AWS CodeDeploy

CodeDeploy default dashboard


AWS CodeDeploy is a service that automates code deployment to instances in the cloud and on-premise.

Enable this integration to see AWS CodeDeploy deployment events and metrics in Datadog.



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

Metric collection

  1. Add the following permissions to your Datadog IAM policy in order to collect AWS CodeDeploy metrics. For more information, see the CodeDeploy policies on the AWS website.

    AWS PermissionDescription
    codedeploy:ListApplicationsUsed to list all CodeDeploy applications
    codedeploy:ListDeploymentGroupsUsed to list all deployment groups within an application (edited)
    codedeploy:ListDeploymentsUsed to list deployments in a deployment group within an application (edited)
    codedeploy:BatchGetDeploymentsGets detailed descriptions of deployments (edited)
    codedeploy:BatchGetDeploymentGroupsGets detailed descriptions of deployment groups
  2. Install the Datadog - AWS CodeDeploy integration.

Log collection

Enable logging

Configure AWS CodeDeploy to send logs either to a S3 bucket or to CloudWatch.

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

Send logs to Datadog

  1. If you haven’t already, set up the Datadog Forwarder Lambda function.

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

Data Collected


Count of deployments.
Shown as event
The run time in seconds from deployment creation to completion.
Shown as second

Each of the metrics retrieved from AWS is assigned the same tags that appear in the AWS console, including but not limited to host name, security-groups, and more.


The AWS Codedeploy integration includes events for successful, failed, and stopped deployments. See example events below:
