Configure Metrics from Datadog Synthetics
- In order to setup metrics in your status page from Datadog Synthetics first head out to Datadog settings and obtain an API key as well as Application key, you will need this to configure your integration in Statuspal.
- In your status page's Admin site click on Integrations > New integration and select Datadog from the dropdown.
- Enter the keys you obtained in step 1 and make sure to select the correct region, click on Create.
- Then click on Metrics > New metrics and select your Datadog integration in the Source dropdown.
- Select the synthetic test that you would like to create the metric from and configure your metric (for browser tests only Uptime type is supported) then click Create.
- Once you've created the metric it should start populating with the last hour, it will continue to get populated in the next hours after that.
