How to make use of managed pg-pool in App platform?

Am I seeing correctly that it is not possible to make use of pg-pool from the managed database in app platform? I keep on getting “connection error”.

I see similar issue with managed redis, where it only works after explicitly attaching it to the app.

Hi there,

If you have Trusted Sources enabled for your database you would need to make sure that your app is actually added to the trusted sources list as described here:

This would explain why you might be seeing that connection error for your Redis instances.

Regarding the connection pools, note that DigitalOcean currently does not support trusted sources with MongoDB or Postgres connection pools.
