Question

IP my Digital Ocean App

I required ip address of my server for MongoDB Atlas whitelist. I don’t see it in control panel.

I’ve tried:

  1. Ping host on my pc and getting this ip.
  2. By console on DO App control panel and python interpreter, like this:
from requests import get

ip = get('https://api.ipify.org').text
print('My public IP address is:', ip)

This 2 methods returns 2 differences ip address. Unfortunately, neither of them doesn’t work with Atlas MongoDB.

P.S. My app is in docker file.

Hi michaldev,

We currently don’t provide external IP addresses for apps in App Platform.

To use MongoDB Atlas with App Platform today, you’ll have to add the CIDR block 0.0.0.0/0 to your access list entries in MongoDB Atlas. Make sure that you have strong credentials, since this will allow access from anywhere.

Best, Moises
