For Stitch to successfully connect with your Postgres-RDS instance, you'll need to add our IP addresses to the appropriate database Security Group.
- In the RDS Dashboard page, click the grey selection box (this is the first column in the table) next to the Postgres instance you created.
- Click the Instance Actions menu towards the top of the page.
- Select the See Details option. This will open the details page for the instance.
- Locate the Security Groups field in the Security and Network section.
- Click the Security Group. This will open the Security Groups page.
- Click the Inbound tab located towards the bottom of the page, then click the Edit button.
- This is where you’ll add the Stitch IP addresses that can access the instance:
Repeat this process until all of the Stitch IP addresses (along with any others you may want to whitelist) have been added.
When finished, click Save.
- Type: Set this to Custom TCP.
- Protocol: This will default to TCP - leave it as-is.
- Port Range: Enter the port associated with the instance. This will be the same port you used to create the instance.
- Source: Paste ONE of the IP addresses listed below into this field. You need to add them one at a time, meaning each IP address gets its own rule:
- Click Add Rule to add another Security Group rule.
In the next step, you'll create a Stitch user for Postgres-RDS database.
