Compose Database-as-a-Service Help and Documentation

Everything you need to know about Compose, Hosted or Enterprise, is here in our help system. Whether you run one database for your businesses' sole application or six different databases to support an entire corporation, we've got the information you need.

Data Browsers


One feature of the Compose UI is the ability to administrate your databases from Compose console, a web application that is accessible anywhere. As well as general database management, the Compose console has data browsers, customized to the particular databases. Each database's data browser allows you to manage and administer the data stored on those databases. The capabilities of the data browser vary for each database type.

If a deployment type has a data browser it can be accessed by viewing the database and clicking on Browser in the right-hand sidebar.
