The PostgreSQL resource allows tasks and runbooks to connect to a PostgreSQL database. For a high-level introduction to resources, see the resources page.
Creating a PostgreSQL resource
To create a new PostgreSQL resource, visit resources for your team, click the "New" button, and select the PostgreSQL resource type. Enter your connection details in the form:
Name should be a human-readable name for your resource. You'll use this name to later reference this resource in tasks.
Host should be the IP address or DNS name of your database. Unless you're connecting to this database behind a self-hosted agent (see Private Networking below), this should be the public IP address and/or the public DNS name of the database.
If your database has restrictions on incoming network connections, you'll need to ensure the Airplane IP addresses are whitelisted:
To connect to a database inside a private VPC, you can self-host the agent and run the agent within your own VPC. Since tasks and SQL queries run on agents, these tasks will run from within your network and be able to connect.
