Question

Restrict db access to app (app platform)?

I’m using the new app platform and a mongodb. The trusted sources field says “Search for… Apps and tags…”, but when I enter my app name “authanon” it doesn’t find anything.

Hello @ChrisAckerman ,

We just flipped the feature of Trusted Sources on MongoDB. You should be able to enable them now.

Hope this helps!

Hi @ChrisAckerman,

Right now support for the Database Trusted sources are only available for other Managed Database like Postgres, Mysql, and Redis in the App Platform. It is also mentioned in our release notes.

Add the App Platform App as a Trusted Source in the Managed Databases
