Retool does not support connecting to Redis on Google Cloud Platform.
All users for Retool organizations on Free or Team plans have global Edit permissions and can add, edit, and remove resources. If your organization manages user permissions for resources, you must be a member of a group with Edit all permissions.
To create a Redis resource, you need:
- Authentication credentials for the Redis instance, if your instance uses protected mode.
- Firewall rules that allow Retool to access your Redis instance.
Allow Retool to access Redis
If Redis is behind a firewall, you must allow access from Retool's IP addresses. Add the IP addresses to your firewall's Allowlist before you create the resource.
1. Create a new resource
Sign in to your Retool organization and click the Resources tab. Click Create new > Resource to start configuring your Redis resource.
2. Select the resource type
Retool can connect to almost any API or database, and has built-in integrations for popular data sources. Select the Redis resource type.
3. Configure the resource
Specify a name and location for the Redis resource. Retool displays the resource name and type in query editors to help users identify them. Next, configure the required settings.
|Host||The URL or IP address.|
|Port||The port number.|
|Database number||The database number.|
|Password||The database password. This is required if your Redis instance uses protected mode.|
|Use SSL/TLS||Connect to your database with SSL/TLS.|
|Enable SSH tunnel||Enable SSH tunneling through bastion host.|
Click Test Connection to verify that Retool can connect to Redis. If the test fails, check the resource settings and try again. Testing a connection only checks whether Retool can successfully connect to the resource. It cannot check whether the provided credentials have sufficient privileges or can perform every supported action.
4. Wrap up
You can now select your newly-created Redis resource from the Resource dropdown in the query editor.
