#process_request_metadata(request_metadata) ⇒ Object

Process obfuscated String indentifying a calling application and transaction that is also running a New Relic agent and save information in current transaction for inclusion in a trace. The String is generated by get_request_metadata on the calling application.

Parameters:

  • request_metadata (String)

    received obfuscated request metadata
