Datadog Integration Guide

Datadog integration with AlertOps aggregates all metrics and events in one place so they can be analyzed by development and operations teams. Integrate AlertOps’ alert management platform with Datadog to receive and respond to critical alerts through email, SMS, push notification, and phone alerts. AlertOps ensures that alerts received from Datadog always reach the correct, available team member by utilizing escalation policies and on-call schedules.

AlertOps Configuration

Step 1: From the main menu, hover over Integrations and then select Inbound Integrations from the sub menu.

Step 2: Select the Add Web API Integration button.

Step 3: You should now be on the Web API Integration Detail page. Select Datadog from the Integration Template dropdown menu.

Step 4: Enter a name for the Integration. Select a message rule to determine the integration's escalation policy. And, enter the names of recipient user(s) and/or group(s). Click Save Changes. Then, click Copy URL to copy the URL endpoint to be used in the Datadog configuration.

Datadog Configuration

Step 1: Configure webhook in Datadog. 

Sample Data:

{
"alert_id": "$ALERT_ID",
"title": "$EVENT_TITLE",
"alert_transition":"$ALERT_TRANSITION",
"link":"$LINK",
"event_msg":"$EVENT_MSG"
}

Alert Triggering Information

AlertOps will automatically create an incident when a new alert is received from Datadog with an IncidentStatus status of “Triggered.”

If an alert with status “Triggered” matches an existing Open Alert, AlertOps will recognize the new alert as a duplicate and ignore the alert. The alert will be recorded in the Inbound Messages table as “Mapped Appended.”

AlertOps will automatically close the same incident when an alert with an IncidentStatus status “Recovered” is received.
