DataGrip 2023.1 Help

PostgreSQL

  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 PostgreSQL.

  3. Check if there is a Download missing driver files link at the bottom of the data source settings area. 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.

  7. (Optional) If you are connecting to a data source that contains a lot of databases and schemas, in the Schemas tab, select the schemas that you need to work with.

  8. Click OK to create the data source.

  9. Find your new data source in Database Explorer.

    • To write and run queries, open the default query console by clicking the data source and pressing F4.

    • To view and edit data, use Data editor.

    • To learn how to work with database objects in DataGrip, see Database objects.
