New Relic Insights is a real-time analytics platform that collects event and metric data from other New Relic products, and also third-party integrations. By connecting New Relic Insights with Runscope API monitoring, you can collect metrics from your API tests and transform them into actionable insights about your applications.

Connecting Your Accounts

We need two get two variables from New Relic to integrate it with Runscope: an Account ID, and Insert Key.

Getting a New Relic Account ID and Insert Key

Log in to your New Relic Insights account, and click on Manage Data on the left-hand side menu:

Then on the top bar, click on API keys:

Next, click on the "+" button next to Insert Keys:

In the next page you will find an Account ID, and Key. Copy these two values and we're going to use it in the next steps:

Here you have to provide two items from your New Relic account: the Account ID, and Insert Key. Paste the values that we just got in the previous step:

For the last step, make sure to enable the integration for any API test that you have that you wish to send the information back to New Relic Insights. You can toggle the integration on/off by opening an API Test, expanding the Environment Settings, and clicking on the Integrations tab on the left-hand menu:
