How to connect to managed database from App Platform using private endpoints?

I am trying to connect to managed database from App Platform using private endpoint but it’s failing. App is already in trusted sources. Droplet is able to access but app platform is not. Everything is in same region as well.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi there,

Indeed, apps deployed on App Platform are not connected to VPC networks.

All connections from apps to other services running on DigitalOcean occur over the public network, including connections between apps and DigitalOcean Managed Databases.

This is listed under the network limitations here:

What I could suggest is to use the public endpoint with trusted sources enabled.
