AWS AppSync

Overview

Amazon AppSync simplifies application development by letting you create a flexible API to securely access, manipulate, and combine data from one or more data sources.

Enable this integration to see all your AppSync metrics in Datadog.

Setup

Installation

If you haven’t already, set up the Amazon Web Services integration first.

Metric collection

  1. In the AWS integration page, ensure that AppSync is enabled under the Metric Collection tab.
  2. Install the Datadog - Amazon AppSync integration.

Log collection

Enable logging

Configure Amazon AppSync to send logs either to a S3 bucket or to CloudWatch.

Note: If you log to a S3 bucket, make sure that amazon_appsync is set as Target prefix.

Send logs to Datadog

  1. If you haven’t already, set up the Datadog log collection AWS Lambda function.

  2. Once the lambda function is installed, manually add a trigger on the S3 bucket or CloudWatch log group that contains your Amazon AppSync logs in the AWS console:
