I was looking at how to get deployment markers for my applications in releases. There all dockerised and were using the https://docs.newrelic.com/docs/agents/java-agent/configuration/java-agent-config-file-template and replacing the license key and the app_name when we build our dockers.
So then I look at how to place the markers:
And I think I have all this information already semi in the yml file.
Why can’t I set the attribute reversion: 5.3.0 so that on boot up the agent can place a marker on the deployment. This would make rolling back also super easy and trackable.
