Deleting a database is just as easy as creating one. Make sure that you are truly done with the database, as once you delete the database it cannot be recovered (except from your backups).

Note: only users that are defined as Owners on the Redis Cloud Pro account can delete a database.


  1. Navigate to the Databases page from the Redis Cloud Pro menu
  2. Click on the database you want to delete from the list of your databases.
  3. Click on the trash can icon next to "View Database."
  4. A window is shown asking if you really want to delete your database. Click "Delete."
  5. You are taken back to the main Databases page. The database, all of its data, and configurations is now deleted.

Note: It is considered best practice that you create a backup of your database before deleting it.
