View cluster details

This page describes how to view detailed information about an AlloyDB cluster.

Before you begin

  • The Google Cloud project you are using must have been enabled to access AlloyDB.
  • You must have one of these IAM roles in the Google Cloud project you are using:
    • roles/alloydb.admin (the AlloyDB Admin predefined IAM role)
    • roles/owner (the Owner basic IAM role)
    • roles/editor (the Editor basic IAM role)

    If you don't have any of these roles, contact your Organization Administrator to request access.



  1. In the Google Cloud console, go to the Clusters page.

    Go to Clusters

  2. Click a cluster in the Resource Name column.
  3. In the Overview page that opens, view the detailed information about your cluster.


To use the gcloud CLI, you can install and initialize the Google Cloud CLI, or you can use Cloud Shell.
