Create a CockroachDB Cloud account

On this page Carat arrow pointing down

Before you create a CockroachDB Cloud cluster, you must first create a CockroachDB Cloud account. You can register for CockroachDB Cloud using a GitHub, Google, or Microsoft account or an email address and password.

Note:

If your organization uses Cloud Organization SSO, you may be able to sign in without registering or waiting to be invited. Check with a console admin. If you sign in using a URL other than https://cockroachlabs.cloud, Cloud Organization SSO is enabled for your organization.

Choose an authentication method

You may authenticate to CockroachDB Cloud console using an email and password, or with Single Sign-on (SSO). The console supports SSO provided by GitHub, Google, and Microsoft, as well as identity providers with support for OIDC or SAML protocols..

SSO provides security benefits. This includes not having to manage an additional credential, and perhaps most importantly, that SSO providers support multi-factor authentication (MFA). For best security, we recommend that all CockroachDB Cloud users authenticate with SSO, with MFA enabled.
