SpiceDB Dedicated Configuration

This guide provides information about the configuration options available to you when deploying a SpiceDB Dedicated Permissions System.

Configuration Options

Permissions System Type

permissions system type

Please select the choice (Production or Development) that is appropriate for the Permissions System you are deploying. This choice will not effect the performance or security of your Permissions System, but may impact your Permissions System in the future, so please choose appropriately.


datastore configuration

Your SpiceDB Dedicated environment can be provisioned with multiple isolated datastores. If you have more than one, choose the datastore that is appropriate for the Permissions System you are deploying.

Update Channel

channels config

SpiceDB Dedicated has two update channels: rapid and regular . You can select the update channel when you launch the Permissions System or in the settings page after you’ve launched it.

rapid - gets every release that is not a release candidate.

regular - trails behind rapid by at least one release.

After you’ve deployed your Permissions System, you can choose to keep up to date with a channel automatically, or you can “pin” to a version by un-checking the automatic updates box. If you uncheck the automatic release box, you’ll still be able to update, but will have to pick the next version manually.

Rollout Strategy

rollout strategy

There are two rollout strategies: rolling update and immediate.

  • rolling update is a zero downtime strategy for upgrading to a new version. This is recommended for prod Permissions Systems.
  • immediate involves downtime, but is faster than rolling update.

Define Cluster(s)

define clusters

Single region deployment

If you are deploying a single region Permissions System, define a single cluster.

Multi-region deployment

Define a cluster for every region you want to deploy into.

Cluster Class

For production clusters, we recommend selecting the Cluster Class with the largest number of replicas and processing units. For non-production clusters, you can select whatever Cluster Class is appropriate for your workload. If you have questions about your overall utilization or would like to provision a custom Cluster Class, please reach out to your AuthZed account team.
