We now support submitting Datadog events into the system over email. This is ideal for applications that do not have a direct integration with Datadog, but are able to send email notifications. If you can control the output of the body of the email, you may want to consider using a JSON-formatted message. This supports tags and other metadata. Otherwise you can submit a plain text message.
Create a Datadog event email in your account and give it a try.
If you’re not currently a Datadog user, but want to try it out, sign up for a 14 day free trial and start sending and receiving email events in minutes.
