If you find CockroachDB’s insecure mode too limiting, Jack Wallen is here to help you deploy the same cluster in secure mode only, so you can better manage your databases.
Recently I walked you through the process of deploying a CockroachDB cluster to meet your NoSQL needs. However, you may have quickly discovered that you cannot create users with passwords in this setup. While it might be fine for testing purposes, you probably don’t want to deploy a passwordless database server for production.
I now want to show you how to deploy CockroachDB in safe mode. Once deployed in this way, you can assign passwords to users (which should be considered an absolute must in production environments).
So, without further ado, let’s unleash the power of a secure CockroachDB cluster.
