Welcome to the Vertica Community Forum!


  • All site visitors may view the forum and its discussion threads. However, to post in the forum we ask that you register an account.
  • To register click the 'Register' button found on the homepage. Insert your preferred email address and select a username and password.
  • Note: Your username will be visible to other forum users and cannot be changed.


  • To manage notifications for your account select your avatar in the top right corner of the page.

  • The Vertica Forum has four categories: General Discussion, Tips from the Team, Product Feedback, and Archived Posts.
  • Select 'Categories' from the side panel to view descriptions.


  • Tags are keywords that can be used to describe the product, the problem you're having, or the type of post you're writing.
  • We strongly encourage the use of tags and recommend that you use at least three tags when posting.
  • Popular tags can be found in the left sidebar, and when you click on a tag you are interested in, you will be brought to a page of related posts.

  • Every badge has point value ranging from 5 point to 50 points.
