Creating a Cloud Account

    A Redis Cloud cloud account which runs on your cloud infrastructure needs all necessary credentials and information of your cloud account. This cloud account enables Redis Cloud to create, manage, and monitor Cloud resources automatically on your behalf. Once a cloud account is set up you can reuse it with several subscriptions. Create a new Cloud Account To create a Redis Cloud cloud account, please select Cloud Accounts from the right side menu.

    View and Edit a Cloud Account

    To view or edit your existing cloud accounts please select Cloud Accounts from the right side menu. Select the relevant Cloud Account and click on that account's Edit button. In edit mode please enter or update the following details: Account Name - Give the account a name so you could recognize him AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID - Redis Cloud user's AWS access key AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY - Redis Cloud user's AWS secret key AWS Console User - Redis Cloud AWS UI console user AWS Console password - Redis Cloud AWS UI console user's password IAM Users sign-in link - This is the link you use to log into the AWS console (e.

    AWS Zone Mapping for Redis Cloud Essentials

    To get top performance from your Redis Cloud Essentials database, you want to match the AWS availability zones of your application to your Redis Cloud Essentials database. Note - If you have a Multi-AZ subscription, you do not need to map AWS zones. AWS zone mapping is not yet supported for Redis Cloud Pro and Ultimate. Why Do Zone Mapping? As you probably know, the Amazon AWS cloud infrastructure is divided into regions across the world and Availability Zones (AZ) inside each region.

    Creating an AWS User

    Redis Cloud automatically manages your cluster and provisions instances when needed. In order for Redis Cloud to be able to manage AWS resources, you must have an AWS account that is separate from your AWS application account and a user on that separate AWS account. Within that new AWS account, you need to create an instance role and a user with a specific policy. The user requires both UI console access and an Access Key so that Redis Cloud can programmatically create and manage AWS resources on your behalf.

    Flushing Databases

    There are times where you want to delete all database data. Warning - The flush command deletes ALL of the data in the database. This includes all data in memory and persisted to disk. We recommend that you backup your database before you flush the data. flushall for Redis Cloud Databases You can flush a database from the command line with the redis-cli command or with your Redis client.

    Importing Data Into Your Database

    You can import an existing dataset into your Redis Cloud instance from an existing Redis server or an RDB file. In order to import a sharded database that has multiple RDB files you must first merge the files into a single RDB. For assistance, contact support. Note - Expired keys are not imported. As a result, the number of keys in the source and destination databases can be different after the import is complete.

    Member of Multiple Accounts

    You can be a member of multiple accounts in Redis Cloud. For example, if you created your own account and your company has arranged its subscriptions into multiple accounts (Dev, Test, and Prod) that you are a member of. When you open the Redis Cloud menu, you see a menu like the screenshot below. When you click on the arrow, you see all of the accounts you are a member of and you can switch between the accounts.

    Using flush_all for Memcached Cloud

    Follow the instructions below to use flush_all. flush_all for SASL Protected Memcached Enterprise Cloud Databases If your resource has SASL authentication enabled, you can't use nc command or telnet to run flush_all on your Memcached Enterprise Cloud resource.
