Question

Naming trusted sources

Posted January 5, 2022 108 views
DigitalOcean Managed MySQL Database

When whitelisting trusted sources for a managed database you can add clusters by name or add ip addresses.

Is it possible to create a list of IP addresses + their identifier on account level (eg. “John’s home network” => 185.170.12.12 ) and then we could select John’s home network when adding new trusted sources to a managed DB.

With this feature it would be more readable to know which trusted sources are still needed + which IP is what. (eg. when working from home some people need a whitelist but if one gets fired how do we know which IP was linked to his homenetwork?)

Thanks!

Hey @pieterjan,

I believe that as of the time being this is not possible, but sounds like it’d be super useful!

The best thing to do to get your voice heard regarding this would be to head over to our Product Ideas board and post a new idea, including as much information as possible for what you’d like to see implemented.

Hope that helps!
