What is Datadog?

Datadog is a monitoring service for cloud-scale applications, bringing together data from servers, databases, tools, and services to present a unified view of an entire stack.

How It Works

Datadog triggers user defined alerts by monitoring services and applications.
  • When a monitor alert is triggered (ALERT_TRANSITION === "Triggered") in Datadog, an alert is created in PagerTree automatically.
  • When a monitor alert is resolved (ALERT_TRANSITION === "Recovered") in Datadog, the alert is resolved in PagerTree automatically.

Integration Walkthrough

In this integration tutorial we will show you how to send alerts from Datadog into PagerTree. The estimated time for this integration is 5 minutes. We assume that you already have a PagerTree and Datadog account setup.

In PagerTree

  1. 1.
    Create the integration by clicking the Datadog logo.

In Datadog

Create the Integration

Attach the Integration to a Monitor

Its necessary the integration be attached to a monitor. The monitor will create an alert that is sent to PagerTree. In this example we actually create a new monitor, but you could just as easily attach it to an existing monitor.
  1. 1.
    Click Menu -> Monitors -> New Monitor.
    Navigate to new monitor
  2. 2.
    Click the appropriate monitor type for your scenario (e.g. “Host”).
    Select the host monitor type.
  3. 3.
    Enter in appropriate monitor values for your situation.
    1. 1.
      Under the “Notify your team” section
      1. 1.
        Select the Webhook Integration you just created (e.g. @webhook-pt_retail_team_integration)
        Notify PagerTree when monitor in Datadog fails.
  4. 4.
    Click “Save”.

You have successfully completed the Datadog Integration.
