Datadog provides options to access system metrics, monitor alerts & multiple cloud accounts across multiple sub-organizations in the parent account as described below.
- Cross-Org viewer: Allows a Parent account to be associated with any number of child organizations. These child organizations will automatically forward all system metrics to their Parent account. To enable the cross-org viewer, simply email the Datadog support team.
- Monitor alerts can also be forwarded to the Parent account through the configuration of the Webhooks integration in the child organization combined with the Datadog Events API. For e.g.: One such webhook configuration would reach out to https://app.datadoghq.com/api/v1/events?api_key=<API_KEY> (the API_KEY associated with the parent account to which the event will be posted)
- Access to multiple cloud accounts: Parent accounts can also access the AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud accounts for each of their child organizations through their respective cloud providers’ integrations. Combined with the above Cross-Org viewer this will allow for a more federated setup across multiple teams, users, and groups within Datadog.
