Datadog

You can set up Wallarm to send notifications of detected events directly to the Datadog Logs service by creating an appropriate integration via Datadog API key in Wallarm Console.

You can choose the following events to be sent to Datadog:

  • Hits detected except for:

  • System related: newly added users, deleted or disabled integration

  • Vulnerabilities detected

  • Scope changed: updates in hosts, services, and domains

Setting up integration

  1. Open the Datadog UI → Organization SettingsAPI Keys and generate the API key for the integration with Wallarm.

  2. Open Wallarm Console → SettingsIntegrations and proceed to the Datadog integration setup.

  3. Enter an integration name.

  4. Paste the Datadog API key to the API key field.

  5. Select the Datadog region.

  6. Choose event types to trigger notifications. If the events are not chosen, then notifications will not be sent.

  7. Test the integration and make sure the settings are correct.

  8. Click Add integration.

Testing integration

Integration testing allows checking configuration correctness, availability of the Wallarm Cloud, and the notification format. To test the integration, you can use the button Test integration when creating or editing the integration.

The integration is tested as follows:

  • Test notifications with the prefix [Test message] are sent to the selected system.

  • Test integrations are sent for all events available for the selected system. If the integration card includes 3 event types, the system will receive 3 test notifications.

    If the integration card includes the event type System related, an appropriate test notification includes details on the newly added user.

  • Test notifications include test data.

Updating integration

To update the settings of active integration:

  1. Go to Wallarm Console → SettingsIntegrations in the US or EU Cloud.

Disabling integration

To stop sending reports and notifications temporarily, you can disable the integration:

  1. Go to Wallarm Console → SettingsIntegrations in the US or EU Cloud.

  2. Open an active integration and click Disable.

To re-enable sending reports and notifications, open the disabled integration and click Enable.

Disabling the integration is the system event. If you receive system notifications, messages about disabled integration will be sent to the configured system.

Deleting integration

To stop sending reports and notifications permanently, you can delete the integration. Deleting an integration cannot be undone. The integration will be removed from the list permanently.

  1. Go to Wallarm Console → SettingsIntegrations in the US or EU Cloud.

  2. Open integration and click Delete.

  3. Confirm the action.

Deleting the integration is the system event. If you receive system notifications, messages about deleted integration will be sent to the configured system.
