Hey @ronaldschmitt,

Indeed this is not possible at the time being but this is a great idea, sounds like it’d be super useful!

It looks like someone has had the same idea before and has posted it on our Product Ideas board. The best thing to do would be to head over and add your vote to it, as well as adding any additional information in the comments for exactly what you’d like to see implemented!

What you could do is use a Managed database, which comes with a way to integrate with the App Platform and add security restrictions:

Hope that helps!
