Hi there,

As of the time being the App Platform does not come up with a static IP address, so you would need to open up your Droplet to accept connections from anywhere.

There is an idea already submitted for this which you could upvote here:

In the meantime, whenever possible I would suggest using a managed database as those can be secured using the trusted sources:

Best,
