Overview

Amazon Simple Email Service (SES) is a cost-effective, outbound-only email-sending service.

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

Setup

Installation

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

Configuration

  1. In the AWS integration tile, ensure that SES is checked under metric collection.

  2. Add those permissions to your Datadog IAM policy in order to collect Amazon SES metrics:

    • ses:GetSendQuota: Add metrics about send quotas.
    • ses:GetSendStatistics: Add metrics about send statistics.

    For more information on SES policies, review the documentation on the AWS website.

  3. Install the Datadog - AWS SES integration.
