I was working through the JSON portion of the New Relic Alert email (which we consume for a third-party tool). While I was scripting the processing of the JSON I noticed that it’s structure had changed on Sept. 5 of this year.
I have spent some time wandering around the documentation on your site and can not find a dev calendar, change documents, or something similar. I am new to New Relic in general so maybe I am just missing it.
My question is: Does New Relic control the structure of the JSON or does it just come across like a hash would, in whatever order?
I have only seen two variation on the structure so I am assuming at this point that New Relic controls this but I would like validation of that so that my automation does not break on changes to the structure in the future. I can create this to handle that but it would take more coding on my part and could introduce other problems during development.
Thanks for any thoughts or information on this.
