Datadog is a popular cloud-based monitoring and analytics platform that provides comprehensive visibility into the performance, availability, and security of modern applications. 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.

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 → Integrations 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.

      • Integration changes (disabled, deleted)
      • Application changes (newly created, deleted, name change)
    • Vulnerabilities detected, all by default or only for the selected risk level(s) - high, medium or low.
    • Rules and triggers changed (creating, updating, or deleting the rule or trigger)
    • Scope (exposed assets) changed: updates in hosts, services, and domains

    To find the Wallarm logs among other records, you can use the source:wallarm_cloud search tag in the Datadog Logs service.

  8. Click Add integration.

Setting up additional alerts

Besides the notifications you have already set up through the integration card, Wallarm triggers allow you to select additional events for notifications:

For condition detailing, you can add one or more filters. As soon, as condition and filters are set, select the integration through which the selected alert should be sent. You can select several integrations simultaneously.

Choosing an integration

Disabling and deleting an integration

You can delete or temporarily disable the integration. While deleting stops sending notificatioins and completely deletes all configuration, disabling just stops sending notifications which you can at any moment re-enable with the same settings.

If for the integration the System related events are selected to trigger notifications, Wallarm will notify about both of these actions.

System unavailability and incorrect integration parameters

Notifications to the system are sent via requests. If the system is unavailable or integration parameters are configured incorrectly, the error code is returned in the response to the request.

If the system responds to Wallarm request with any code other than 2xx, Wallarm resends the request with the interval until the 2xx code is received:

  • The first cycle intervals: 1, 3, 5, 10, 10 seconds

  • The second cycle intervals: 0, 1, 3, 5, 30 seconds

  • The third cycle intervals: 1, 1, 3, 5, 10, 30 minutes

If the percentage of unsuccessful requests reaches 60% in 12 hours, the integration is automatically disabled. If you receive system notifications, you will get a message about automatically disabled integration.
