Adding Datadog APM Tracing to Bloomreach CMS


We are currently using the Bloomreach version 12.6.26 and we would like to add DataDog Tracing to our application. Our Bloomreach application sits on a ECS instance and we use the CMS in a headless way, serving the content to other teams via REST endpoints.

Does anyone know if it is possible or if it was done on other installations, to add DataDog APM Tracing to the Bloomreach CMS when it is used on a headless way? My understanding is that it is possible to add it on a microservice architecture, but I do not know if this is possible for our architecture.


I have no experience with DataDog, but a very quick glance at their documentation and I don’t see a reason why it wouldn’t work. It somewhat depends on what you allow on your instances, ie you need to be able to open ports I believe. It wouldn’t work on our cloud, for example, as you wouldn’t have the necessary access. Being headless has no effect on whether you can use this.
