Feature Idea: Ability to ignore errors for a specific transaction from specific servers

Raised as incident #246586

On a particular app, we use a standard website URL as a loadbalancer healthcheck.

For a ‘warm standby’ set of DR web servers a call to particular page returns a 302 with an underlying System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException error of

Cannot open database “XXXXXXX” requested by the login. The login failed. Login failed for user ‘YYYYYYY’.

This is by design as the database is deliberately offline in this DR environment.

These are showing in New Relic as genuine errors…

There appears there is no way we can mask this error out for the combination of the request URL, response code, and originating host based on a name matching a given pattern without code change to specifically call the API to ignore the transaction under the given condition. I would like to be able to specify the rule in the newrelic.config.

Hi @newrelicadmin1 - Are your DR servers on the same account as your production servers or on a different account?

@stefan_garnham Same account.
