(unofficial) NewRelic Synthetics CLI

Project description

image0 image1

NeReS is a cli tool to manage NewRelic Synthetics monitors with a Synthetics Lite account (Pro should work too). The tool emulates the actions of a user in the browser and doesn’t use the Synthetics API since that’s only available to the Pro accounts.

With this tool you can:

  • List all your monitors, including their success rate, locations, notifications etc.

  • Create, update and delete monitors

  • List available locations for monitor installation and

  • everything else available though the Web console.



$ pip install neres


  1. You will need a newrelic account

  2. Start by using the login command

  3. Read the docs or run –help


Login to NewRelic

Login to NewRelic with the login command:

$ neres login

If you have multiple NewRelic accounts you can have different environments:

$ neres --environment work login

List Accounts

You can list all the accounts connected to the email you used to connect using:

$ neres list-accounts

By default neres will act on the first account listed. This command will help you select a different account by using the ID of the account in combination with the –account option or by setting NERES_ACCOUNT in your environment.

List Locations

Lists available monitor locations:

$ neres list-locations

List Monitors

Lists available monitors:

$ neres list-monitors

You can only list IDs of the monitors:

$ neres list-monitors --ids-only

Or get the raw JSON output from NewRelic:

$ neres list-monitors --raw

Add Monitor

Adds a Synthetics monitor:

$ neres add-monitor monitorName

Use –help to get a full list of supported options for the command. All options are optional.

Open Monitor

Save the output into a file, edit and use in combination with the update-from-statefile command to update multiple monitors at once.
