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 the Aiven for PostgreSQL service name for which you want to create a new database.

  2. In your service's page, select Databases from the sidebar.

  3. In the Databases page, select Create database.

  4. In the Create a new database window, enter a name for your database into the Name field, and select Add database.

    The new database is visible immediately.


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