Datadog

A Jenkins plugin for automatically forwarding metrics, events, and service checks to a Datadog account.

Note: The Jenkins CI plugin page for this plugin references this documentation.

Setup

Installation

This plugin requires Jenkins 1.632 or newer.

This plugin can be installed from the Update Center (found at Manage Jenkins -> Manage Plugins) in your Jenkins installation:

  1. Select the Available tab, search for Datadog, and select the checkbox next to Datadog Plugin.
  2. Install the plugin by using one of the two install buttons at the bottom of the screen.
  3. To verify the plugin is installed, search for Datadog Plugin on the Installed tab.

Continue below for configuration.

Note: If you see an unexpected version of the Datadog Plugin, run Check Now from the Manage Jenkins -> Manage Plugins screen.

Configuration

There are two ways to configure your plugin to submit data to Datadog:

  • RECOMMENDED: Using a DogStatsD server / Datadog Agent that acts as a forwarder between Jenkins and Datadog.
    • Build Logs collection only works with a full Datadog Agent installed.
  • Sending data directly to Datadog through HTTP.
    • The HTTP client implementation used is blocking with a timeout duration of 1 minute. If there is a connection problem with Datadog, it may slow your Jenkins instance down.

The configuration can be done from the plugin user interface with a Groovy script, or through environment variables.

Plugin user interface

To configure your Datadog Plugin, navigate to the Manage Jenkins -> Configure System page on your Jenkins installation. Once there, scroll down to find the Datadog Plugin section:

HTTP forwarding {#http-forwarding-plugin}
  1. Select the radio button next to Use Datadog API URL and Key to report to Datadog (selected by default).
  2. Paste your Datadog API key in the API Key textbox on the Jenkins configuration screen.
  3. Test your Datadog API key by using the Test Key button on the Jenkins configuration screen directly below the API key textbox.
  4. (optional) Enter your Datadog Log Intake URL.
  5. Save your configuration.
DogStatsD forwarding {#dogstatsd-forwarding-plugin}
  1. Select the radio button next to Use the Datadog Agent to report to Datadog.
  2. Specify your DogStatsD server hostname and port.
  3. (optional) Enter your Log Collection Port and configure log collection.
  4. Save your configuration.

Groovy script

Configure your Datadog plugin to forward data through HTTP or DogStatsD using the Groovy scripts below. Configuring the plugin this way might be useful if you're running your Jenkins Master in a Docker container using the official Jenkins Docker image or any derivative that supports plugins.txt and Groovy init scripts.

HTTP forwarding {#http-forwarding-groovy-script}
import jenkins.model.*
import org.datadog.jenkins.plugins.datadog.DatadogGlobalConfiguration

def j = Jenkins.getInstance()
def d = j.getDescriptor("org.datadog.jenkins.plugins.datadog.DatadogGlobalConfiguration")

// If you want to use Datadog API URL and Key to report to Datadog
d.setReportWith('HTTP')
d.setTargetApiURL('https://api.datadoghq.com/api/')
d.setTargetApiKey('<DATADOG_API_KEY>')

// Customization, see dedicated section below
d.setBlacklist('job1,job2')

// If you want to collect logs
d.setLogIntakeUrl('https://http-intake.logs.datadoghq.com/v1/input/')

// Save config
d.save()
DogStatsD forwarding {#dogstatsd-forwarding-groovy-script}
import jenkins.model.*
import org.datadog.jenkins.plugins.datadog.DatadogGlobalConfiguration

def j = Jenkins.getInstance()
def d = j.getDescriptor("org.datadog.jenkins.plugins.datadog.DatadogGlobalConfiguration")

d.setReportWith('DSD')
d.setTargetHost('localhost')
d.setTargetPort(8125)

// If you want to collect logs
d.setLogCollectionPort(8125)

// Customization, see dedicated section below
d.setBlacklist('job1,job2')

// Save config
d.save()

Environment variables

Configure your Datadog plugin using environment variables with the DATADOG_JENKINS_PLUGIN_REPORT_WITH variable, which specifies the report mechanism to use.

