Overview of Connecting Database Integrations

Not sure if your preferred access method is supported by Stitch or you're just not sure how to get started? Don't worry - in this (very) brief doc, we'll give you a high-level overview of the different database access methods supported by Stitch.

Supported Connection Methods

Stitch supports the following connection methods to your database:

  • Direct connection
  • SSL - SSL is currently supported for a handful of our database integrations. Click here for more detail.
  • SSH tunnel - As this method is the most secure, it's what we recommend. The majority of our database integrations support SSH tunneling.

In addition, Stitch also supports connecting Amazon Relational Database (RDS)-based databases such as Postgres or MySQL. For more info on how to connect an RDS, check out this tutorial.

Unsupported Connection Methods

The following connection methods are not currently supported. If you're interested in adding support for something on this list, please contact our support team with your use case.

We're always interested in exploring the possibility of the features our customers want, so please don't hesitate.

  • VPN (ex: OpenVPN)
