Accessing CouchDB
How to access Budibase's underlying database, CouchDB
This applies to self-hosted deployments only
Budibase uses CouchDB to store:
  • Metadata about your apps and deployment
  • Data stored when using Budibase's in-built tables
  • Audit logs
You have full access to CouchDb, via Fauxton - the official CouchDB client.
You may access Fauxton via the URL: your-budibase-host/db/_utils/#
However, you will need a username and password to log in. You may find these in your .env file, which lives in the same directory as your docker-compose.yaml.
Use the following values from your .env file:
  • COUCH_DB_USER
  • COUCH_DB_PASSWORD
