Create additional PostgreSQL® databases

Once you’ve created your Aiven for PostgreSQL® service, you can add additional databases, whether for security purposes or to isolate your data per application.

To create a new PostgreSQL® database:

  1. In the Aiven Console, on the Services page, click on the Aiven for PostgreSQL service name for which you want to create a new database.

  2. Select the Databases tab:

    1. Enter a name for your database.

  3. Click Add database on the right hand side of the console.

    The new database will be visible immediately.

Tip

You can also use the Aiven client or the PostgreSQL client to create your database from the CLI.
