Accessing Google Cloud SQL in Glide

Google Cloud SQL as a data source is available to Business and Enterprise customers only.

SQL and Updates Consumption

SQL data sources consume updates only when you actively modify data within your Glide app (add, edit, or delete operations). Routine syncing and querying operations do not use up your Glide app's allotted updates. Changes that result in adding, editing, or deleting data from either Glide or the connected SQL database will accrue updates.

Locating Configuration Credentials

When setting up Google Cloud SQL with Glide, you will need the correct configuration credentials, which include the username, password, host, and database name. These are typically found within your hosting platform’s database access settings or provided as a connection string.

Configuring IP Allowlist for Google Cloud SQL

If your host platform requires an IP address to be added to the allowlist for security reasons, you should add Glide’s IP address:

Google Cloud SQL Security and Glide

By default connections are encrypted using either TLS for direct secure communication or SSH tunnels for encrypted connectivity. Glide also verifies certifications from recognized global or Amazon RDS roots.

Most hosted platforms use certificates that have been signed by trusted root certificate authorities. Glides platform supports such certificates in addition to certificates issued by AWS RDS service.

Users of Google CloudSQL should utilise the CloudSQL specific integration as it will make use of Google Cloud Platform APIs in order to connect using secure ephemeral certificates.

If you are self-hosting your database and don't have the ability to acquire a root signed certificate (or your host doesn't provide one) you will need to disable TLS certificate verification at this time.

Adding Multiple Instances of Google Cloud SQL

Glide supports integration with multiple Google Cloud SQL databases. To add another database:

  1. Navigate to “App Settings.”

  2. Click “Integrations.”

  3. Select “Google Cloud SQL.”

  4. Follow the prompts to configure additional databases as needed.
