Hi there,

I remember a similar question that was asked here.

Basically, you would need to pass the CA certificate to your application as an environment variable.

You can refer to the CA_CERT variable which holds the CA certificate for the Managed databases.

For more information on how to use the environment variables on the App platform, I could suggest taking a look at the official documentation here:

Hope that this helps.

Regards,

Bobby
