Scripted Pipeline

Two options exist for sending data with a custom event in a scripted pipeline.

Key Value Data Points

node {
    // assemble key value keyValues points
    def secrets = [
      [$class: 'KeyValue', key: 'eventType', value: 'test_deployment'],
      [$class: 'KeyValue', key: 'appId', value: '888']
    ]
    
    // call build step with key value keyValues points
    step([$class: 'NewRelicInsights', 
    credentialsId: '291ff5f2-a93f-4d5a-8e56-a43d61475fc7', 
    keyValues: secrets])
}

Groovy Map

node {
    // a simpler option for pipelines
    def json = [eventType: 'test_deployment', appId: '888']
    
    // call build step with map
    step([$class: 'NewRelicInsights', 
    credentialsId: '291ff5f2-a93f-4d5a-8e56-a43d61475fc7', 
    json: json])   
}

Insights only accepts key-value pairs, not map/object or array values. Only floats and strings are supported data types. See Insights Docs for more information.
