The Datadog-Contrast integration allows you to get your Contrast logs into Datadog.


Set up Contrast Protect logs collection

Enable logs collection for Datadog Agent in /etc/datadog-agent/datadog.yaml on Linux platforms. On other platforms, refer to the [Agent Configuration Files guide][1] for the location of your configuration file:

logs_enabled: true
  • Add this configuration block to your contrastsecurity.d/conf.yaml file to start collecting your Contrast Logs:

  • Create a new conf.yaml file.

  • Add a custom log collection configuration group.

      - type: file
        path: /path/to/contrast/security.log
        service: contrast
        source: contrastsecurity
