Integrate with Datadog

Permissions

Only users with ROLE_MANAGER permissions can perform these actions.

Datadog aggregates metrics and events (from integrations such as Lightrun), provides a quick search, filter, and analysis tool to support open-ended exploration of your dynamic logs and data, and provides customizable dashboards for data visualization.

Prerequisites

Install and configure Datadog and copy the API key from your Datadog account. For additional assistance, refer to their troubleshooting guide as well.

For Lightrun to send observability data to your integrations, ensure:

  • The application has a running agent attached to it
  • Your action Target is set to Plugin.

Connect to and disconnect from Datadog

  1. Open a browser and log in to your Lightrun account.

  2. In the menu on the left, click Integrations.

    The page loads with all available integrations:

    Integrations Page -third

  3. From the Integrations page, click Connect from the Datadog card.

    The Datadog Integration window pops up:

    Datadog Configuration -third

  4. Paste the API key you copied from your Datadog account.

  5. Click Connect and wait for the toast message approving the connection.

  6. To disable the configuration, click Disconnect.
