Database Installation

ROQ offers a managed database service that can be used even for local development requirements. By default, ROQ provides managed PostgreSQL as a database solution, which can be used as is or you can set up your own database locally. If you prefer to use PostgreSQL locally or any other database, please refer to the documentation below for further guidance.

The database URL is set in the environment variable DATABASE_URL. You will find the database variable and other required environment variables on the ROQ Console Get Started page or Application Details page.


To integrate ROQ's generated application with a PostgreSQL database, please refer to this guide on installation and usage.


You can integrate your ROQ-generated application with the MongoDB database. Check out this guide on how to use the generated application with MongoDB Atlas.
