Please follow the below steps to connect Postgres Managed database as the data source for google data studio
Make sure you have OpenSSL installed on your operating system. OpenSSL will be used to generate client-side public/private key pairs.
Select “Data Sources” on the left followed by the blue (+) on the bottom right corner to add a new data source. Please follow the next set of prompts to agree to google terms and conditions.
Select “PostgreSQL” as the data source type on the left and proceed to “Authenticate” DigitalOcean PostgreSQL. Follow the next set of steps to authenticate with your Google account.
Under the “Basic” settings, input the values for host, port, database, username, and password. (Note: these values can be obtained from the DigitalOcean console)
Remember to enable SSL for over-the-wire encryption of data and enter the cert and key files.
Finally, click “Authenticate” to authenticate with the DO PostgreSQL database server.
After authentication with the database, you can proceed to query data from it
I hope this helps!
Note: the private key should be in PKCS8 format, so if you have supplied rsaprivkey.pem; you will get the below error.
“Please make sure that the private key is in PKCS8 format. Error ID: 8dc032ae”
Add PostgreSQL SSL Client Configuration Files as below :
Server certificate: ca-certificate.crt
Client certificate: rsapubkey.der
Client private key: rsaprivkey.der
I hope this helps!!
For MySQL, refer to the below link :
Will suggest trying without “Enable SSL”.
