Connect a CouchDB resource
Learn how to connect your CouchDB database to Retool.
Retool supports specifying your CouchDB's credentials through username and password.
Allow Retool to access CouchDB
If CouchDB 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 navigate to the Resources tab. Click Create new, then select CouchDB.
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 CouchDB resource type.
3. Configure the resource
Specify a name and location for the CouchDB resource. Retool displays the resource name and type in query editors to help users identify them. Next, configure the following settings.
|Host||The URL or IP.|
|Port||The port number.|
|Database username||The name of the database user.|
|Database password||The password of the database user.|
|Use SSL/TLS||Connect to your database with SSL/TLS.|
|Enable SSH tunnel||Enable SSH tunneling through bastion host.|
Your CouchDB resource is now ready to use. To interact with CouchDB data, select the resource in the query editor.
