Continuous Integration Visibility

CI Visibility is not available in the selected site () at this time.

This page is about bringing your continuous integration (CI) metrics and data into Datadog dashboards. If you want to run Continuous Testing tests in your CI pipelines, see the Continuous Testing and CI/CD section.


Datadog Continuous Integration (CI) Visibility unifies information about CI test and pipeline results in addition to data about CI performance, trends, and reliability. CI Visibility brings CI metrics and data into Datadog dashboards and notebooks so you can communicate the health of your CI environment and focus your efforts in improving your team’s ability to deliver quality code every time.

CI Visibility enables developers to identify the reasons behind a test or pipeline failure, monitor trends in test suite execution times, and see the effect that a given commit has on the pipeline. Further, it also provides build engineers with visibility into cross-organization CI health and trends in pipeline performance over time.

Improve test reliability and create traces

CI Visibility helps you troubleshoot test failures and broken builds by connecting the most important development outages to the commits that caused them. You can instrument your tests and generate traces from your testing frameworks as they execute in CI.

Increase efficiency through seamless integrations

Datadog integrates with the following CI providers to gather pipeline metrics which track the performance and results from the moment a commit enters the pipeline until it is ready to be deployed. Use the data aggregated over time to track trends in the performance of tests and builds, and identify what is most important to fix.

You can use the datadog-ci CLI to trace commands in your pipelines, as well as the custom tags and metrics commands to add user-defined text and numerical tags in your pipeline traces.
