Question

Not able to connect to managed postgres database through connection pool

I can connect to my managed database directly, but when I try to connect to through the connection pool I get the following error.

dbpool=> \c defaultdb FATAL: no such database: defaultdb Previous connection kept

I have the pool set for the user and the database, but it still doesn’t work. Do I need to set special permissions or something to use the pool?

Accepted Answer

I figured it out, you just have to name the pool the same as the database you are trying to connect to.
