Need to create alert for AWS custom cloudwatch metric

One of my developers has created a bunch of AWS custom cloudwatch metrics (monitoring the queue sizes/latency for one of our apps).

I’d like to create an alert for these metrics in New Relic. Is that possible, and if so how do I do that?

Hi there @d6f0b8210dc1844a865d -

Yes! You should be able to do that. You will likely need to set up a NRQL alert to query for the condition in the metrics and alert if the conditions are met. There is more documentation about NRQL alerts here:

https://docs.newrelic.com/docs/alerts-applied-intelligence/new-relic-alerts/alert-conditions/create-nrql-alert-conditions

Let me know if that does not get you pointed in the right direction!
