Stream Activity Events to Third-Party Platforms

This document provides step-by-step instructions and best practices for setting up NetBird activity event streaming integrations to different third-party platforms.


Before you start creating and configuring a Datadog event-streaming integration, ensure that you have the following:

  • A Datadog account with the permissions to create and manage API keys. If you don't have the required permissions, ask your Datadog administrator to grant them to you.

Step 1: Create a Datdog API key

  • Navigate to the API Keys page
  • Click + New Key at the top
  • Give it a descriptive name like NetBird Event Streaming
  • Click Create Key
  • Copy the key. You will need this key when configuring an integration in NetBird.

Step 2: Create an event-streaming integration in NetBird


  • Enable and configure the Datadog integration


  • Then enter the API key you created in Step 1 and click Connect
