Question

Will App Platform apps run on a dedicated IP?

Dynamic IPs can make it difficult to whitelist

This seems to be a glaring issue with the App platform… If we cannot lock our DB / Redis down to IP how can we secure our other systems?

Is there an IP range that will be assigned?

I wonder if you can’t use the job framework after a successful deploy to curl the public IP address.

Would love to know if the will be a future solution to this or not! Would influence my decision of using App Platform over Droplets.

Same Request here!

App Platform components have dynamic IPs that change during every deployment.

Unfortunately this means that for database connections and other whitelisting purposes you can’t rely on IP addresses.

Given this, App Platform cannot connect to a database that has restricted connections or trusted sources configured, even if that database is managed by DigitalOcean. This is because App Platform components have dynamic IPs that change during every deployment and so cannot be used for defining trusted sources.

Hello all,

We now have this feature of Trusted sources on App Platform. Refer to below link for more insights:

Hope this helps!
