Manage Cluster Credentials (Console)

In Zilliz Cloud, a cluster credential consists of a username and password pair, utilized to authenticate and authorize your requests for cluster interaction.

Overview

When setting up a cluster, Zilliz Cloud creates the default cluster user db_admin with the Admin role, granting full cluster access.

Beyond the default db_admin user, you can also add and manage additional cluster users, with various built-in roles for access control:

  • Admin: Full control over the cluster and associated resources.

  • Read-Write: Permission to read, write, and manage collections and indexes within the cluster.

  • Read-Only: Viewing rights for most cluster resources, but no creation, modification, or deletion capabilities.

Explore Cluster Built-in Roles for details.

The Zilliz Cloud web UI provides a simplified and intuitive way of creating and managing user credentials.
