Creates a new bucket. Allows creation of Couchbase, Ephemeral, and Memcached buckets, and supports the various configuration parameters for these buckets.
Specifies the hostname of a node in the cluster. See the HOST FORMATS section for more information on specifying a hostname.
- --username <username>
Specifies the username of the user executing the command. If you do not have a user account with permission to execute the command then it will fail with an unauthorized error.
- --password <password>
Specifies the password of the user executing the command. If you do not have a user account with permission to execute the command then it will fail with an unauthorized error. If this argument is specified, but no password is given then the command will prompt the user for a password through non-echoed stdin. You may also specify your password by using the environment variable CB_REST_PASSWORD.
- --bucket <name>
The name of the bucket to create. The only characters that can be used for the bucket-name are those in the ranges of A-Z, a-z, and 0-9; plus the underscore, period, dash, and percent characters. The name can be a maximum of 100 characters in length.
- --bucket-type <type>
The type of bucket to create. Accepted bucket types are "couchbase", "ephemeral", and "memcached". The Couchbase bucket is the standard bucket type. It supports data persistence, replication, caching, indexing, views, and N1QL queries. The Ephemeral bucket is an in-memory bucket similar to the Couchbase bucket; but it does not support data persistence or views. The Memcached bucket is a cache-only bucket that does not support persistence, replication, indexing, views, or N1QL querying: this bucket type provides the same behavior as Memcached Server.
- --bucket-ramsize <size>
The amount of memory to allocate to the cache for this bucket, in Megabytes. The memory quota of this bucket must fit into the overall cluster memory quota. The minimum cache size is 100MB.
- --bucket-replica <num>
The number of servers to which data is replicated. Replicas provide protection against data loss by keeping copies of this bucket’s data on multiple servers. By default, the number of replicas is one, even if there is only a single server in the cluster. The minimum number of replicas is zero, and the maximum three. This option is valid for Couchbase and Ephemeral buckets only.
- --bucket-priority <priority>
Specifies the priority of this bucket’s background tasks. This option is valid for Couchbase and Ephemeral buckets only. For Couchbase buckets, background task-types include disk I/O, DCP stream-processing, and item-paging. For Ephemeral buckets, background task-types are the same as for Couchbase buckets, with the exception of disk I/O, which does not apply to Ephemeral buckets. The value of this option may be "high" or "low". The default is "low". Specifying "high" may result in faster processing; but only when more than one bucket is defined for the cluster, and when different priority settings have been established among the buckets. When Couchbase and Ephemeral buckets have different priority settings, this affects the prioritization only of task-types other than disk I/O.
- --bucket-eviction-policy <policy>
The memory-cache eviction policy for this bucket. This option is valid for Couchbase and Ephemeral buckets only.
Couchbase buckets support either "valueOnly" or "fullEviction". Specifying the "valueOnly" policy means that each key stored in this bucket must be kept in memory. This is the default policy: using this policy improves performance of key-value operations, but limits the maximum size of the bucket. Specifying the "fullEviction" policy means that performance is impacted for key-value operations, but the maximum size of the bucket is unbounded.
Ephemeral buckets support either "noEviction" or "nruEviction". Specifying "noEviction" means that the bucket will not evict items from the cache if the cache is full: this type of eviction policy should be used for in-memory database use-cases. Specifying "nruEviction" means that items not recently used will be evicted from memory, when all memory in the bucket is used: this type of eviction policy should be used for caching use-cases.
- --enable-flush <num>
Specifies whether or not the flush operation is allowed for this bucket. To enable flushing, set this option to "1". To disable flushing, set this option to "0". By default, flushing is disabled.
- --enable-index-replica <num>
Enables view index replication for the current bucket. This option is valid for Couchbase buckets only. To enable, set the value of this option to "1". To disable, set the value of this option to "0". By default, view index replication is disabled. There may be at most one replica view index.
