Before you begin the release process, you need your marketplace application approved by Datadog, access to the marketplace repo, a built integration, and you need to set up Datadog’s Developer toolkit, ddev.
Making a release requires the maintainer to update two files in the same pull request (PR).
Update the CHANGELOG.md file This file can be automatically updated by ddev using the following command:
ddev release changelog <INTEGRATION_NAME> <VERSION>
The command lists all merged PRs since the last release and creates a changelog entry based on the pull request labels. For changelog types, adhere to those defined by Keep a Changelog.
Every Agent-based integration always has the same hierarchy of files, and the one and only source of truth for an integration version is always the
datadog_checks/<INTEGRATION>/about.py file. For example, see the Aqua check.
Updating the file is a manual process.
Push these changes to a branch of the Datadog Marketplace repo and create a PR. When the PR is merged to master, a release is triggered with the specified version number in the
about.py file. A few moments later (~15min), the new release gets pushed to Datadog’s repository located here, and the integration can be installed using the command:
sudo -u dd-agent datadog-agent integration install --third-party datadog-<INTEGRATION_NAME>==X.Y.Z
