This repository contains a Python API client for the Datadog API. The code is generated using openapi-generator and apigentools.


Building and using the API client library requires Python 3.6+.


To install the API client library, simply execute:

pip install datadog-api-client

Getting Started

Please follow the installation instruction and execute the following Python code:

import os
from dateutil.parser import parse as dateutil_parser
import datadog_api_client.v1
from datadog_api_client.v1.api import aws_integration_api
from datadog_api_client.v1.models import *
from pprint import pprint

# Defining the host is optional and defaults to
# See for a list of all supported configuration parameters.
configuration = datadog_api_client.v1.Configuration(
    host = ""

# The client must configure the authentication and authorization parameters
# in accordance with the API server security policy.
# Examples for each auth method are provided below, use the example that
# satisfies your auth use case.

# Configure API key authorization: apiKeyAuth
configuration.api_key['apiKeyAuth'] = os.getenv('DD_CLIENT_API_KEY')

# Configure API key authorization: appKeyAuth
configuration.api_key['appKeyAuth'] = os.getenv('DD_CLIENT_APP_KEY')

# Enter a context with an instance of the API client
with datadog_api_client.v1.ApiClient(configuration) as api_client:
    # Create an instance of the API class
    api_instance = aws_integration_api.AWSIntegrationApi(api_client)
    body = AWSAccount(
            "key": True,
    ) # AWSAccount | AWS Request Object

    # example passing only required values which don't have defaults set
        # Create an AWS integration
        api_response = api_instance.create_aws_account(body)
    except datadog_api_client.v1.ApiException as e:
        print("Exception when calling AWSIntegrationApi->create_aws_account: %s\n" % e)

Unstable Endpoints

This client includes access to Datadog API endpoints while they are in an unstable state and may undergo breaking changes. An extra configuration step is required to enable these endpoints:

configuration.unstable_operations["<OperationName>"] = True

where <OperationName> is the name of the method used to interact with that endpoint. For example: list_log_indexes, or get_logs_index

Documentation for API Endpoints and Models

Documentation for API endpoints and models can be found under the docs subdirectories, in v1 and v2.

It's also available on readthedocs.

Documentation for Authorization

Authenticate with the API by providing your API and Application keys in the configuration:

configuration.api_key["apiKeyAuth"] = "YOUR_API_KEY"
configuration.api_key["appKeyAuth"] = "YOUR_APPLICATION_KEY"
