Enable public access in a VPC#

To enable public access for a service which is running within a virtual private cloud (VPC), follow these steps:

  1. Log in to the Aiven web console and select your service.

  2. On the Overview page, scroll down to the Advanced configuration section and click Add configuration option.

  3. Select an option that starts with public_access followed by the type of service you use and switch it on.

  4. Click Save advanced configuration. The Overview page now has an Access Route setting inside the Connection information with Public and Dynamic options.

  5. Select Public to see the public URL for your service.

The connection with the Dynamic option is not possible outside the VPC, while the connection with the Public option is accessible over the public internet. The IP allow list applies to all connection types (Dynamic and Public, in this example).


You can change the public_access settings without any service downtime.
