How to open cloud firewall port only for app platform?

Hello together,

I am using the app platform the first time and for some additional components like elasticsearch I have set up a droplet. Now I want to secure up my droplet, that only my application from the app platform can access it over defined ports.

How can I add the app platform as trusted source?

Hey there!

Unfortunately app platform doesn’t yet support Cloud Firewalls. The IP address of your app is also dynamic and can change on deploy. You could still allow it through your droplets firewall but it would have to be updated anytime the app’s IP changed. We are hoping to have other options to achieve this in the future but don’t currently have a timeline for it.

Hope it helps! Nate
