Create a Couchbase Cloud Account

    +
    You need to create a Couchbase Cloud account to start using Couchbase Cloud to manage your data.

    To start using Couchbase Cloud, the first thing you’ll need to do is create a Couchbase Cloud account. Every person that uses the Couchbase Cloud service must have a Couchbase Cloud account.

    Methods for Creating an Account

    There are two ways to create a Couchbase Cloud account:

    1. Sign up for a new account at the Couchbase Cloud website

      Use this method if you’re the first person within your organization to use Couchbase Cloud.

      Refer to Sign up for a New Account below for instructions.

    2. Receive an invitation to join Couchbase Cloud

      You’ll use this method if an existing Couchbase Cloud user invites you to an organization that they have already set up.

      Refer to Accept an Invitation to Join Couchbase Cloud below for instructions.

    Sign up for a New Account

    1. Request access.

      At this time, you must request access to Couchbase Cloud before you can create your account. Fill out the form on the following website to request access: https://www.couchbase.com/products/cloud

    2. Go to cloud.couchbase.com, and under the login fields, click Sign Up Here.

    3. Provide your account details.

      Enter the following information to create your account:

      • Full Name

      • Email Address

      • Password

    4. Review the Couchbase Cloud Services Agreement.

    5. Click the checkbox to accept the Couchbase Cloud Services Agreement.

    6. Click Sign Up to create your account.

    7. Set up your company account.

      Since you’re signing up individually (as opposed to being invited to an existing organization) you’ll be asked to set up a company account, also known as an organization.

      Provide the following information to set up your organization:

      • Company Name

        This will be the name of your organization.

      • Website (optional)

      When you create an organization in Couchbase Cloud, your account is automatically added to that organization and assigned the Admin role.

    8. Confirm your account.

      An email will be sent to you asking you to confirm your email address. Once you click the confirmation link, your account will be confirmed and you’ll be able to sign into Couchbase Cloud.

      If you don’t see the invitation email in your inbox within a few minutes, make sure to check your spam or junk folder.

    Once your account has been confirmed, you can use your credentials at cloud.couchbase.com to log into the Couchbase Cloud UI. When you log in for the first time, you’ll be brought to the Dashboard of the organization you just created.

    Accept an Invitation to Join Couchbase Cloud

    If an existing Couchbase Cloud user invites you to their organization, you will receive an email inviting you to create a new Couchbase Cloud account. (If you already have a Couchbase Cloud account under the same email address, you will instead receive an email inviting you to join the new organization.)

    1. Open your invitation email, and click Confirm email.

      If you don’t see the invitation email in your inbox, make sure to check your spam or junk folder.

    2. Provide your account details.

      Provide the following information to create your account:

      • Full Name

      • Password

    Once your account has been confirmed, you can use your credentials at cloud.couchbase.com to log into the Couchbase Cloud UI. When you log in for the first time, you’ll be brought to the Dashboard of the organization you were invited to.
