By default all Aiven services require an authenticated and encrypted connection from client applications. Most problems connecting to Aiven services from JetBrains products are resolved by enabling SSL in the configuration.
The first step is to configure the
Password fields according to your service details gathered from the Aiven Console. Make sure to copy and paste the credentials to avoid typos when filling in this form.
The next step is to enable the
Use SSL checkbox in the
SSH/SSL tab when setting up the connection.
Depending on the product and SSL mode you are using, you might also need to configure the project
CA file which can be downloaded from the Aiven Console in the Service Overview page under
For the SSL
Mode there are two main option to consider:
Verify CA, in which case the
CA fileis required
Required, in which case the
CA fileis sometimes required and depends on the JDBC driver behaviour
Once you have configured everything then click
Test Connection to confirm that everything is working correctly.
