Currently, with MongoDB-managed databases; it will be necessary to not have any trusted sources enabled. This would be necessary to be able to have your app connect to MongoDB. We understand this isn’t ideal and we hope to have this addressed soon.

You will have to connect the Mongo DB on a public network, without any restrictions imposed on it.

And, there is a similar question which we have addressed in our Community regarding How to set up MongoDB Managed Database (with cert) with App Platform, which can provide you with more information and guidance.

I hope this helps.
