Apollo New Relic Extension Plus
Creates newrelic transaction for graphql queries.
This is a forked repository of apollo-newrelic-extension. We decided to create this plus package as the previous package uses operationName as the transactionName which is an optional attribute in a graphql request and can be null at times.
This package always utilizes graphql query name as the name of the transaction which can never be null
Also newrelic libraries requires it to be imported as first thing in the project therefore we decided to pass it as parameter to the apollo-newrelic-extension-plus extension.


  • Run npm install --save apollo-newrelic-extension-plus
  • Import newrelic on top of app & pass it as parameter
  • Enable tracing in your ApolloServer configuration by setting tracing: true


const newrelic = require('newrelic')
const express = require('express')
const { ApolloServer } = require('apollo-server-express')
const ApolloNewrelicExtensionPlus = require('apollo-newrelic-extension-plus')
const typeDefs = require('./typeDefs')
const resolvers = require('./resolvers')

const server = new ApolloServer({
  // ...additional configuration...

  // Thunk for creating the newrelic extension
  extensions: [() => new ApolloNewrelicExtensionPlus(newrelic)],

  // Be sure to enable tracing
  tracing: true

const app = express()
server.applyMiddleware({ app })

app.listen(3000, () => console.log('Server listening on port 3000'))
