The Datadog modules enable you to post time-series data that can be graphed on Datadog’s dashboards or make a custom API call.

Getting Started with Datadog


  • A Datadog account

In order to use Datadog with Ibexa Connect, it is necessary to have a Datadog account. If you do not have one, you can create a Datadog account at


The module dialog fields that are displayed in bold (in the Ibexa Connect scenario, not in this documentation article) are mandatory!

Connecting Datadog to Ibexa Connect

To connect your Datadog account to Ibexa Connect you need to retrieve an API Key from your Datadog account.

  1. Log in to your Datadog account.

  2. In the menu on the left, open Integrations > APIs.

  3. Click the API Keys option and then copy the provided API Key (point the mouse over the rectangle in the Key column to unhide your API Key).


  4. Repeat the same for the Application Keys option to retrieve the Application Key.


  5. Go to Ibexa Connect and open the Datadog module's Create a connection dialog.

    Fill the module's fields as follows:

    Connection Type Select the Datadog Application option to get full access to Datadog API.
    Connection Name Enter the desired name for the connection.
    Domain Select your domain (US site or EU site).
    API Key Enter the API Key you have copied in step 3 (above).
    Application Key Enter the Application Key you have copied in step 4 (above).
  6. To the respective field and click the Continue button to establish the connection.

The connection has been established. You can proceed with setting up the module.


Post Timeseries Points

The module allows you to post time-series data that can be graphed on Datadog’s dashboards. The limit for compressed payloads is 3.2 megabytes (3200000), and 62 megabytes (62914560) for decompressed payloads.


Add time series you want to submit to Datadog.


Enter the name of the timeseries.


Select the type of the metric.


If the type of the metric is rate or count, define the corresponding interval.


Add points relating to a metric.

A JSON array of points. Each point is of the form: [[POSIX_timestamp, numeric_value], ...] Note: The timestamp should be in seconds, current. The numeric value format should be a float value. Current is defined as not more than 10 minutes in the future or more than 1 hour in the past.

  • Must contain at least 1 item(s).


Enter the name of the host that produced the metric.

Make an API Call

Allows you to perform a custom API call.


Enter a path relative to For example: /v1/org.

For the list of available endpoints, refer to the Datadog API Documentation.


Select the HTTP method you want to use:


to retrieve information for an entry.


to create a new entry.
