Buckets and Clusters

  • concept
    The Couchbase C SDK provides an API for managing a Couchbase cluster programmatically.

    The primary means for managing clusters is through the Couchbase Web UI which provides an easy to use interface for adding, removing, monitoring, and modifying buckets. In some instances you may wish to have a programmatic interface. For example, if you wish to manage a cluster from a setup script, or if you are setting up buckets in test scaffolding.

    The SDK also comes with some convenience functionality for common Couchbase management requests — see the Provisioning Cluster Resources guide.
