AWS CloudFormation gives you templates to describe, configure, and provision all of the AWS resources in your environment at once. The Datadog-AWS CloudFormation Resources allow you to interact with the supported Datadog resources. To get started:
In your terminal, use the aws-cli tool to register a Datadog resource.
aws cloudformation register-type \ --region "<REGION>" \ --type RESOURCE \ --type-name "<DATADOG_RESOURCE_NAME>" \ --schema-handler-package "<LINK_TO_S3>"
View the version of the newly registered resource by running the following in your terminal:
aws cloudformation list-type-versions \ --region "<REGION>" \ --type RESOURCE \ --type-name "<DATADOG_RESOURCE_NAME>"
Set this newly registered version as the
default by running the following in your terminal:
aws cloudformation set-type-default-version \ --region "<REGION>" \ --type RESOURCE \ --version-id <VERSION_ID> \ --type-name "<DATADOG_RESOURCE_NAME>"
With the following required placeholders:
<REGION>: Your AWS region.
<DATADOG_RESOURCE_NAME>: The name of the resource to register, refer to the table below to see the Datadog supported resources.
<LINK_TO_S3>: S3 link to the resource.
VERSION_ID: The underlying version of the resource as returned by the command in step
In your AWS account, create your AWS stack that includes any of the registered Datadog resources.
