Aiven sends a set of standard tags with all data sent to Datadog when using the Datadog integration, such as aiven-cloud:<cloud_name>, aiven-service-type:<service_type> , aiven-service:<service_name> and aiven-project:<project_name>.

You can also add your own custom tags, which are then added to the data sent to Datadog.

You can configure the tags both on the endpoint configuration level and on a per-service integration level.

Configuring tags for the Datadog endpoint

When you configure the tags in the endpoint configuration, the tags are added to all data that uses this particular endpoint.

To add tags to the endpoint:

  1. Go to Service Integrations > Datadog and click the edit icon for the endpoint to see the configuration.

  2. Enter the tags that you want and optionally descriptions for them, then click the Add icon.

  3. Click Save changes.

Configuring tags for a service

When you configure the tags on the service integration level, the tags are only added for this particular integration (connection). Any tags that are configured on the endpoint level are included in addition to these tags.

To add tags to the service integration:

  1. Select your service.

  2. On the Overview tab, click Manage integrations.

  3. Click Edit for the service integration that you are using.

  4. Enter the tags that you want and optionally descriptions for them, then click the Add icon.

  5. Click Save configuration.
