Private network access

If you want to access the database using a private network, choose the same location where your application instances are located. In this case all services will be on the same virtual private network and can be accessed via local IP addresses.


That's pretty much it. Now click Deploy and wait for the deploy to complete. When it's finished, you'll receive a fresh instance of your database.

All the requisites and connection strings for different programming languages are available in the database Dashboard.
