Create YSQL extensions in Yugabyte Cloud
Extend the functionality of your cluster using PostgreSQL extensions. YugabyteDB comes bundled with a number of extensions that are tested to work with YSQL. For a list of bundled extensions, refer to Pre-bundled extensions.
Before using an extension, you must load it in the database using the CREATE EXTENSION command. For example:
CREATE EXTENSION fuzzystrmatch;
In Yugabyte Cloud, extensions can only be loaded by users that are a member of the
yb_extension role. All
yb_superuser users, including the default admin user, are members of
GRANT statement to assign the role to users. For example, to grant the
yb_extension role to
user, use the following command:
yugabyte=# GRANT yb_extension TO user;
For more information on roles in Yugabyte Cloud, refer to Database authorization in Yugabyte Cloud clusters.

You cannot install new extensions in Yugabyte Cloud.
