Level up your security skillset with New Relic
Not every developer is a security expert, but use these tips to improve your skills In today’s digital age, security is a major concern for individuals and organizations alike. With the increasing number of cyber-attacks and data breaches, it’s crucial for developers to have a thorough understanding of security best practices. The security of an application is of the utmost importance, as it can directly impact the safety and privacy of users’ data.
Updated Snyk Webhook Integration with New Relic
In a recent post I wrote about the ability to send all your application security vulnerabilities found by Snyk directly to your New Relic observability platform. Now, New Relic made it even easier to achieve that by providing a dedicated security ingest processor that ‘understands’ the payload from a Snyk webhook. All the details on how to get started, create and configure a Snyk webhook to send into your New Relic account is provided in this docs page: https://docs.
How to send Snyk vulnerability data to the New Relic observability platform
Security and observability data go hand in hand when it comes to application health. If you can put those two sources of data behind a single pane of glass you can make your life a lot easier. By leveraging the different options that the Snyk platform provides, you can send all your application security vulnerabilities found by Snyk directly to your New Relic observability platform. Let’s see how! Prerequisites Here are all the necessary links to get started:
Snyk Integration Capabilities with WebHooks - some examples
TL;DR Integrate your Snyk application security platform by leveraging webhooks into various other external systems such as Microsoft Teams, Azure DevOps Boards, New Relic, DataDog and Splunk. Here are all the necessary links to get started: GitHub Repository: https://github.com/harrykimpel/snyk-webhook-subscription Microsoft Teams: https://github.com/harrykimpel/snyk-webhook-subscription/blob/main/azure-function-microsoft-teams.cs Azure DevOps Boards: https://github.com/harrykimpel/snyk-webhook-subscription/blob/main/azure-function-azure-boards.cs New Relic: https://github.com/harrykimpel/snyk-webhook-subscription/blob/main/azure-function-newrelic.cs DataDog: https://github.com/harrykimpel/snyk-webhook-subscription/blob/main/azure-function-datadog.cs Splunk: https://github.com/harrykimpel/snyk-webhook-subscription/blob/main/azure-function-splunk.cs Background In the past few weeks I have been quite busy in my spare time to think about new ways of integrating the Snyk application security platform with various other systems and especially also observability platforms.
How to send Snyk Vulnerability data to New Relic using Prometheus?
TL;DR By leveraging a Prometheus Exporter you can send all your application security vulnerabilities from Snyk into New Relic. Here are all the necessary links to get started: Snyk Exporter: https://github.com/lunarway/snyk_exporter New Relic Kubernetes integration: https://docs.newrelic.com/docs/infrastructure/prometheus-integrations/get-started/send-prometheus-metric-data-new-relic/ New Relic Instant Observability Quickstart: https://newrelic.com/instant-observability/?search=snyk Update (2022-09-22) The option that I am describing here is just one way to achieve this. There might even be a more straight forward option available that I started to describe in a more recent post.
New Relic Microsoft Teams App
I am working with a global enterprise on rolling out the entire New Relic platform capabilities across their organization. The technical teams are happy and very confident in using the New Relic One platform. They have pretty much all the information they need and get all the way from high-level overviews of their entire stack down to code-level views. However, for management and executive leadership it is hard to get an overview themselves.
How-To: Set-up New Relic to observe Dapr and it's applications

Fun Project: Amazon Alexa Skill for New Relic Insights
As a fun project in some spare time, I recently worked on a way to tell Amazon Alexa how to talk to New Relic Insights and retrieve some high-level information about an account. I was just curious on what it would take to get Alexa to access our Insights API with a voice command and Alexa to speak out some result of this query. You typically start by creating an Amazon developer account and register a new Alexa Skill with the Alexa Skills Kit.
APM with Microsoft .NET Core on Azure
One of the things I am very interested in is the .NET stack and especially the .NET Core platform. In this blog post I want to briefly highlight what it takes to get a sample .NET Core application up and running on Azure and how to use New Relic’s Application Performance Monitoring (APM) to monitor this application. Please note: while I am writing this, the latest version of .NET Core SDK is .
New Relic's APM demo on IBM BlueMix
Last week, we had the chance to present at a local Cloud Foundry Meetup in Stuttgart/Germany and the key topic was around IBM BlueMix (BM). My idea was to show and demo something around New Relic and BM. Due to my ignorance, I actually did not know that IBM BM is also based upon the open source platform Cloud Foundry (CF). Interestingly enough, I was involved in quite some CF engagements in my previous life and so I knew what it would take to get a so-called Spring-Boot type application (https://projects.
