Where can I find Client Certificate so as to be able to connect to Managed Postgre Instance using Pgadmin

DigitalOcean Managed PostgreSQL Database

I am completely new to cloud server and to PostgreSQL.
I would like to setup a SSL Connection with PostgreSQL managed database on Digital Ocean.
I downloaded the CA certificate. However, when I try to use the CA certificate to connect to the instance externally using Pgadmin, it also asks for a CA key.
I am not aware as to where to find this key.
Please support or kindly explain, if I have understood something wrongly in this.

Hi there @gauravmjoshi,

I’ve just tested this, what you need is the following, under the SSL section specify:

  • Set the SSL mode to Required

  • You need to download your CA certificate and add it under the Root Certificate section

  • You can also set the SSL compression to Yes

I can confirm that I was able to connect with the details above.

The version of Pgadmin that I used was v4.20.

Hope that this helps!
