Is it possible to use Cloud Firewall with an app deployed on App Platform? I was reviewing options to deploy an internal app that is restricted to a list of allowed IPs.

It doesn’t seem to be an option from what I could tell, but was wondering if I am missing something? If it’s not an option is this something that would be a candidate for a future feature?

This functionality isn’t currently available, but we are exploring options for offering dedicated egress IPs which would facilitate cloud firewall functionality.

  • Thanks @cbaker! So just to confirm I am looking for an ingress firewall for my app on App Platform, and your investigation into egress static IPs is tied to this feature?

    • Ahh sorry @MitchellCash. It’s not currently possible to apply filter rules for ingress. For services, you may be able to implement this yourself by creating a middleware which examines the “do-connecting-ip” HTTP header. We will consider offering this functionality in the future.
