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.

+1 Looking forward to this feature!

Apps cannot currently be added as Trusted Sources to Managed Databases. We are working on this but do not have a public timeline on when this feature will be available.

Is there an update on this issue? It is very critical for our release schedule too.

+1 and also looking forward to this feature

+1 It’s a basic security feature that should be ready asap. Btw the tag “app-platform” is already selectable as trusted source but the connections between app platform apps and managed databases don’t work if selected.
