Pulumi is a modern infrastructure as code platform that enables cloud engineering teams to define, deploy, and manage cloud resources on any cloud using their favorite programming languages.

The Pulumi integration is used to provision any of the cloud resources available in Datadog. This integration must be configured with credentials to deploy and update resources in Datadog.

Note: You need to set AWS IAM Permissions for the integration to make changes. You can find steps on setting AWS IAM Permissions in our AWS Integration documentation.



The Pulumi Datadog integration uses the Datadog SDK to manage and provision resources.


  1. Sign up for a free or commercial Pulumi account

  2. Install Pulumi

  3. Once obtained, there are two ways to set your Datadog authorization tokens for Pulumi:

Set the environment variables DATADOG_API_KEY and DATADOG_APP_KEY:


Or, set them using configuration if you prefer that they be stored alongside your Pulumi stack for easier multi-user access:

pulumi config set datadog:apiKey XXXXXXXXXXXXXX --secret && pulumi config set datadog:appKey YYYYYYYYYYYYYY --secret

Note: Pass --secret when setting datadog:apiKey and datadog:appKey so that they are properly encrypted.

  1. Run pulumi new to initialize a project directory for your infrastructure stack and follow the API documentation to define new metrics, monitors, dashboards, or other resources.

  2. Once you have defined your cloud resources in code, run pulumi up to create the new resources defined in your Pulumi program.
