Demo video: Configure an inbound integration with Datadog ►

If you use Datadog to monitor your environment, you want to integrate it with Moogsoft.

By routing your data to Moogsoft, you will enjoy richer context through event correlation, quicker anomaly detection with dynamic thresholding and deduplication. The Moogsoft Incidents can then be sent to Datadog with greater context to accelerate the resolution.

In this video, you will learn to

  • create an API key and Application key in Datadog

  • Create user credentials in Moogsoft

  • Configure data types and filters in the Datadog integration

Datadog integration is available here.

Provide a meaningful name.

If you already have credentials with Datadog, select it from the pulldown. Otherwise, to add a new credential, we need to grab an API key and an Application key from Datadog.

5_Datadog.png

Create a new API key...

6_Datadog.png
7_Datadog.png

Go back to Moogsoft, and paste it here.

8_Datadog.png

Also, create an Application key...

9_Datadog.png

Make sure you can tell what this is used for...

10_Datadog.png

Copy the key, not the Key ID.

11_Datadog.png

Paste it here.

12_Datadog.png

Great! Now we have a valid credential to select.

By default, we will be collecting both events and metrics from Datadog, but that’s configurable.

14_Datadog.png

Best practice here is to filter out low priority data.

15_Datadog.png

Ingesting the data that is most important to you helps to avoid any Datadog rate-limiting. The sources, tags, metric names, hosts, and tag filters are pulled from Datadog automatically. This increases the context when issues occur, letting you focus on the root cause analysis and fix!

Now let’s test. Success! You got a preview of what events and metrics you'd expect to see with the parameters given.

17_Datadog.png

Here’s the request for Datadog Events, which includes the Datadog endpoint and the query parameters we set up.

18_Datadog.png

And we got a response back.

19_Datadog.png

And this is the request for Datadog Metrics, also showing the endpoint.

20_Datadog.png

And the response back confirms the filters that we set up.
