Spendflo's integration with Datadog brings a new dimension to your monitoring and observability workflows, providing a direct path for license management within the Spendflo App. This integration offers a seamless experience for monitoring Datadog licenses, user access, and optimizing license management processes.


  • Real-time License Insights:
    The Datadog integration in Spendflo delivers real-time insights into license usage. Identify users who might not be actively utilizing Datadog, empowering administrators to fine-tune license distribution.

  • Effortless License Allocation:
    Administer Datadog licenses seamlessly from the Spendflo App. Ensure users have access tailored to their roles and responsibilities without navigating multiple interfaces.

  • User Access Control:
    Deactivate Datadog users directly from Spendflo, streamlining access management. This feature is especially useful for promptly revoking access for users no longer part of the team or those who no longer require Datadog access.

  • Harmonized HR Integration:
    Pair Spendflo with HR systems to collectively identify departed employees. This integration streamlines the process of deactivating Datadog licenses for those who have left the organization.


Users managing the integration need Datadog administrator privileges for seamless setup and configuration.
