Get value from a list of datadog tags using advanced integration fields


Hi all!

My monitoring tool send a bunch of tags which is encapsulated in the field {{dd_tags}}.

For example it sends: 

"Datadog Tags": "Service:Appname, Team:Teamname" (tags found log)

When I use {{dd_tags}} in the advanced integration, it shows all the tags and values beautiful in the alert. But I want to have the value of a certain tag as a field (extra propertie), so I can use it for other things.

For example, add the property "Service" and put "Appname" as a value for that property.

But it can't find a way to do that. {{dd_tags}} works for a field, but when I try other things, like:

{{dd_tags.extract(/service: (\S+)/) }}

none of this works. What am I doing wrong?


So I want these tags as separate properties:

Hi @Bart Scheltinga ,

With the tag you shared above, Team:MVP , I believe you can use string processing or regex to extract the MVP value into an extra property:

You might want to try testing with a few like:

  • {{ dd_tags.substringBetween("Team:",",") }}
  • {{ _payload.dd_tags.substringBetween("Team:",",") }}
  • {{ dd_tags.extract(/Team:(\S+)/) }}
  • {{ _payload.dd_tags.extract(/Team:(\S+)/) }}


Hope this helps! Let us know if any other these work.

For context as well - I did some testing on a Jira integration (since I do not have a DD instance) - but used some similar tags.


The issue with using something like {{dd_tags.get(0)}} - will only pull the first tag in the list alphabetically. So there might be inconsistency using the .get since this could change.

For example with 1 and 2 above - those pull the first two labels that are listed in the payload alphabetically:



So string processing and regex might be better options. For example with numbers 3, 4 and 5 in my first screenshot, those pulled these values:



Some of the other examples you shared:


^ I don't believe these would work since the tags are parsed as lists, and these would be used more for arrays.

{{dd_tags.extract(/service: (\S+)/) }}

^ You might be misspelling service, have some case-sensitivity issue, or adding an extra space after service:


Again, hope this helps with troubleshooting! Let us know if you run into any other questions, issues, etc.

Thanks so much for you extensive answer @Nick H 

I'm not sure why it was not working in the first place, I thought I tried all of the possible options. Maybe Atlassian was having a bad day. or it was the case sensitivity. But the good news is, it is working now! ;-)

{{ dd_tags.substringBetween("Service:",",") }} <- Did the trick!
