About the integration

Datadog is a metric monitoring service that helps DevOps teams discover, triage, and prioritize their observability data in real-time. Before you start, you should already have a Datadog account and your environment setup and running. If not, head over to Datadog to get things started. Once you're done, return to Sleuth so you can complete setup of the integration.

Setting up the integration

To add the Sleuth Datadog integration:

  • Click Integrations in the sidebar.

  • Click the Metric Trackers tab, then enable in the Datadog card.

  • Enter your Datadog API Key and Application Key in the corresponding fields. You need to create both of these separately. Generate API key here and generate an Application key here.

  • If your Datadog servers' are in the EU, enable the My Datadog servers are in the EU checkbox. Leave this unchecked if you are unsure.

  • Press Save.

The Datadog API Key and Application Key can be found under Integrations > API, as shown below. Or, you can click on the generate link, which will take you directly to the APIs page in your Datadog console, where you can then generate the keys Sleuth needs to complete the integration.

  • Once the Datadog integration is successful, you will see Datadog enabled displayed in the integration card (as shown below).

Configuring the integration

  • Click Add metric and select a Sleuth project that will collect the metrics Datadog generates. All projects within your organization will be displayed in the dropdown.

Integrations are made at the Sleuth organization level, and are available for all projects within that organization. Individual settings for an integration are made at the project level.

That's it! Sleuth will now start verifying your deploys health by tracking the values from your Datadog metric. Head over to the Dashboard to start seeing your data in action in the project and deploy health graphs.

Removing the integration

To dissolve the Datadog integration for the organization:

  1. Click on Integrations in the left sidebar, then on Metric Trackers.

  2. In the Datadog integration card, click disable.

The Datadog integration is disconnected and no longer available to any projects within that organization. Any project-level modifications you made to the Datadog integration will be lost.
