You can add internal connections from an application’s Settings page or a database’s Info page. It doesn’t matter where you start the process; the result will be the same.
- If you’d like to add a connection from an application, use the Add connection button in the Internal connections section of the Settings page.
- If you’d like to add a connection from a database, use the Add application button in the Internal connections section of the Info page.
In both cases, you’ll see the same interface allowing you to select the database or application you’d like to create the internal connection to.
We can automatically populate environment variables in the application from the database connection details. If you’d like that to happen, select the Add environment variables to the application checkbox. Applications may expect environment variables with different names, so you can edit them in the list before adding the connection. The
PORT for the application is within Settings and the default
PORT for internal connections is
8080. To view the
PORT on the database, within Info, click Connection details.
