Datadog-Cloudhealth Integration

Overview

If you use both Cloudhealth and Datadog, you can configure your Cloudhealth account to collect per-instance resource usage metrics from Datadog. This helps CloudHealth gives you more accurate recommendations for adjusting your cloud resources.

This integration does NOT pull anything from Cloudhealth into Datadog. It just helps Cloudhealth poll your Datadog account for metrics.

  2. Fill out the form with information from the Datadog account that you want to integrate:

    • Name - friendly name, you can update this at any time.

    • API Key - API keys are unique to your organization.

    • Application Key - Application keys, in conjunction with your organization’s API key, give access to Datadog’s API. CloudHealth only queries Datadog for host and metric information, and does not write anything to Datadog.

    • Import Tags - This will allow you to import Datadog tags into the platform

  3. Allowed tags - if “Import tags” is toggled on, tags will be actively collected and you will see an additional field to whitelist the tags that you want to import into CloudHealth. Select the tags that should be allowed to imported within the CloudHealth platform.
