Connecting to Azure Cache for Redis Instance from RedisInsight

In this post, let's see how we can connect to Azure Cache for Redis Instance from RedisInsightRedisInsight is a free tool that provides an intuitive and efficient UI for Redis and Redis Stack and supports CLI interaction in a fully-featured desktop UI client.

In Azure, I have created an Azure Cache for Redis Instance (with a Public Endpoint for simplicity) and copied the connecting string which is as follows.


Now let's start.

The first step is, of course, from RedisInsight click on ADD REDIS DATABASE. And then fill in the wizard as follows.

Configure Database Connection

You need to fill up the following,

  • Host
  • Port
  • Database Alias (this can be anything)
  • Password
  • Use TLS
And then do a Test Connection. It should come up as follows.

After verifying the connection, click on Add Redis Database.

Once it's added, click on the database. Now you can easily visualize the data in your Redis Database as well as you have a CLI at your disposal.
