  1. Open data source properties. You can open data source properties by using one of the following options:

    • Navigate to File | Data Sources.

    • Press Ctrl+Alt+Shift+S.

    • In the Database Explorer (View | Tool Windows | Database Explorer), click the Data Source Properties icon The Data Source Properties icon.

  2. On the Data Sources tab in the Data Sources and Drivers dialog, click the Add icon (The Add icon) and select CockroachDB.

  3. At the bottom of the data source settings area, click the Download missing driver files link. As you click this link, DataGrip downloads drivers that are required to interact with a database. The IDE does not include bundled drivers in order to have a smaller size of the installation package and to keep driver versions up-to-date for each IDE version.

    You can specify your drivers for the data source if you do not want to download the provided drivers. For more information about creating a database connection with your driver, see Add a user driver to an existing connection.

  4. From the Authentication list, select an authentication method.

    • pgpass: by using the PGPASS file. You can store this file in the user's home directory (for example, /Users/jetbrains/.pgpass). You can read more about the password file in The Password File at postgresql.org.

    • User & Password: by using your login and password.

  5. Specify database connection details. Alternatively, paste the JDBC URL in the URL field.

    To delete a password, right-click the Password field and select Set Empty.

  6. To ensure that the connection to the data source is successful, click the Test Connection link.

Step 1. Creating an instance and getting credentials

  • As soon as you create an instance of CockroachDB Serverless at cockroachlabs.cloud, you will see a connection string with credentials needed for the IDE.

    You can call this dialog later again, but it does not contain your password. Be sure to copy it as you create an instance.
