Datadog Monitor Alerts

The built-in Datadog Monitor trigger initiates flows when it receives a request from a webhook in Datadog.

Add the trigger to the canvas

  1. Go to the Triggers tab in the palette, expand the App Triggers section, and drag the trigger onto the canvas.
  2. Double-click the trigger (or click the pencil icon).
  3. Set the authenticating user, and then copy the URL — you'll use this to set up the webhook in Datadog.

  1. Click the Flood Control tab to edit the trigger's default flood control settings. For more information about these settings, see Trigger Flood Control.
  2. Connect the steps you want to run when xMatters receives a request to that URL.

You're now ready to configure Datadog to target the trigger.

Configure Datadog to send requests to the trigger URL

To have Datadog send alerts to the flow trigger, you need to configure a webhook and set it to use the trigger URL. You also need to create an event monitor to alert the webhook when certain types of events exceed a specified threshold.
