AWS Workspaces

Crawler Crawler


Amazon WorkSpaces is a fully managed, secure desktop computing service which runs on the AWS cloud.

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



If you haven’t already, set up the Amazon Web Services integration first. There are no other installation steps that need to be performed.

Metric collection

  1. In the AWS integration tile, ensure that WorkSpaces is checked under metric collection.
  2. Install the Datadog - Amazon WorkSpaces integration.

Log collection

Enable logging

Configure Amazon WorkSpaces to send logs either to a S3 bucket or to Cloudwatch.

Note: If you log to a S3 bucket, make sure that amazon_workspace 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 WorkSpaces logs in the AWS console:
