To set up this integration, start by configuring the native BigPanda integration within Datadog. The Datadog alerting pipeline will send all alerts to BigPanda. BigPanda then processes and correlates the alert data from Datadog to create and maintain up-to-date incidents in BigPanda.


Open Integration Manager

The Open Integration Manager is available for use with Datadog. For more information, see the Open Integration Manager documentation.

Key Features

  • Easily send all Datadog alerts to BigPanda with a native integration in Datadog.
  • Correlate alerts from Datadog Monitors to help you understand and respond faster to production issues.

Data Model

BigPanda normalizes alert data from Datadog into tags. You can use tag values to filter the incident feed and to define filter conditions for Environments. The aggreg_key property is used for deduplication and correlation.

Data Normalization

All properties from the Datadog alert are mapped 1:1 to tags on the BigPanda alert. The below chart describes some special properties of specific Datadog alert tags.

TagDescriptionAdditional Info

monitor_nameName of the monitor in Datadog.Alternate Primary Property (if host does not exist)

BigPanda will automatically correlate a Datadog status into a BigPanda status that can be used to search and filter incidents.

Deactivate the Integration in BigPanda

If you want to stop sending data to BigPanda but don’t want to delete your integration, you can temporarily deactivate it.

To deactivate an integration:

  1. In BigPanda, navigate to the Integrations tab and select the desired integration from the list. This will open integration details on the right side of the window.
  2. At the top of the integration details, click the Active/Inactive toggle next to the application name to change the status of the integration.


Alert Resolution for Inactive Integrations

Any active alerts belonging to an inactive integration must be manually resolved or they will stay in the system until the auto-resolve window is reached.

Uninstall the Integration

Deleting an integration requires changes to both the integrated system and BigPanda. You must uninstall the integration on the integrated system and then delete the integration from BigPanda.


When replacing an existing integration with a new tool or system, we recommend configuring the new integration first to ensure no data is lost.

Stop Sending Data to BigPanda

  1. In Datadog, go to the BigPanda integration tile.
  2. Under the Configuration tab click Uninstall Integration

Manually resolve any open alerts sent from the integration to remove the associated incidents from your incident feed. These incidents will not automatically resolve without an ok status from the original sending integration.

Delete the Integration in BigPanda

  1. In BigPanda, navigate to the Integrations tab and select the desired integration from the list.
  2. In the integration details on the right of the page, click the trash icon, then confirm you want to delete the integration. The integration will then be removed immediately.


Alert Resolution for Deleted Integrations

All active alerts from the integration will be resolved after deletion.
