All deployments have a Settings view. This covers configuration of the deployment's database, including special actions specific to that database type as well as a number of common controls.

Change Version

The first panel on any Settings view is the Change Version panel. If there are upgrades available to the deployment's database, it will be displayed here along with a selector to choose which upgrade and a confirmation button to enact that update.

If there is no update available, the current version number is displayed with confirmation that it is the latest available version.

Deployment Information

Displayed below the Change Version panel is the Deployment Information panel. The fields found in this section are for your internal business use.


Deployment Information text fields.

The Billing code field may be used for the department, budget, or other administrative information your organization needs to keep track of this specific deployment's cost. Billing code information entered here can also be used to group deployments together on the Deployments page, to easily see all the databases in your account with the same billing code.

Notes is a free-text area where administrators can append a note to a database deployment. Typical uses include noting the use of the database, what data is contained in it, or details of the applications that use the database. As it is free-text, enter whatever information needed and click Create Notes to overwrite the current saved note with a new note.

The text entered in these two fields will appear on the Deployment Overview page in the Compose UI.

The Compose API allows applications to create, manage, scale and backup database deployments on Compose. To select which deployment an API call should work on, a deployment id is required. This value is discoverable through the API, and is also displayed in the settings page in the API panel.

Delete Deployment

At the bottom of the Settings page there is a button that will delete your deployment.

Deleting a deployment cannot be undone

Make sure you have backed up any data that you might want from this deployment.

You will need to verify the deployment name and possibly re-authenticate in order to delete the deployment.

Database Specific Settings

Some database types have additional settings that can be configured from the Settings panel. Documentation on these settings can be found in database specific help pages.
