TiDB Cloudin Google Cloud Marketplace, subscribe to TiDB Cloud, and then follow the onscreen instructions to set up your TiDB Cloud account.
Once you log in to the TiDB Cloud console, you have a default project. When there is only one project in your organization, your cluster will be created in that project. For more information about projects, see Organizations and projects.
If you are an organization owner, you can rename the default project or create a new project for the cluster according to your need as follows:
Log in to the TiDB Cloud console, and then click in the lower-left corner.
Click Organization Settings.
The Projects tab is displayed by default.
Do one of the following:
- To rename the default project, click Rename in the Actions column.
- To create a project, click Create New Project, enter a name for your project, and then click Confirm.
To return to the cluster page, click the TiDB Cloud logo in the upper-left corner of the window.
If you are in the
Organization Owner or the
Project Owner role, you can create a TiDB Dedicated cluster as follows:
Navigate to the Clusters page of your project.
Click Create Cluster.
On the Create Cluster page, select Dedicated, and then configure the cluster information as follows:
Choose a cloud provider and a region.
Configure the cluster size for TiDB, TiKV, and TiFlash (optional) respectively.
Update the default cluster name and port number if necessary.
If this is the first cluster of your current project and CIDR has not been configured for this project, you need to set the project CIDR. If you do not see the Project CIDR field, it means that CIDR has already been configured for this project.
Confirm the cluster and billing information on the right side.
If you have not added a payment method, click Add Credit Card in the lower-right corner.
Your TiDB Cloud cluster will be created in approximately 20 to 30 minutes.
After your cluster is created, take the following steps to configure the security settings:
In the upper-right corner of your cluster overview page, click ... and select Security Settings.
Set the root password and allowed IP addresses to connect to your cluster, and then click Apply.
After your cluster is created on TiDB Cloud, you can connect to it via the methods provided in Connect to Your TiDB Dedicated Cluster.
