Datadog

Create Datadog events from Rollbar

Rollbar users can syndicate exceptions, errors and code deployments as 'Events' in Datadog.

Setup

Configuration is per-project in Rollbar.

  1. In Datadog, go to Integrations → APIs and copy your API key
  2. In Rollbar, navigate to the project you want to integrate with Datadog
  3. Click Settings → Notifications → Datadog
  4. Enter your Datadog API key
  5. Click Enable Datadog Integration

Congrats! Datadog is now integrated with Rollbar. Once integrated, the default notification 'Rules' will be activated and sent to your Datadog account.

Customizing Datadog Notification Rules

The Datadog event created by each notification rule can be customized using notification variables and filters. Additionally, you may specify a different API key for each notification rule if you wish to send the events to a different Datadog account.

Automatic Event Priority

When creating an event in Datadog from Rollbar, you can explicitly set the priority (low, normal) or allow Rollbar to automatically determine the priority. Here's how priority is automatically determined:

Rollbar Notification RuleDatadog Priority

Automatic Event Type
