Create a free-tier solution

TigerGraph Cloud free-tier solutions (subject to limits) offer a small-scale analytics platform to store and query your graph data.
Free-tier solutions are for training, learning, and light scale proof of concept (POC) use cases and do not support backup and restore. For in-depth POCs, consider adding a valid payment method and use paid-tier solutions to access the backup and restore feature.

1. Click My Solutions.

After logging in, you will be directed to the dashboard page, on the right side of the page, click My Solutions.

2. Click Create Solution.

On the My Solutions page, click Create Solution.

3. Select TigerGraph version.

Not all TigerGraph versions that are offered on-prem are offered on TigerGraph Cloud. In the dropdown list, choose the version of TigerGraph you want to run.

4. Select a starter kit.

TigerGraph Cloud Starter Kits are built with sample graph data schema, dataset, and queries focused on a specific use case to help you get started quickly. Most of our starter kits have a demo video that walks you through the schema and the queries built for its use case. If you wish to proceed with your own schema and data, select Blank.
After you have selected a starter kit, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click Next.

5. Select Cloud Provider and instance type.

Currently, TigerGraph Cloud supports free-tier solutions on AWS and GCP. Select AWS or Google Cloud as your cloud provider and select TG.Free as your instance type.

7. Select disk size.

Select 50 GB for your disk size. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click Next.

8. Enter a name and a tag for your solution.

You can enter any name for your solution. A solution name may contain alphanumerics, dashes, underscores, and spaces, and cannot be longer than 20 characters. A solution tag can be no longer than 40 characters and can contain any character.

9. Set initial password.

This is the initial password for the default TigerGraph user tigergraph. You can change the password later in Admin Portal.
This initial password allows you to log into the database when your solution is in the ready state. If you forget this password, you will need to terminate and recreate the solution.

10. Enter a subdomain and description.

Customize the subdomain for your solution. If this field is left blank, a random subdomain will be automatically generated for the solution.
Enter an optional description of what your solution will be used for, and click Next.

11. Confirm your settings.

Confirm your settings and click Submit. You will be redirected back to the My Solutions view, and your solution will be ready in minutes.

Log in to GraphStudio

After you have created your solution, it may take a few minutes for it to be ready. Once you see the status of your solution turn to "Ready", you can proceed to log into GraphStudio.

1. Open GraphStudio for your solution.

Go to My Solutions. Find the solution that is ready, click the blue Applications icon, and Click GraphStudio.

2. Enter your credentials.

Enter the initial password set during Create Solution for the default database user tigergraph and click Login. This is not your TigerGraph Cloud account email and password.
