Monitoring java deployments with REST API



We are working on setting up deployment markers for our JAVA applications. There are two pages in the documentation regarding this, one of them mentions that you need to add an entry to newrelic.yml (api_host: and the other does not. I’m wondering, when you set up deployment markers with the REST API in Explorer, do you need this yml update?


Hi, @kdisch: I think the api_host config setting only applies if you are using the Java agent to send deployments to New Relic. If you call the REST API directly, the newrelic.yml file is not used.
