Stuck in Free-Tier

Hi guys,

I have an index in the free-tier which recently ran full. I wanted to modify the index but had to upgrade to the Standard plan first.
After upgrading, I’m stuck with my free-tier and can’t modify any of the settings.

Am I missing something?

Thanks already,

Hi @norbert1

the project your index is in is still in “Free tier”. I think you will have to create a new Project and in that project an index that will not be free tier and you will be able to modify it.

Hope this helps

Hmm, that is annoying. I was expecting an upgrade path that would allow me to continue using the index.

Do you know of any source that talks about data migration?
I was searching in the docs but didn’t find much.

Hmm I don’t think the data migration over projects is supported in any way. There are hacky ways where you fetch all the vectors and then upsert them into a new index, but its messy imo.

What I would hope that would be one day possible is project independent collections where collections created would not be linked to a specific project. At the time I don’t think this is so.

If you have the Free index full (thats around 100k vectors?) the easiest and fastest way (not the cheapest) is to just run the process again and fill the new index.

Long story short. No there is sadly no clean or easy way to migrate your data from one index to another over different projects.
