CloudBeaver Documentation


AWS Overview

AWS Marketplace

You can subscribe to CloudBeaver EE in the AWS Marketplace here:

There is a one-month trial period.

IAM/EC2 installation

After launching EC2 instance based on CloudBeaver IAM, open the page http://EE2_IP/ where EE2_IP is the IP address of your new EC2 machine.
On the first page you will see server configuration wizard.

You can connect to your EC2 instance using SSH. You need to specify the SSH keypair during the EC2 instance launch. You can use the user name ubuntu to connect.

Docker image

Besides the AWS marketplace, you can run CloudBeaver AWS from the docker image.
In this case, you will need to specify a license during product configuration. A license can be purchased at website.

Docker images:

  • dbeaver/cloudbeaver-aws:latest - latest release build.
  • dbeaver/cloudbeaver-aws:dev - latest developer build.
  • dbeaver/cloudbeaver-aws:[version] - image of exact version of CloudBeaver AWS.

To install just run the command:

sudo docker pull dbeaver/cloudbeaver-aws:latest

To run CloudBeaver in the terminal:

sudo docker run --name cloudbeaver --rm -ti -p 8080:8978 -v /var/cloudbeaver/workspace:/opt/cloudbeaver/workspace dbeaver/cloudbeaver-aws:latest


If you install CloudBeaver AWS from AWS Marketplace, you don't need a license, as it is part of the Marketplace agreement.
If you install it from the docker image, then you need to purchase a license.


If you installed CloudBeaver AWS from Marketplace but it still asks for a license, then it may be a result of problems with EC2 metadata service availability. This may happen if your AWS policy requires the use of IMDSV2 and restricts the use of IMDSV1.
As CloudBeaver runs in a Docker container, it has a different IP address and can't connect to the EC2 metadata service IMDSV2. Thus, it can't be determined that it was run from the Marketplace installation.

Solution: run docker container with parameter --network host. Thus, CloudBeaver will have the same IP address and can access EC2 metadata.

Cloud explorer

You can use an embedded Cloud Explorer in order to find and add existing AWS databases:
