This article was accurate at the time of writing, but changes happen. If you find the instructions are outdated, leave a description in the comment field below and let us know!

Step 1: Create a service account and API credentials

You must have the System Administrator role on Datadog to add a service account.

Caution

Think carefully about the data you enter. After you create a service account, you can't make changes. You have to delete it and start over.

  1. Log in to the Datadog console.

  2. Navigate to Organization Settings > API Keys.

Step 2: Configure the technology in Workbench

Now that we have all the correct access configured and noted the credentials, we can integrate Datadog with Workbench.

  1. In a new browser tab, go to https://workbench.expel.io/settings/security-devices?setupIntegration=datadog.

  2. Complete these fields using the credentials and information you collected in Step 1:

    • Name: the host name of the device.

    • Location: the geographic location of the appliance.

    • API key: the API key generated in Step 1.

    • Application key: the Application key generated in Step 1.
