New Relic Golden Signal
To create a Service, you must add the URL from at least one Golden Signal monitor to your Service definition. Gremlin recommends a combination of 3 to 5 monitors for a well-rounded view of your Service’s health. Once you have selected a Service type, defined its fingerprint, and selected a process, you'll be able to start adding Golden Signal monitors to your Service.
Before adding a New Relic Golden Signal monitor to your Service, first authenticate the Golden Signal monitoring tool at the team level. See New Relic Team Integration for instructions.
Adding a New Relic Golden Signal Monitor
The New Relic API URL must point to a previous or current incident, alert violation, or application ID relevant to the Service you are creating. See Application and reporting health status in the New Relic documentation for more information.

To add a New Relic Golden Signal:
Select New Relic from the Integrations drop-down and click Add.
If the New Relic integration has been authenticated in Team Settings, you will only see the New Relic API URL box — in this case, continue to the next step. If the API key and application key have not been defined for the team, you'll also see the Authentication and Headers section — in this case, you'll need to set up the New Relic team integration first.
In the New Relic web app, get the incident, alert violation, or application ID that you want to use.
Back in the Gremlin web app, update the New Relic API URL with the ID from New Relic.
Click Test Golden Signal.
