DBAs and application developers with appropriate privileges manage database properties such as storage allocation, database name, and backup and configuration templates, and manage settings such as auto-vacuum, write-ahead log (WAL), and checkpoint frequency.

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 such as checkpoints and data vacuuming. You can view, but cannot change, database properties such as the UUID and connection string.

Right-click the database name and select Properties. The dialog box contains the following tabs.


The Basic tab contains basic information about the database, including its name, JDBC connection string, UUID, storage and point-in-time recovery allocation, version, and tags. You cannot change the database name, JDBC connection string, or the UUID. You can add a new dbowner account from the Basic tab.

DB Configuration

The DB Configuration tab shows the database configuration settings and their values, such as the number of vCPUs, CPU memory, priority, and reservation, connection limits, IO and WAL settings, and checkpoint and auto-vacuum settings. If you have appropriate privileges, you adjust the database configuration settings from the DB Configuration tab.


The Backup tab shows the database backup settings and their values. When you create a database, you choose a backup template. If you have appropriate privileges, you can adjust or override the backup settings from the Backup tab.
