OpenSearch Limits

OpenSearch is an open-source search and analytics suite which serves as a centralized location to manage logs forwarded from other resources, such as databases and Droplets.

Managed Database Cluster Limits

  • By default, you are limited to 10 clusters per account or team. If you reach this limit but need to create more clusters, you can submit a request to increase the limit by clicking Request Increase on the window that shows when you attempt to create another cluster.

  • You cannot delete the default database and user.

  • VPC networks are only available to resources, accounts, and teams in the same region as the VPC network.

  • You cannot currently add DigitalOcean Cloud Firewalls to a database cluster’s trusted sources.

  • By default, clusters only support up to 200 IP addresses as trusted sources. Different types of resources add varying numbers of IP addresses to your cluster. For example, Droplets typically have two IP addresses, one public and one private, both of which count towards the 200-address maximum. To add more than 200 IP addresses, contact support.

  • You cannot migrate databases from clusters inside of DigitalOcean to other clusters inside of DigitalOcean using the online migration feature.

OpenSearch Limits

  • You cannot currently manage users on Managed OpenSearch. You only have access to the doadmin user generated when you create a new OpenSearch cluster.

  • Managed OpenSearch currently does not support index management.

Known Issues

Managed Database Cluster Known Issues

  • Point-in-time-recovery (PITR) operations are limited to the last 7 days. The date picker doesn’t restrict you from choosing an earlier date; you receive an error if you try to recover from a date outside of the 7-day window.

  • You can’t use DigitalOcean’s Cloud Firewalls with managed databases. Until support is available, you can restrict access to nodes by their incoming IPv4 addresses. You can also add Droplets and other resources by their names or tags to a cluster’s trusted sources.
