Connect a Datadog resource

Learn how to connect DataDog to Retool.

Integrate Retool and Datadog

To connect your resource to Datadog, add your API key which you can find here. Then you need to get your application key here. You may need to create a new key if you don't have one already. Be sure to copy the key and not the ID into the application key field in Retool.

Save the resource and that's it! You can now query the Datadog API in Retool!

Querying the Datadog API

After setting up a Datadog integration with Retool, a new option for a Datadog query will appear on the Retool page editors. After selecting that option, you will be presented with a UI that allows you to use any of the end points in the Datadog api spec to send and retrieve data from Datadog. You can learn about the popular endpoints like metrics retrieval, event logging, and dashboard creation here.
