Datadog Cost Reports

Connecting Your Datadog Account#

Vantage uses a read only (scoped to usage_read) Datadog OAuth token. When connecting your Datadog account your user will need access to the usage_read scope in order to complete the connection.

This token is used to pull data from the usage metering endpoint. The usage metering API allows you to get hourly, daily, and monthly usage across multiple facets of Datadog. This API is available to all Pro and Enterprise customers. Usage is only accessible for parent-level organizations.

For documentation about Vantage from Datadog, please refer to the Vantage Integration page in Datadog's documentation.

Cost Data Ingestion#

Vantage will ingest six months of historical Datadog costs upon connection. Each day at 2 AM UTC this data is refreshed, but delays up to 72 hours may occur.