HTTP forwarding {#http-forwarding-env}
  1. Set the DATADOG_JENKINS_PLUGIN_REPORT_WITH variable to HTTP.
  2. Set the DATADOG_JENKINS_PLUGIN_TARGET_API_URL variable, which specifies the Datadog API endpoint (defaults to https://api.datadoghq.com/api/).
  3. Set the DATADOG_JENKINS_PLUGIN_TARGET_API_KEY variable, which specifies your Datadog API key.
  4. (optional) Set the DATADOG_JENKINS_PLUGIN_TARGET_LOG_INTAKE_URL variable, which specifies the Datadog Log Intake URL (defaults to https://http-intake.logs.datadoghq.com/v1/input/).
DogStatsD forwarding {#dogstatsd-forwarding-env}
  1. Set the DATADOG_JENKINS_PLUGIN_REPORT_WITH variable to DSD.
  2. Set the DATADOG_JENKINS_PLUGIN_TARGET_HOST variable, which specifies the DogStatsD server host (defaults to localhost).
  3. Set the DATADOG_JENKINS_PLUGIN_TARGET_PORT variable, which specifies the DogStatsD server port (defaults to 8125).
  4. (optional) Set the DATADOG_JENKINS_PLUGIN_TARGET_LOG_COLLECTION_PORT variable, which specifies the Datadog Agent log collection port.

Logging

Logging is done by utilizing the java.util.Logger, which follows the best logging practices for Jenkins. To obtain logs, follow the directions in the Jenkins logging documentation. When adding a logger, all Datadog plugin functions start with org.datadog.jenkins.plugins.datadog. and the function name you are after should autopopulate. As of this writing, the only function available was org.datadog.jenkins.plugins.datadog.listeners.DatadogBuildListener.

Customization

Global customization

To customize your global configuration, in Jenkins navigate to Manage Jenkins -> Configure System then click the Advanced button. The following options are available:

Customization Description Environment variable
Blacklisted jobs A comma-separated list of regex used to exclude job names from monitoring, for example: susans-job,johns-.*,prod_folder/prod_release. DATADOG_JENKINS_PLUGIN_BLACKLIST
Whitelisted jobs A comma-separated list of regex used to include job names for monitoring, for example: susans-job,johns-.*,prod_folder/prod_release. DATADOG_JENKINS_PLUGIN_WHITELIST
Global tag file The path to a workspace file containing a comma separated list of tags (not compatible with pipeline jobs). DATADOG_JENKINS_PLUGIN_GLOBAL_TAG_FILE
Global tags A comma-separated list of tags to apply to all metrics, events, and service checks. DATADOG_JENKINS_PLUGIN_GLOBAL_TAGS
Global job tags A comma separated list of regex to match a job and a list of tags to apply to that job. Note: Tags can reference match groups in the regex using the $ symbol, for example: (.*?)_job_(*?)_release, owner:$1, release_env:$2, optional:Tag3 DATADOG_JENKINS_PLUGIN_GLOBAL_JOB_TAGS
Send security audit events Submits the Security Events Type of events and metrics (enabled by default). DATADOG_JENKINS_PLUGIN_EMIT_SECURITY_EVENTS

Log Collection for Agents

Note: This configuration only applies to those using the Datadog Agent configuration.

  1. Collecting logs is disabled by default in the Datadog Agent, enable it in your datadog.yaml file:

    logs_enabled: true
  2. To collect Jenkins logs, create a custom log source file for your Agent by creating a conf.yaml inside conf.d/jenkins.d with the following:

    logs:
      - type: tcp 
        port: <PORT> 
        service: <SERVICE>
        source: jenkins
    
  3. In Jenkins, submit the port you specified above as the Log Collection Port. You can set this using env vars, a groovy script, or the Jenkins UI.

  4. Restart the Agent.

Service checks

Build status jenkins.job.status with the default tags: : jenkins_url, job, node, result, user_id

Issue Tracking

GitHub's built-in issue tracking system is used to track all issues relating to this plugin: jenkinsci/datadog-plugin/issues. However, given how Jenkins plugins are hosted, there may be issues that are posted to JIRA as well. You can check this jenkins issue for those issue postings.

Note: Unresolved issues on JIRA mentioning Datadog.
