live replication to managed postresql

We are migrating an existing DB to Managed PostgreSQL.
Is it possible to use Logical Replication (Publish/Subscribe) or WAL streaming to keep the Managed Postgres instance in sync with the remote DB until we complete the switch?

Hi Jkirkham!

Thanks for your question. This functionality is not currently supported, but we are actively investigating a solution to simplify migrating existing database instances to our Managed Database service. The best way to keep apprised of the progress for a feature request like this is to submit or follow a related idea in the ideas portal:
