Datadog: HTTP 429 errors during terraform plan operations

I am using v2.2.0 of the terraform datadog provider and have started (October 30, 2020) to encounter HTTP 429 response codes from the datadog API during terraform plan operations. (v0.12.5 of terraform)

The errors do not occur 100% of the time, but are happening often enough to be disruptive to our operations.

I wanted to create a topic here, just in case others are encountering this issue. I will upgrade the provider to the latest version. If this fails to work, I will need some guidance about capturing the requests being sent to the datadog API so that i can provide information about these to the datadog support team.

On advice from DataDog support, this was a transient issue on this day (October 30, 2020) that has now been resolved.
