App Platform -- Static IP
We should be able to securely whitelist our infrastructure to access external resources, without apps being able to be given static IP addresses we can not use the service without opening our infrastructure to security problems.

Hi All— We are doing user research to understand the different use cases as the team works on a plan for how to address this request. To that end, we are looking to meet with 5-6 members of our community to do discovery on what is required for this capability to be successful.
If you are interested in chatting, please fill out this Google Form and I will be reaching out in the next few days. Thank you in advanced!
Looks like these guys are either not capable of implementing this feature or dont bother. Better to switch to Google App Runner. It is also gonna be cheaper. Tarrek (Product Manager) - last call. Its shameful you dont provide basic update when you say its being seriously considered 3+ months ago to provide false hope.
I really need this to use a certain API..
+1 this would be a game changer
Tarrek (Product Manager) Are we ever going to see this feature come alive?
If you can proffer other solutions, probably with an extra droplet to proxy the server, please give a walkthrough as this is really required ASAP.
+1 Vote. I came here because I need to whitelist the IP to use a certain API. No static IP, no business for me. Unfortunately I must go somewhere else until this is solved. Really loved the experience of creating the app and everything, well done.
adding my vote - this is a critical feature. Use case is a node app on app platform that needs to access mongoDB Atlas.
Tarrek (Product Manager) - 3 months gone, whats the outcome of your research. Extremely critical feature. Almost 200 votes and you still dont realize the importance of this feature. Security is paramount.
any news about this?
Another usecase would be DNS A records.
Currently I cannot use my apex domain, because my registrar does not support ALIAS "records" and everything else besides A records is for subdomains only. So I would need a static IP to which I can point the A record.
Pascal: If it helps at all you could alternatively use a reverse proxy to proxy your apex domain to the app. I do this with an nginx Droplet, and also use the proxy for rate limiting. You can use one proxy to serve multiple domans and apps. It's not too hard to configure.
I came over to Digital Ocean because Heroku was nickel and dime every little functionality and it was frustrating.
All I want to do is whitelist my app's ip address so that I can securely connect to a mongo database.
Please add this feature soon, and thank you!
