Can App Platform access droplets resources?


I have just started using App Platform and it works really great! But I was wondering can apps access resources in droplets using private IP?

For example, I would like to host a CockroachDB cluster with droplets, but I would like to access it from the App Platform.

Hello @alanko0511,

There is no private connection between Droplets and App platform. If you’d like to establish a connection, it should be via a public interface.

Hope this helps!

Hey @alanko0511,

I believe that the App Platform can access Droplets over the public interface but not really via the private one. But this sounds like a great idea!

The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.

Hope that helps!

- Bobby.
