Integration with Datadog
To connect to Datadog, you will need to generate both an API key and an application key.
  1. 1.
    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.
  1. 2.
    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.
  1. 3.
    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:

    Save the keys to Cased
  • Please enter both the API key and the application key in the appropriate fields in our app to complete the connection to Datadog.
