    The Pulumi Datadog provider uses the Datadog SDK to manage and provision resources.

    Installation

    The Datadog provider is available as a package in all Pulumi languages:

    Configuring Credentials

    Pulumi relies on the Datadog SDK to authenticate requests from your computer to Datadog. Your credentials are never sent to pulumi.com. The Pulumi Datadog Provider needs to be configured with Datadog credentials before it can be used to create resources.

    Once the credentials are obtained, there are two ways to communicate your authorization tokens to Pulumi:

    1. Set the environment variables DATADOG_API_KEY and DATADOG_APP_KEY:

      $ export DATADOG_API_KEY=XXXXXXXXXXXXXX
      $ export DATADOG_APP_KEY=YYYYYYYYYYYYYY
      
    2. Set them using configuration, if you prefer that they be stored alongside your Pulumi stack for easy multi-user access:

      $ pulumi config set datadog:apiKey XXXXXXXXXXXXXX --secret
      $ pulumi config set datadog:appKey YYYYYYYYYYYYYY --secret
      

    Remember to pass --secret when setting datadog:apiKey and datadog:appKey so that they are properly encrypted. The complete list of configuration parameters is in the Datadog provider README.
