Firewall: how to whitelist an App so it can connect to a Droplet?

Hi!

I have an App that uses a Droplet as a resource.

To firewall the droplet, I need to know the IP address that the app uses when it connects to the droplet.

How do I find out what the app’s IP address is so I can use it in a firewall rule?

Thanks!

Hey @richardkasperowski,

At the moment, you can only do that with the App platform and a managed database cluster. You can’t do this with a Droplet as the App Platform does not come with a static IP address.

It looks like someone has had the same idea before and has posted it on our Product Ideas board. The best thing to do would be to head over and add your vote to it, as well as adding any additional information in the comments for exactly what you’d like to see implemented!

Hope that helps!
