How to install Datadog Cliente at Digital Ocean App Platform

I am looking forward to use Datadog APM service. To do that, I need to install Datadog client on my app platform, but I can’t since sudo command are unavailable. How can I install the Datadog client in my server on the App Platform?

Hey @joaopedrocorrea14,

The logs should be forwarded to Datadog as long as the endpoint is correct for your location. The agent shouldn’t need to be installed as it is already included in app platform. I’d recommend opening a ticket to our support team and they can take a look further.

Hope it helps! Nate

Hello,

This should be available out of the box on the App Platform. You can follow the steps here on how to enable it:

Alternatively, if you need to install custom packages on the App Platform, the best way to do that is to have a Dockerfile as per the instructions here:

Let me know how it goes. Best, Bobby
