For this integration to work you will need to have the Datadog RUM (Real User Monitoring) tag on all the pages of your site.
Please go to the section How to request an integration to see the instructions to enable this integration. You can then return here once completed.
In order to use the full integration, please provide your Contentsquare CSM or support team with your DataDog login domain, for example: app.datadoghq.eu or app.datadoghq.com. There are other options also. This will allow you go from the Contentsquare session replay to the relevant DataDog session. See usage instructions below.
If you have already completed the step above then continue below.

Link from Contentsquare to DataDog
Assuming you have already provided Contentsquare with the DataDog login domain, you can then check if the link from Contentsquare session replays works to DataDog by going to any replay session that was captured after the integration was enabled and do the following in the very first pageview of the session.
Click the 3 dots then Show variables
You will then see this popup. Click the DVAR tab and find the APM_DD_Session Link key which contains a link to DataDog. You can click Copy value and paste into your browser to open it. In the future this URL will be clickable.
