If you no longer use a direction connection endpoint or want to perform operations that are not supported in direct connection mode, you can release the direction connection endpoint to disable the direct connection mode. For example, release the direction connection endpoint before you change configurations or upgrade a major version.


  • A direction connection endpoint is available. For more information, see Apply for a direction connection endpoint.
  • The direction connection endpoint configured in the application is changed to another available endpoint. For example, the internal endpoint in proxy mode.
    Warning After a direction connection endpoint is released, the client cannot use it to connect to the ApsaraDB for Redis cluster. We recommend that you change the connection configuration in your application before you release the direction connection endpoint.


  1. Log on to the ApsaraDB for Redis console.
  2. In the top navigation bar of the page, select the region where the instance is deployed.
  3. On the Instances page, click the ID of the instance.
  4. In the left-side navigation pane, click Connection.
  5. On the Connection Management page, click Release Endpoint on the right side of Direct Connection.
