Question

Is communication between App Platform and Managed Database encrypted?

I see that Managed Database clusters offer SSL, but does that also mean if I deployed a backend service via App Platform and used that to communicate to a Managed Database that the traffic would be encrypted?

Hello,

Yes, with the Managed MongoDB instances, you get End-to-end security. Data is encrypted at the media level while at rest, and with SSL during transit:
