How to add my DigitalOcean App as a trusted resource for my Managed Database

I have signed up for the Managed Database for Postgreql. Now I have also signed up for a DigitalOcean App and selected the Managed Database as the database.

There was a message telling me that I have restricted access to the database and that I should turn off this restriction.

Instead of turning it off, how can I simply add the App as a trusted resource for the database?

Just want to add a +1 to this request. I understand the App Platform has floating IPs but restricting access to a managed database from an App is a pretty important security issue.

I would just like to add that we’re interested in trying out DO Apps platform but we would need to connect to a DO managed database from our apps.
