Set up Redis service

Redis is an optional, backend cache solution that replaces the Zend Framework Zend_Cache_Backend_File, which is used in Magento 2 by default.

We support Redis versions 3.2 and 5.0. See Configure Redis.

You can use the following instructions for service setup on Magento Commerce Cloud Pro Integration environments and Starter environments, including master branch. You must submit a support ticket to configure the service on Pro Production and Staging environments. See Services.

To enable Redis:

  1. Add the required name and type to the .magento/services.yaml file.
1
2
  myredis:
      type: redis:<version>

To provide your own Redis configuration, add a core_config key in your .magento/services.yaml file:

1
2
  cache:
      type: redis:<version>
  1. Configure the relationships in the .magento.app.yaml file.

    runtime:
        extensions:
            - redis
    
    relationships:
        redis: "redis:redis"
    
  2. Add, commit, and push your code changes.

    1
    
    git add -A && git commit -m "Enable redis service" && git push origin <branch-name>
    
  3. Verify the service relationships.

Using the Redis CLI

Assuming your Redis relationship is named redis, you can access it using the redis-cli tool.

  1. Use SSH to connect to the Integration environment with RabbitMQ installed and configured.

  2. Open an SSH tunnel to a host.

    redis-cli -h redis.internal
