Configuring Datadog

Datadog is fully integrated with Pingometer to allow you to push alerts to their platform, and we have worked together to make the integration seamless. To get started, you will first need to set up a Datadog account at https://datadoghq.com.

In order to activate the integration of Datadog within your Pingometer account, you will go to Alerting>Push Notifications then choose Datadog as the provider type when adding a new push notifications profile.

The following describes the fields shown when configuring Datadog within your Pingometer account:

  • Name: The reference name you desire to assign to your Datadog profile. It can assist you with organizing multiple provider profiles within your Pingometer account.
  • API key: This will be obtained from Datadog. Please review the Obtaining Datadog API Key section below for further documentation.
  • Application key: This will be obtained from Datadog. Please review the Obtaining Datadog Application Key section below for further documentation.
  • Metric name: This is the name of the metric you want attached to your new profile, this would be obtained once you've specifically created a metric in Datadog, please refer to the API/metric name section at http://docs.datadoghq.com/faq/

*Once you've configured your Datadog profile, you will need to assign the profile to a contact group located under Alerting>Contacts. The profile is assigned at the Push Notifications field within the contact group.
