RT - DataDog Integration

Has anyone ever attempted to integrate RT with DataDog and it’s web api or
configurations?
I’ve seen some integrations with “SendNagiosAlert” but was wondering if
anyone had done something similar with DataDog? I’m starting to play with
it now using this -
http://search.cpan.org/~jpinkham/WebService-DataDog-0.9.0/lib/WebService/DataDog.pm

Hi all, so I have some things work on this. I’m wondering if anyone can
help me with the last part. I really can’t thank you guys enough for any
help you can give.

So I have a custom scrip that’s working if I run it maually but getting it
through RT is causing issues. So this is what I’ve got.
Condition: On Create
Action: User defined
Template: Blank

Custom condition:
return 0;

Custom action preparation code:
my $ticket = $self->TicketObj;
my $subject = $Tickets->Subject;
my $name = $requestor;
my $queue = $queue
system(’/usr/bin/perl /opt/rt4/lib/RT/Action/DataDogEvent.pm $name $ticket
"$subject" $ queue’);
return 1;

Custom action commit code:
return 0;

The Script that’s getting called.
/opt/rt4/lib/RT/Action/DataDogEvent.pm
#!/usr/bin/perl

use strict;
use warnings;

use WebService::DataDog;
use Try::Tiny;
use Data::Dumper;

my $datadog = WebService::DataDog->new(
api_key => ‘123apikey’,
application_key => ‘123appkey’,
verbose => 0, # Enable this for debugging output

verbose => 1,

);

my $event = $datadog->build(‘Event’);
my $event_list;

my $name = $ARGV[0];
my $ticket = $ARGV[1];
my $subject = $ARGV[2];
my $queue = $ARGV[3];

Post a new event to stream

$event->create(
title => “$name - $ticket”,
text => “$subject”,
tags => [‘NOCRT’, “$queue”],

Hi Matt,

It would probably be easier to put all of the DataDog code right in an
RT Action module rather than making a system call. If you take a look at
the docs for this extension, it describes how to do that, where to put
the new action files, etc.:

And it’s worth installing that extension if you’ll be working with
custom conditions and actions because it makes it much easier to manage
them.

And if you’re thinking about releasing it as an extension, this will get
you started:

https://bestpractical.com/docs/rt/4.2/writing_extensions.html

Good luck.

Jim thank you so much for sending these. I really appreciate it. I’ll
respond back on resolution to ensure anyone else who may want this has the
info.On Thu, Jan 28, 2016 at 10:44 AM Jim Brandt jbrandt@bestpractical.com wrote:
