Prisma data proxy does not work with Digital Ocean App Platform Trusted sources?

Hi my app consists of Nodejs, Prisma, Postgres. I’m trying to see why when I use the prisma data proxy(connection pool) on deploy app platform says Error: P1001: Can’t reach database server but I entered the static ip addresses and myapp in the trusted sources. So does trusted sources not work with any connection pool?

Hi there,

Is your Prisma service deployed on the App Platform itself? If this is the case, it should be OK to use it as a proxy as the connections would be coming from the App Platform itself and should be accepted by the Postgres instance. Does it work if you disable the trusted sources?

On a side note, if you have trusted sources enabled, access to your database will not be available during build time.