- --conflict-resolution <type>
Specifies this bucket’s conflict resolution mechanism; which is to be used if a conflict occurs during Cross Data-Center Replication (XDCR). Sequence-based and timestamp-based mechanisms are supported.
Sequence-based conflict resolution selects the document that has been updated the greatest number of times since the last sync: for example, if one cluster has updated a document twice since the last sync, and the other cluster has updated the document three times, the document updated three times is selected; regardless of the specific times at which updates took place.
Timestamp-based conflict resolution selects the document with the most recent timestamp: this is only supported when all clocks on all cluster-nodes have been fully synchronized.
- --max-ttl <seconds>
Specifies the maximum TTL (time-to-live) for all documents in bucket in seconds. If enabled and a document is mutated with no TTL or a TTL greater than than the maximum, its TTL will be set to the maximum TTL. Setting this option to 0 disables the use of max-TTL and the largest TTL that is allowed is 2147483647. This option is only available for Couchbase and Ephemeral buckets in Couchbase Enterprise Edition.
- --compression-mode <mode>
Specifies the compression-mode of the bucket. There are three options; off, passive and active. All three modes are backwards compatible with older SDKs, where Couchbase Server will automatically uncompress documents for clients that do not understand the compression being used. This option is only available for Couchbase and Ephemeral buckets in Couchbase Enterprise Edition.
Off: Couchbase Server will only compress document values when persisting to disk. This is suitable for use cases where compression could have a negative impact on performance. Please note it is expected that compression in most use cases will improve performance.
Passive: Documents which were compressed by a client, or read compressed from disk will be stored compress in-memory. Couchbase Server will make no additional attempt to compress documents that are not already compressed.
Active: Couchbase Server will actively and aggressively attempt to compress documents, even if they have not been received in a compressed format. This provides the benefits of compression even when the SDK clients are not complicit.
The create bucket command is asynchronous by default. Specifying this option makes the operation synchronous: so that the command returns only after the bucket has been fully created.
When specifying a host for the couchbase-cli command the following formats are expected:
It is recommended to use the couchbase://<addr> format for standard installations. The other two formats allow an option to take a port number which is needed for non-default installations where the admin port has been set up on a port other that 8091.
To create a Couchbase bucket named "travel-data" with a memory cache size of 1GB, run the following command.
$ couchbase-cli bucket-create -c 192.168.1.5:8091 --username Administrator \ --password password --bucket travel-data --bucket-type couchbase \ --bucket-ramsize 1024
To create a Couchbase bucket named "airline-data" with a memory cache size of 1GB, two data replicas, high background-task priority, full eviction, flushing enabled, and view index replication enabled, run the following command.
$ couchbase-cli bucket-create -c 192.168.1.5:8091 --username Administrator \ --password password --bucket travel-data --bucket-type couchbase \ --bucket-ramsize 1024 --bucket-replica 2 --bucket-priority high \ --bucket-eviction-policy fullEviction --enable-flush 1 \ --enable-index-replica 1
To create a Memcached bucket named "travel-data" with a memory cache size of 1GB, run the following command.
$ couchbase-cli bucket-create -c 192.168.1.5:8091 --username Administrator \ --password password --bucket travel-data --bucket-type memcached \ --bucket-ramsize 1024
To create an Ephemeral bucket named "hotel-data" synchronously, with a memory cache size of 256MB, flushing enabled, "nruEviction", and timestamp-based conflict resolution, run the following command.
$ couchbase-cli bucket-create -c 192.168.1.5:8091 --username Administrator \ --password password --bucket hotel-data --bucket-type ephemeral \ --bucket-ramsize 256 --enable-flush 1 --bucket-eviction-policy nruEviction \ --conflict-resolution timestamp --wait
Specifies the username to use when executing the command. This environment variable allows you to specify a default argument for the -u/--username argument on the command line.
Specifies the password of the user executing the command. This environment variable allows you to specify a default argument for the -p/--password argument on the command line. It also allows the user to ensure that their password are not cached in their command line history.
