View and edit databases
To view the details of a database, select it from the database list:
Sign in to the Redis Cloud admin console.
Choose Databases from the menu.
If you have a single subscription, this displays a list of databases.
When you have more than one subscription, the database list is organized by subscription.
Here, the second of three subscriptions is selected.
Select the database from the list.
If you have more than one subscription, select the subscription and then select the database.
This opens the View Database screen.
The View Database screen lets you review the configuration details of a database, graphs showing performance metrics, and a “slowlog” of recent actions.
When the View Details screen first appears, it defaults to the Configuration tab, which displays the following details:
|Subscription||The name of your subscription. By default, this shows a unique integer ID number followed by a string description the subscription settings. You can change this by editing your subscription.|
|Protocol||The protocol of the database, either Redis (default) or Memcached.|
|Used Memory||The amount of memory used by database.|
|Replication||When enabled, described replication settings|
|Activated On||Timestamp showing the date and time the database was created, using the default timezone associated with the deployed region.|
|Last Changed||Timestamp showing the last update to the database.|
|Endpoint||(fixed plans only) URI identifying the public endpoint and port for the database.|
|Public Endpoint||(flexible plans only) URI identifying the public endpoint and port for the database.|
|Private Endpoint||(flexible plans only) URI identifying the private endpoint and port for the database.|
|Database Clustering||(flexible plans only) Summary of current clustering policy.|
|OSS Cluster API support||(flexible plans only) Whether the API is enabled or not.|
|Data Persistence||When enabled, describes the current persistence algorithm.|
|Access Control & Security||Current user password, if any.|
|Redis Version Compliance||Core Redis version compatibility version.|
|Data Eviction Policy||Current data eviction policy.|
|Periodic Backup||Backup settings, if any.|

Other actions and info
The icons along the top of the View Database screen let you perform actions and report status:
|Edit the database|
|Delete the database. Note: you have to empty a database before you can delete it.|
|(Replica databases only) Data is syncing to other databases.|
|The database is active and available for input.|
|The database is being updated and is not available for input.|
The View Database screen also has tabs that let you view:
Metrics: a series of graphs showing database performance over time.
Slowlog: a log showing recent actions for your database. The log displays when the action started, the duration, the complexity of the operation, and any parameters passed to the operation.
Edit a database
When you edit a database, certain fields cannot be updated, especially those that might lead to data loss.
You can change the following details:
Whether the database allows password access or uses role-based access control (RBAC).
The Data Eviction policy
Email alert settings
If you need to change other details, create a new database and then migrate existing data.
