A few weeks ago, we announced third-party event sources for Eventarc, with the first cohort of third-party providers by our ecosystem partners. This blog post describes how to listen for events from one of those third-party providers, Datadog, and route them to a service in Google Cloud via Eventarc.
Datadog is a monitoring platform for cloud applications. It brings together end-to-end traces, metrics, and logs to make your applications and infrastructure observable. In Datadog, you can create monitors that track metrics, events, logs, integration availability, and network endpoints, and you can set alert thresholds on those monitors. Once these thresholds are reached, Datadog notifies your teams or services via email, Slack, and now a Google Cloud service via Eventarc.
Let’s take a look at what it takes to set up one of those monitors and notify a Google Cloud service when a threshold is reached.
