Datadog
Use the Datadog integration to ingest alerts raised by the monitoring system and respond to them automatically.

Overview

Datadog gives you the ability to create monitors that actively check metrics, integration availability, network endpoints, and more.
Using the Fylamynt | Datadog integration you can see the list of available monitors and pick the monitor to trigger a workflow when it goes into the state of Alert.

Use Cases

  • Trigger a workflow in Fylamynt, when a specific DataDog monitor goes into the state of ALERT.
  • Retrieve data from Datadog Monitors based on a search query.
  • Returns the test result from all the synthetic tests.
