New Relic in partnership with Postman announced a two-way integration to empower developers to monitor the functionality and performance of their APIs.

With the new integration, API developers and DevOps engineers can send Postman API and infrastructure metrics to New Relic, giving teams instant observability into critical metrics such as latency, request counts, and error rates. API developers can also use the two-way integration to receive API health data along with related application telemetry from New Relic in the Postman API Platform. New Relic customers can get started for free and use the API monitoring feature without any additional licenses, as integrations are included with the all-in-one New Relic observability platform with simple and predictable usage-based pricing

As more organizations take an API-first approach to building applications, monitoring is essential to address poor API performance, outages, and anomalies. The practice of API observability has historically been difficult due to team, data, and tool silos. First, API developers have been decoupled from DevOps and SRE teams. Second, API telemetry data for different environments and databases have been stored and managed in disparate telemetry systems. Third, API developers have used point solutions or in-house debugging tools instead of unified observability experiences in which all engineers come together around data. With this launch, Postman joins New Relic’s largest open ecosystem of quickstarts and partner integrations to help address this gap. Beyond simply ingesting data into New Relic, the Postman quickstart provides engineers with a curated, customizable dashboard view of key API and infrastructure metrics.

“Making API observability data visible to the teams responsible for development is crucial for maintaining quality during rapid iteration cycles,” said Postman Co-founder Abhijit Kane. “Historically, monitoring and infrastructure metrics have lived downstream from API development teams, but with the New Relic integration, teams can check real-time performance, work more quickly to correct errors, and ensure increased quality of their APIs.”

“As more organizations rely on APIs to deliver great user experiences, monitoring the health and performance of their APIs is a crucial part of an organization’s observability strategy,” said Peter Pezaris, New Relic SVP, Strategy and User Experience.

“This partnership with New Relic capitalizes on our mission to extend the value of Postman by working alongside forward-thinking companies that are critical to the API ecosystem ...” said Postman Head of Partnerships Smit Patel.

Features and benefits of the integration include:

- Unified visibility: View API metrics (response time, errors, failed test, etc.) alongside application and infrastructure in one unified and customizable dashboard.

- Alerting: Leverage New Relic’s advanced alerting capabilities such as self-adjusting thresholds, anomaly detection, and outlier detection to identify and flag poor performance.

- Correlate: Debug performance issues by comparing API’s performance (e.g., latency metrics) and functionality (e.g., response correctness) with full stack metrics (CPU, RAM usage, and network stats) in context.

- Easy access: Existing New Relic customers with full platform access can set up the integration in minutes for no additional fees. New users can get started for free without a credit card. The integration is available to all Postman customers including free-tier users.

The Postman quickstart is generally available across all regions as part of the New Relic platform — an all-in-one observability platform with a secure telemetry cloud, powerful full-stack analysis tools and predictable consumption pricing instead of disjointed SKU bundles.
