Feature Idea: Grails 3 support

Feature Request:
Please incorporate Grails 3.x support in the java agent. The current support for Grails 1.x and 2.x is good but there are a number of customers that would like 3.x support.

There is an issue with screenshots with what a grails 3.x app looks like for reference.
grails-core Issue # 9886

Grails 3 is a framework that utilizes Spring Boot and Groovy.

We take feature ideas seriously and our product managers review every one when plotting their roadmaps. However, there is no guarantee this feature will be implemented. This post ensures the idea is put on the table and discussed though. So please vote and share your extra details with our team.


We are facing this exact problem at Bluestem Brands. I will link support tickets we have logged to try and resolve this.

Hey @colin.harrington and @Christian.Oestreich

As you mentioned, we don’t currently have support for Grails 3.0 and we appreciate you both voicing your interest! I’ve made sure to open 2 new feature requests on your behalves and forwarded these requests to our product management team.

While we don’t have any guarantee or an ETA on Grails 3.0 support, your +1s help prioritize our future enhancements.

Thanks again for helping us improve!

Thanks @netheroth , that would be great.

FYI, there is a Grails plugin to add Newrelic support to Grails3 app:

So complete support from NewRelic would be fantastic.

Hey guys, any news on Grails 3 support?

Grails 2.x was the peak of it’s popularity. Supporting Spring-boot is the better solution as Grails 3 has had a severe drop in community, jobs and uptake (see linkedin.com/pulse/how-spring-boot-killed-grails-owen-rubel )

Are you suggesting just ignore big community just because of google trends? There are a lof of companies who are using Grails 3, like Target for example.

I don’t believe I quoted Google trends. But if you look at all market trends, Grails statistics have fallen to 2009 levels of popularity AND USAGE. While there are some companies that do use Grails, supporting Springboot is more than enough to supply that level of support through to child projects like Grails. But Springboot has far more momentum and support and it would be better for them to support that project and hence support Grails through that.

+1 to Grails 3 support
