Stream logs to Datadog

DataStream supports sending uncompressed logs to Datadog, a monitoring and analytics solution that allows you to see inside applications within your stack and aggregate the results. For security purposes DataStream always sends logs over TLS.

Before you begin

  • Register for a Datadog account. The place where you register your Datadog account, the United States (US) or the European Union (EU), changes endpoints you use when configuring Datadog as a destination in a data stream configuration. See Datadog site.
  • Identify the HTTPS endpoint in the corresponding hosting region your account is configured with. See Datadog log endpoints.
  • Generate a Datadog API key dedicated for a data stream. See Datadog API keys.
