Integration with Datadog
To connect to Datadog, you will need to generate both an API key and an application key.
Generate an API key
Log in to your Datadog account.
Navigate to the API Keys section under Integrations > APIs or visit
Datadog API Settings
Click the 'Create API key' button and give it a name.
Copy the generated API key; you will need it to configure the connection in Cased.
Generate an app key:
In the same API Keys section, scroll down to the Application Keys.
Click the 'Create Application Key' button.
Provide a name for the application key and select the desired user.
Copy the generated Application key; you will need it as well.
Optional: scopes for the API key
Optionally, you can set API key scopes in Datadog that limit the key's abilities.
Somewhat confusingly, these scopes don't grant new permissions, but rather restrict default ones. That is, when a key is created, it begins with all scopes unless you add scopes.
We recommend not scoping the metrics so Cased can do its best and get the most data for you. For example, leave these (and all others) unchecked:
Datadog App Key Scopes
Save the keys
Please enter both the API key and the application key in the appropriate fields in our app to complete the connection to Datadog.
