First of all, I hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy!
I have a couple of quick questions that relate to several (mock) applications that I have deployed to Heroku for use in my portfolio (I’m also asking on behalf of a potential client that I plan on approaching for a one off job soon…):
I have successfully used mLab as an add on in the past and I have also just migrated one of my Heroku hosted applications over to Atlas (realizing that mLab will no longer be available as a service) with no problem via this migration guide: Guide to Migrating a Sandbox Heroku Add-on to Atlas. I plan to migrate my remaining test applications that need to connect to Atlas via this guide as well, so no problem there, especially being that these are just mock applications.
My first question is this: what is the best way to connect to Atlas from Heroku going forward? There is no (as far as I can see from searching online) real clear or easy way to retrieve an IP address from Heroku so that it can be whitelisted for a direct connection to Atlas.
Will there be another service available for sandbox applications to connect to Atlas in the future? I’m also wondering how to connect a production ready Heroku application to Atlas (or maybe via another paid service if need be…) , as again, getting an IP from Heroku to whitelist seams to be quick tricky. Maybe I’ve missed something…not sure…
Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!!
Cheers and be well
