Datadog’s Azure integration enables the collection of metrics and logs from your Azure environment. The configuration options are different depending on which Datadog site your organization is using:
All Sites: All Datadog sites can use the App Registration credential process for implementing metric collection, and the Event Hub setup for sending Azure Platform Logs.
US3: If your organization is on the Datadog US3 site, use the Azure Native integration to streamline management and data collection for your Azure environment. Datadog recommends using this method when possible. Setup entails creating a Datadog resource in Azure to link your Azure subscriptions to your Datadog organization. This replaces the App Registration credential process for metric collection and Event Hub setup for log forwarding.
Connect to Microsoft Azure to:
- Get metrics from Azure VMs with or without installing the Datadog Agent.
- Collect standard Azure Monitor metrics for all Azure services: Application Gateway, App Service (Web & Mobile), Batch Service, Event Hub, IoT Hub, Logic App, Redis Cache, Server Farm (App Service Plan), SQL Database, SQL Elastic Pool, Virtual Machine Scale Set, and many more.
- Tag your Azure metrics with Azure-specific information about the associated resource, such as region, resource group, and tags defined in your Azure environment.
- Get Datadog generated metrics to provide unique insights into your Azure environment.
- Correlate data from your Azure applications across logs, metrics, APM tracing, user activity, and more within your Datadog organization.
Datadog's Azure integration is built to collect all metrics from Azure Monitor
. Datadog strives to continually update the docs to show every sub-integration, but cloud services rapidly release new metrics and services so the list of integrations can sometimes lag.
metrics are generated by Datadog from Azure Resource Health. For more information, see Azure Status and Count Metrics

See the Standard Azure Integration Programmatic Management Guide for instructions on automatically setting up the standard Datadog integration with Azure. You can set up the integration through Terraform or the Azure CLI, deploy the Datadog Agent through the Datadog Azure VM extension, and run automated scripts to enable log collection.
See the Azure Native Integration Programmatic Management Guide for instructions on using Terraform to set up Datadog’s Azure Native integration with the Datadog resource in Azure.
See the Standard Azure Integration Manual Setup Guide for instructions on manually setting up the Datadog integration with Azure through the Azure portal or CLI.
See the Azure Native Integration Manual Setup Guide for instructions on manually setting up the Azure Native integration with Datadog. This includes creation of the Datadog resource in Azure and optional configuration of single sign-on (SSO).
See the Send Azure Logs to Datadog guide for instructions on sending your Azure logs to Datadog. You can choose between an automatic or manual process to enable log collection through the Datadog-Azure function and an Azure Event Hub. You can also use an Azure Blob Storage Function to collect logs from all of your Azure App Services.
See the Send Azure Logs with the Datadog Resource guide for instructions on sending your subscription level, Azure resource, and Azure Active Directory logs to Datadog.
All standard Azure Monitor metrics plus unique Datadog generated metrics.
For a detailed list of metrics, select the appropriate Azure service in the overview section.
The Azure integration automatically collects Azure Service Health events. To view these in Datadog, navigate to the Event explorer and filter for the
Azure Service Health namespace.
The Azure integration does not include any service checks.
Azure integration metrics, events, and service checks receive the following tags in addition to tags defined in your Azure environments:
|Integration||Namespace||Datadog Tag Keys|
|All Azure integrations||All|
status (if applicable)
|Azure VM integrations|
|Azure App Service Plans|
|Azure App Services Web Apps & Functions|
