Bugs are inevitable in software, and they cannot be avoided. However, when the bugs show up during the release phase (when customers start using the product), it affects not only the customers but also the testing team and developers. What you can do, however, is minimize your chances of introducing bugs into your product by using a bug tracking and collaboration tool.
These tools make it easier for the teams to share information, streamline processes, and identify and resolve issues before they become problems.
At LambdaTest, we believe in enabling a seamless bug tracking power for our beloved users. Therefore, we have partnered with Datadog – a modern cloud monitoring & security platform to enable smooth issue reporting and collaboration among teams.
By integrating Datadog with LambdaTest, you can log bugs/tasks directly from LambdaTest to your Datadog instance from the middle of your test session, empowering your teams to collaborate on issues and perform cross browser testing more efficiently.
What is Datadog?
Datadog is a cloud-based monitoring and analytics platform. It provides performance metrics for infrastructure and cloud services and event monitoring. Datadog can also monitor tools, databases, and servers. It supports various technologies like Google Cloud, Amazon Web Services, Red Hat, etc.
Datadog’s Error Tracking feature lets you track errors and crashes of your web, mobile, and backend applications. It provides teams with a logical framework for troubleshooting errors in their applications. In addition, Error Tracking reduces noise by gathering individual errors into issues, allowing teams to better assess their errors’ impact.

How LambdaTest + Datadog can help you?
With LambdaTest and Datadog integration, you can purchase a LambdaTest subscription through the Datadog Marketplace. Then, once your LambdaTest account is set up (or if you are already a LambdaTest customer), you can go to the Datadog integration tile to feed data into Datadog. In order to integrate the Datadog App with LambdaTest, you need to provide the Datadog API Key and Datadog App Key and get started.
Further LambdaTest integration with Datadog allows you to perform one-click bug logging while performing live testing of your websites on an online browser farm of 3000+ real browsers and OS combinations. You can push issues from the LambdaTest platform to your Datadog instance in a single click and collaborate faster on cross browser compatibility issues.
In Datadog, LambdaTest auto includes information from the testing environment, like browser, browser version, operating system, resolution, comments, and screenshots.
In addition, you can also view all your Test Analytics from LambdaTest on Datadog Dashboards. The Test Analytics includes Browser Usage, OS Usage, Real Device Usage, Number of tests per day, Pass/Fail Rate, etc. You can also create your own dashboards to track metrics based on your requirements.
Datadog provides easy-to-understand metrics that make data consumption simpler and more accessible.
Hope this LambdaTest-Datadog integration will make you and your team even more productive. At LambdaTest, we are continuously working to bring more third-party integrations onboard to streamline your collaboration and testing workflows.
