How to set timeout to 0 in Redis Managed Database?


With using redis-cli, setting the timeout to 0 is as simple as running the command config set timeout 0. However, trying to do the same in Redli gives error. Is it possible to manually set this timeout in a DO Redis Managed Database?

Best regards,

Hi @dekev

We set timeout value to 300 seconds by default for Redis Managed database. This is configurable parameter. If you would like to have the timeout modified, just let us know the desired value (valid values are from 0 (disable) to 60 * 60 * 24 * 365 seconds) by opening the support ticket. We would modify the timeout value as per the request in support ticket.

As of at least 2022-04-13, this is now possible through the API. Here’s a relevant support response:

Our engineering team has made an update to change database configuration on the managed database cluster. You should now be able to change cluster configuration via API.

For your reference, you can follow the below document on API :
