The Cortex integration enables you to trigger Datadog incidents directly from the Cortex dashboard.


To set up this integration, you must have a Cortex account, along with Datadog API and Application keys.


  1. Contact Cortex for a demo if not a current customer.
  2. Create a Datadog API key.
  3. Create a Datadog Application key.
  4. Add Datadog API and Application keys to the Cortex Datadog Integration.


  1. Go to the Cortex homepage.
  2. Click on an existing service or create a new service.
  3. On the sidebar under “INTEGRATIONS”, click “See all” and choose “Datadog”.
  4. Click the red “Trigger Incident” button above “Incidents”.
  5. Fill in information in the form and click green “Trigger Incident” button.
  6. You should get a message on screen that says: “Incident has been triggered! Click here to see it in Datadog.”
  7. Additionally, the new incident should be displayed under “Incidents”.
