There are two aspects to the Datadog integration, forwarding event counts and change config changes. The goal of this integration is to allow monitoring of Statsig usage for billing purposes and alerts for config changes. We also offer a Datadog trigger integration.
Connecting to Datadog
- To create a Datadog API key, navigate to Organization Settings > API Keys. If you have the permission to create API keys, click New Key.
- Paste the API key in the text box at the top of the integration dialog, then hit "Confirm".
If the above is out of date, refer to the Datadog documentation on how to setup API Keys
This integration will forward the number of Statsig SDK Events reported to Datadog. This is meant for monitoring your project's Statsig usage. This integration also has the option to allow non-production events to be forwarded to Datadog.
Statsig events are mapped to Datadog metrics with listed tags as follows:
statsig::gate_exposure -> statsig.check_gate.count
statsig::config_exposure -> statsig.get_config.count
statsig::experiment_exposure -> statsig.get_experiment.count
statsig::layer_exposure -> statsig.get_layer.count
statsig::holdout_exposure -> statsig.get_holdout.count
Example of check_gate metric
This integration will send Datadog Events of your choice when your project's settings change. For instance, we will send an Event when someone edits a Feature Gate.
These events can be found in the Datadog Events Explorer.
