Hi I am using the digital ocean managed database, but I wanna be able to host more then one database, for more then one application at once, for security I want to restrict each database to a specific user and then add that user to the particular application, How can I do that in the database management portal?
If it’s not possible is there any workaround for me to get similar functionality? my goal is that in case one of my applications gets hacked they should only get access to that particular database and not all the others
