Connecting Rollbar to Datadog

Rollbar users can syndicate exceptions, errors and code deployments as 'Events' in Datadog.

Setup

Configuration is per-project in Rollbar.

  1. In Datadog, go to Integrations → APIs and copy your API key.

  2. In Rollbar, go to the Notification settings page for a project: Dashboard → Settings →   Notifications → Datadog.

  3. Add your Datadog API key.

  4. Click Enable Datadog Integration

Congrats! Datadog is now integrated with Rollbar. Once integrated, the default notification 'Rules' will be activated and sent to your Datadog account.

Customizing Datadog Notification Rules

The Datadog event created by each notification rule can be customized using notification variables and filters. Additionally, you may specify a different API key for each notification rule if you wish to send the events to a different Datadog account.

Automatic Event Priority

When creating an event in Datadog from Rollbar, you can explicitly set the priority (low, normal) or allow Rollbar to automatically determine the priority. Here's how priority is automatically determined:

Rollbar Notification Rule Datadog Priority
Item resolved low
Everything else normal

Automatic Event Type

When creating an event in Datadog from Rollbar, you can explicitly set the type (error, warning, info, success) or allow Rollbar to automatically determine the type. Here's how type is automatically determined:

Rollbar Notification Rule Datadog Event Type
Deploy info
Item resolved success
Everything else determined by Rollbar item level

Rollbar item levels are mapped to Datadog event types as follows:

Rollbar Item Level Datadog Event Type
critical, error error
warning warning
info, debug info
