Third party tools
Because YugabyteDB is compatible with PostgreSQL and Cassandra, you can use third-party clients to connect to your YugabyteDB clusters.
To use these tools with YugabyteDB, you should have a cluster up and running, and you will need to know the connection parameters required by the client to connect to your cluster.
To create a local cluster, follow the steps in Quick start.
To create a cluster in YugabyteDB Managed, follow the steps in Create a cluster. In addition, do the following:
- Download the cluster certificate; YugabyteDB requires the use of TLS
- Add your computer to the cluster IP allow list; this allows your computer to access the cluster
To connect, follow the client's configuration steps, and use the following values:
|Setting||Local installation||YugabyteDB Managed|
||The cluster hostname as displayed on the cluster Settings tab|
|Database||Database name (
||Database name (
||Database username (
Leave blank if authentication is not enabled
|Database user password|
YugabyteDB Managed requires TLS. Use the root.ca certificate you downloaded for connections to YugabyteDB Managed clusters.
