Can't setup a lambda to ship cloudwatch metrics to newrelic account created from heroku addon


Hi, I already have a newrelic account that was created from heroku by installing NR addon.
Now we want to have cloudwatch metrics from our AWS lambdas in newrelic. I tried following the docs: running a python script that creates a lambda that ships all cloudwatch entries to NR but I can’t get it to work. First of all I’m missing the newrelic api_key, where should I get it? can’t find it in newrelic admin panel.

Is this something I can achieve or do I need another account for bringing cloudwatch entries in newrelic?


Hi @tomas.dowling - To insert data into Insights, you will need to create an Insert key.


Hey @tomas.dowling - did the Insert Key that Stefan suggested work for you?
