  2. Login to your account
  3. Go to <your user name> -> Api Keys and copy license value for key with access to write data
  4. Go to GraphQL configuration and update it with:

    otlp: {
    url: ""
    headers: [
    key: "api-key"

    ) {
    query: Query
  5. Set the api key you've copied before to the environment variable named NEWRELIC_API_KEY and start tailcall with updated config
