Same here, it should be supported

It should be possible to whitelist an App Platform app in some way.

It could be by introducing a static IP address or, similar to what DigitalOcean has done with trusted sources for connections from the App Platform app to managed databases.

Why did DigitalOcean not implement at least the same feature for Droplets so that you can add App Platform apps as trusted sources to Droplets?

Hello @drkimpatrick ,

App Platform applications do not have a persistent IP address. Due to dynamic nature, there is no confined IP address that is dedicated for App Platform.

Refer to the limitations on the product:
