Redis - Creating New User


I need to create new user(s) for Redis cluster but API documentation states that “User management is not supported for Redis clusters.”.

It is also not possible to create user via doctl.

test@testubuntu:~$ doctl databases user create ***** testuser
Error: POST***/users: 422 (request "***") operation is not supported for this cluster type

Why is it not possible to create a new user in Redis where it is possible in PostgreSQL, MySQL, etc… ?

Hey @gokhancag,

Indeed, user management is not supported for Redis clusters as of the time being.

The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.

Hope that helps!

- Bobby.
