This page provides information for connecting your application to your Redis database and using queries to manage its content.

Connect Redis


Appsmith does not support connection to Redis using TLS. If you are a cloud user, you should whitelist the IP address of the Appsmith deployment and on your database instance or VPC before connecting to a database. If you're using Redis Cloud, you can see Configure CIDR allow list for more details.

Connection parameters

The following section is a reference guide that provides a complete description of all the parameters to connect to a Redis database.

Configuring a Redis datasource.

Host Address

The network location of your Redis database. This can be a domain name or an IP address.


The port number to connect to on the server. Appsmith connects to port 6379 by default if you do not specify one.

Database Number

The number that identifies which database on your Redis instance you're connecting to. This is a number between 0 and 15, and is 0 by default.


The username for your Redis user.


The password for your Redis user.

Query Redis

The following section provides examples of creating basic CRUD queries for Redis.

Configuring a Redis query.
Configuring a Redis query.

See the Redis documentation for a full list of Redis commands and how to use them.

Fetch data

HGETALL {{ SearchInput.text }}

In the above example, SearchInput is the name of an Input widget being used to collect a user's search term and send it in the query. The HGETALL command returns all keys and values of a Redis hash with a matching name if it exists.

To store a single key not in a hash, use GET:

GET {{ SearchInput.text }}

Insert data

HSET user:{{ EmailInput.text }} username {{ UsernameInput.text }} gender {{ GenderDropdown.selectedOptionVaue }}

In the above example, EmailInput, UsernameInput, and GenderDropdown are the names of Input and Select widgets being used to collect user input and send it in the query to create a Redis hash.

To insert a single key/value pair not in a hash, use SET:

SET username {{ UsernameInput.text }}

Update data

See Insert data above, as the syntax is identical using the HSET and SET commands.

Delete data

HDEL user:{{ EmailInput.text }} {{ FieldDropdown.selectedOptionValue }}

In the above example, EmailInput and FieldDropdown are the names of Input and Select widgets being used to collect user input that identifies which field of a given Redis hash to delete, and to send them in the query.

To delete the entire Redis hash or a single key/value pair, use DEL:

DEL user:{{ EmailInput.text }}
