Kong Gateway 3.6.x
Fixed a bug where the plugin wasn’t triggered for serviceless routes.
The Datadog plugin is now always triggered, and the value of tag name(service_name) is set as an empty value.
Kong Gateway 3.3.x
The host configuration value is now referenceable.
Kong Gateway 3.1.x
Added support for managing queues and connection retries when sending messages to the upstream with
the queue_size,flush_timeout, and retry_count configuration parameters.
Kong Gateway 2.7.x
Added support for the distribution metric type.
Allow service, consumer, and status tags to be customized through the configuration parameters service_name_tag, consumer_tag, and status_tag.
Kong Gateway 2.6.x
The host and port configuration options can now be configured through the environment variables KONG_DATADOG_AGENT_HOST and KONG_DATADOG_AGENT_PORT.
This lets you set different destinations for each Kong node, which makes multi-DC setups easier, and in Kubernetes, lets you run a Datadog agent as a DaemonSet.
