I have been receiving that error as well. Multiple environments.

I can’t really see how its a webfilter as something is returning a 403 error. A webfilter would just block it as a 404 because you can’t reach the resource.

We are seeing this problem as well in our production environment. Started happening about a week ago.

VM6:1 POST 403 (Forbidden)

Quick follow-up to my previous post. Our production environment runs on Heroku and we use the New Relic APM add-on. @jshields and @roy.delima, are your applications running on Heroku as well?

We are running on Heroku with a Ruby on Rails stack.
