Enable public access in VPCs#

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

  1. Log in to Aiven Console and select your service from the Services page.

  2. On the Overview page of your service, scroll down to the Advanced configuration section and select Change > 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 section 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. 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.
