Databases enable you to store and manage data in a structured way. They are a fundamental part of most applications and are used to store information such as user data, application data, logs, and more.

Genezio offers on demand databases that are provisioned through our partners. This means that you can create a database in a few seconds without having to worry about the infrastructure, scalability or maintenance of it.

Supported Databases

We support the following databases:

  • PostgreSQL (provided through Neon)
  • MongoDB (coming soon)

How to create a database

To create a database you can navigate our dashboard, go to the Databases page and click on the Create Database button.

Alternatively, you can select a project, choose "Database" from the left-side menu and click on the Create Database button.

Using the database

Once the database is created, you have two options to use it:

  • Directly: You can use the credentials provided to connect to the database and start using it. To gather them, press the Connect button corresponding to the database you want to use.


    This is useful when you want to inspect/modify the database using a database client such as psql, DBeaver or TablePlus.

  • Through a Genezio project: You can create a project and link the database to it. Click on the project you want to add the database to and click on the Database button on the sidebar. Here you can link a previously created database to the project or create a new database. This way you can use the database in your project without having to worry about the credentials. The connection URL can be accessed by your application through an environment variable that has the following format: ${DATABASE_NAME}_DATABASE_URL.


    For example, if you linked a database named purple-capybara to your project, the environment variable name will be PURPLE_CAPYBARA_DATABASE_URL and it's value will be set to the database connection URL.
