Getting started with New Relic

Thanks for deploying! Here's a list of key resources to help answer any initial questions you may have, plus useful tips, reference material, and everything else you need to get the most out of your New Relic experience.


Offering a flexible-learning approach to developing a deeper understanding of our products, New Relic University lets both teams and individuals choose self-service courses, webinars, and/or instructor-led classes. We recommend you start with the following webinars:



Our comprehensive documentation provides instruction for all New Relic products. Docs are just as useful for New Relic novices as they are for long-time New Relic users who want to learn how to use the latest features.

Online Technical Community

Whether you’re looking for what’s new, troubleshooting tips, the latest and greatest product information, or helpful user-generated content, the New Relic Explorers Hub is for you. Check out our Onboarding Videos, Level Ups, Tech Talks, and Coffee Chats.

Global Technical Support

If you need help, we suggest you visit our Documentation and/or Online Technical Community first, as many questions and issues are already documented. If you cannot find your answer there, your next step is to visit our support center where you will find an overview of the most frequently viewed topics.  Paid subscribers can submit a support ticket, which will be addressed by our 24X7 “follow-the-sun” support team within the time frame specified for your support level.

Product Updates and Newsletter

Each quarter, we publish our What's New, a summary of our latest software features and updates. New Relic’s monthly product newsletter will keep you current on releases, fresh content, upcoming events, and more. To receive these emails, make sure you are subscribed to New Relic emails.
