Modules add additional functionality to your databases for specific use cases. You can add modules to the database when you create the database.

Create a database with a module

  • Before you add a module to a database, we recommend that you upgrade the module to the latest version.
  • Modules can be added to a database only when creating a new database. You can’t add a module to an existing database.
  • After you add a module to the database, certain database fields for the database are disabled according to the supported capabilities of the module.

To add modules to a database:

  1. Go to: databases

  2. Click Add and create database

  3. Configure the database settings.

  4. In the Redis Modules field, click Add:

    1. Select the module that you want to add.
    2. If you want the module to use a custom configuration, click Add configuration and enter the optional custom configuration.
      • RediSearch - You can find the configuration options in the RediSearch documentation.

      • RedisGraph - You can specify the number of threads to distribute the RediSearch queries to: THREAD_COUNT X

        By default, the thread count is the same as the number of cores on the node.

      • RedisTimeSeries - You can find the configuration options in the RedisTimeSeries documentation.

    3. Click Save.

    Here it is in action:

    You can repeat these steps to add additional modules to the database.

    RediSearch 1.x and RediSearch 2.x are not supported for use in the same database.
  5. Click Show advanced options and enter a port number for the database, such as: 12543.

  6. Click Activate.
