Step 3: Configuring the Postgres-RDS Firewall Settings

Please note that our Postgres destination is currently in open beta. The information in this article is subject to change.

For Stitch to successfully connect with your Postgres-RDS instance, you'll need to add our IP addresses to the appropriate database Security Group.

  1. 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.
  2. Click the Instance Actions menu towards the top of the page.
  3. Select the See Details option. This will open the details page for the instance.
  4. Locate the Security Groups field in the  Security and Network section.
  5. Click the Security Group. This will open the Security Groups page.
  6. Click the Inbound tab located towards the bottom of the page, then click the Edit button.
  7. This is where you’ll add the Stitch IP addresses that can access the instance:
    • 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.
  8. Repeat this process until all of the Stitch IP addresses (along with any others you may want to whitelist) have been added.
  9. When finished, click Save.
