DBAs and application developers with appropriate privileges manage database properties, such as storage allocation, database name, backup and resource templates, and database parameter groups.

Database properties and settings control how the database operates. You can manage and adjust certain settings, such as resource allocation, database connection limits, and whether and how often to perform automatic tasks. You can view, but cannot change, database properties such as the UUID and connection string.

General

General properties include basic information about the database. You cannot change the database name, connection string, or the UUID. See Edit General Database Properties in this chapter. If you have Manage administrator accounts privileges, you can configure OS remote access settings or add a database administrator account.

Resources

Database resource properties include the number of vCPUs, memory size, priority, reservation, and so on. If you have Edit resource settings privileges on the database, you can modify resource settings, or click Edit to select a resource template. See Edit Database Resource Settingsin this chapter. See also Managing Database Templates.

Parameters

Parameters include database engine aware settings. If you have Edit Settings privileges on the database, you can modify parameters or choose from available parameter groups. See Managing Database Templates

Backup

When you create a database, you choose a backup template. If you have Edit backup settings privileges on the database, you can edit backup settings and select a template. See Edit Database Backup Settings in this chapter. See also Managing Database Templates.

Cloning

With Clone Administration privileges, you can define clone access policy for the database and specify post-clone scripts. See Cloning Databases.

SSL

With Edit Settings privileges, you can import key files, load certificates, and regenerate keys. See Managing SSL Keys and Certificates.

IP Whitelists

With Manage IP whitelists privileges, you can edit connections to the database by allowing all connections or allowing connections only from selected IP whitelists. You can create custom IP whitelists or select an organization IP whitelist. See IP Whitelists.

Automatic Refresh

For cloned databases, you can set the schedule to automatically refresh the database to the latest state of the source database. See Clone a Database.
