I’m looking to restrict the access of my Managed Database to only App Platform but it appears that we can’t actually, or I am missing something ?

This is a very high security issue !

Hi there,

I believe that this is not possible yet, but the DigitalOcean App Platform team has it on their roadmap.

If you wish, you can upvote the idea here so that it gets preoritize:




App Platform applications do not have a persistent IP address. Due to dynamic nature of the App, you will not be able to add any confined IP address to your Managed Database trusted source at this point.

We have this on our roadmap. Refer to below community question for more details:
