API Test & Monitoring | Datadog

Code-Free API Tests

Proactively monitor every layer of your network with Datadog.

API tests are a crucial part of ensuring that your applications are properly recieving and responding to user requests, and delivering a complete user experience. Datadog’s synthetic monitoring allows you to test the availability and responsiveness of every enpoint in your API. Test and monitor HTTP, gRPC, SSL, DNS, WebSocket, TCP, UDP, and ICMP APIs, all from global managed and private locations.

Datadog’s synthetic monitoring measures reply time, status code, and more, and can chain together multiple request for multistep testing. Datadog Synthetic Monitoring enables you to track how efficiently your API endpoints handle traffic at each and every step, so you can ensure that endpoints are processing incoming requests as expected.


A comprehensive suite of API tests

  • Validate all layers of your system: Test across HTTP, gRPC, SSL, DNS, WebSocket, TCP, UDP, and ICMP from global managed and private locations.
  • Code-free API tests: Quickly identify and create API tests for any untested endpoints with a single click. No coding required.
  • Visualize your results: View a breakdown of your network timing data for a quicker root cause analysis.

Single or Multistep API tests for any workflow

  • Single API Tests: Create a single-step test to monitor response latency, HTTP status code, response header, and more.
  • Multistep API Tests: Chain together multiple HTTP requests to create a multi-step API test.
  • View each step in the chain: Track the duration of each test step across several locations, and view a breakdown of any point of failure.

Ensure connections to your services are secure

  • Protect your users' data: Secure connections are crucial to ensure users are sending properly encrypted data.
  • Stay on top of SSL certification: Detect when a certificate is about to expire, verify that your certificates are valid, and that the connection uses the right TLS.
  • Test certificates in multiple locations: Your user base may not be able to reliably access your application if a certificate expires in one or more locations.
