The Datadog extension for Visual Studio Code (VS Code) integrates with Datadog to accelerate your development.

The Datadog for VS Code extension

The Code Insights view keeps you informed about:

The Synthetic Tests feature allows you to:

  • Run Synthetic tests on your local environments
  • Set custom parameters without altering the original test definition
  • See test results locally in VS Code and in Datadog to access additional information
  • Test only what matters by executing relevant tests at the same time
  • Create a list of most frequently used Synthetic tests by linking them to your workspace

The View in VS Code feature provides a link from Datadog directly to your source files.


  • A Datadog account: The extension requires a Datadog account. If you’re new to Datadog, go to the Datadog website to learn more about Datadog’s observability tools and sign up for a free trial.


Install the Datadog Extension from the Visual Studio Marketplace.

Code Insights

The Code Insights tree displays insights generated by the Datadog platform that are relevant to your code-base. The insights are grouped into three categories: performance, reliability, and security.

The Code Insights view.

Code Insights include a detailed description for each issue, and links to:

  • The related source code location
  • The Datadog platform for additional information

You can dismiss individual insights and set filters to view the categories of insights that you are most interested to see.

Synthetic Tests

The Datadog extension enables you to run Synthetic HTTP tests and browser tests on local environments directly in the IDE. You can identify and address potential issues resulting from code changes before they are deployed into production and impact your end users.

Run Synthetic tests locally

  1. Select a Synthetic test to execute. You can search for specific tests by clicking the Search icon.
  2. Change the test’s configuration to convert the start URL and specify a localhost URL on the Settings page.
  3. Run the test.

If you haven’t set up Synthetic tests already, create a test in Datadog. For more information about running tests on a local environment, see Getting Started with API Tests, Getting Started with Browser Tests, and the Continuous Testing Tunnel documentation.


By default, only users with the Datadog Admin and Datadog Standard roles can create, edit, and delete Synthetic HTTP and browser tests. To get create, edit, and delete access to Synthetic HTTP and browser tests, upgrade your user to one of those two default roles.

If you are using the custom role feature, add your user to any custom role that includes synthetics_read and synthetics_write permissions.

View in VS Code

The View in VS Code feature provides a link from Datadog directly to your source files. Look for the button next to frames in stack traces displayed in the UI (for example, in Error Tracking):

To use this feature, first configure source code integration for your service.
