When you create an event in Datadog you can also use @ to notify users via the API or UI. There are also a set of reserved addresses which may be used to contact Datadog or all members of your account.
@support-datadog– this will reach Datadog support directly when posted in your stream.
@all– this will send a notification to all members of your organization.
@someonesname– this will notify the specific user named ‘someonesname’.
@email@example.com will send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Furthermore, if you have HipChat, Slack, Webhooks, Pagerduty or VictorOps you can use:
@slack-[room-name]– posts the event or graph to that chat room.
@webhook– alerts or triggers whatever is attached to that webhook. Check out this blogpost on Webhooks!
@oncall– sends an alert to Pagerduty. You can also use
Note that an @-notification in a comment will not send an email to the user posting that comment. So, you cannot @-notify yourself in a comment, but configuring an @-notification to yourself will still work in a monitor message.
