Getting Started with the Agent
Create alerts using @opsgenie:
As seen below, filter for Datadog and click on the tile.
Enter your Datadog API key from the Integrations > APIs page in the dedicated field. The key looks like this:
Choose the recipients in OpsGenie and set up your filters.
Change the name of the integration if necessary.
Save the configuration.
Copy the red key and the name. You will use this in Datadog.
Add more DataDog integrations on OpsGenie by going to the OpsGenie Integrations page and repeating the steps above.
Create an OpsGenie alert by putting @opsgenie-service_name or @opsgenie in the Say What’s Happening field, section 5, in the Edit Metric Alert. When this alert is triggered in Datadog, an alert will be sent to the recipients in your OpsGenie service.
Acknowledge or close OpsGenie alerts from Datadog using @opsgenie-acknowledge or @opsgenie-close mentions in the Comments field of an OpsGenie event in Datadog.
Set-up alerts in OpsGenie. When that alert is triggered, an event will be created in Datadog. The tags and description field from the OpsGenie alert will be carried over to Datadog.
Acknowledge and close OpsGenie alerts from OpsGenie. When you do this, the associated event in Datadog will be updated with the username of the person who closed this alert.
