Tailscale is a peer-to-peer VPN service that simplifies and secures network connectivity.

With this integration, you can:

  1. Control your Tailscale data retention.
  2. Build custom widgets and dashboards.
  3. Cross-reference Tailscale events with the data from other services in your stack.

This integration streams two log types from Tailscale:

Configuration Audit Logs:

Configuration audit logs let you identify who did what and when in your tailnet. These logs record actions that modify a tailnet’s configuration, including the type of action, the actor, the target resource, and the time.

Network Flow logs:

Network flow logs tell you which nodes connected to which other nodes and when on your Tailscale network. You can export network logs for long-term storage, security analysis, threat detection, or incident investigation.

After parsing your Tailscale logs, Datadog then populates the out-of-the-box Tailscale overview dashboard with insights into security-related events from your physical and virtual traffic.


To enable log streaming:

  1. Login to your Tailscale admin console
  2. Navigate to the Logs tab
  3. Select the Start streaming… button
  4. From the menu, select Datadog and add a URL + token or API key
  5. Select the Start streaming button
